I remember one time when my husband, kids and I were desperately trying to make a flight to Vancouver. We were late leaving the house, and just as we were about to get into the car, my younger daughter (who was about 4 at the time) announced that she had to use the bathroom. I said "Oh, boy - is there any chance you can hold it, sweetie?" "I'll try." We got stuck in traffic, and we ended up missing our flight. After rescheduling to a later flight, I suddenly remember Daughter's predicament. "Honey, do you still need to go?" (Dumb question, I know.) "Uh-huh." "Okay, let's go!"
Poor little lass. She was a real trooper.
