So, for the third time in a month, my son’s swimming class had to be cancelled because one of the toddlers in an early class pooped in the pooh. This is in addition to an episode when we were in Maui last year, and we had to vacate the Marriott’s swimming pool for hours while they cleaned up another pooh in the pool “accidents.” It did not make me any happier when the lifeguard told me that if the kid had “only peed” in the pool rather than “pooped,” they would have been fine and wouldn’t have even closed the pool!
Disgusting. I can’t imagine swimming in some kid’s piss. Seriously, people have to stop taking their kids swimming in public pools until they are fully potty trained. It is inconsiderate to everyone else. My son is missing swimming lessons that I have paid for, and it is just plain gross. I suppose that I cannot blame the parents completely because the diaper manufacturing companies make “diapers for swimming,” which is just wrong. I don’t think they really work. So please, stay in your private pool until you are potty trained.
