Today we took a quick trip to Home Depot to buy a replacement seat for our ensuite toilet. (We also had to replace the patio door handle because I broke the actual handle right off last week - but that's another story!) The builder-grade seat that came with the house has turned colour and started to peel - odd considering it's the least-used bathroom in our home.
We thought it would be a quick in and out - I mean how many toilet seat options can there really be? And then reality hit and we remembered that nothing is ever a quick in and out with two monkeys in tow, multiple bathroom trips, an overwhelming level of energy and a wall of toilet seats. We found what we needed - budget friendly basic white but this is what caught my eye:

I don't think the picture I've shown is the exact model we found as the monkeys flip-flipped up every toilet seat on display, but the idea is there: a toilet seat with built in potty! The one in store was cheaper and the potty insert stays tucked into the lid magnetically. Great idea and I wish I'd known about these when we forayed into the overwhelming world of potty training. If budget was not a concern, I'd still consider replacing at least two of our toilet seats to avoid little bums splashing into the bowl and the ick-factor of the removable potty inserts. Hmmm....
