Stranger Gives Her Daughter A Bracelet In McDonald's Bathroom. Mom Speaks Out
Cailyn Finkel 2/1/2017
Having a toddler is stressful for too many reasons to count. Talking back, learning to run, the urge to dress themselves and potty training all rank up there for the most difficult things about raising a little one with a big personality.
Unfortunately, when talking back and potty time are combined, you get a toddler whose likelihood of an accident increases dramatically. That's what happened with Tiffany Miller and her 3-year-old daughter in the bathroom of a Kansas McDonalds - and it was an unlikely hero that swooped in and saved the day.
Tiffany shared what happened in that dingy McDonald's bathroom with the Love What Matters Facebook page.
It makes total sense why her post has since gone viral!
"To the Woman in the Salina, Kansas McDonald's bathroom:
You heard me as I reasoned with a 3 year old to use the bathroom.
You heard me tell her we had a long drive home and she needed to use the potty. You heard her tell me she was scared the toilet would flush while she was sitting on it. I couldn't convince her I would block the sensor and keep that from happening. She promised she could hold it and wouldn't pee in the car."

"Then, you stepped in. You told her you would give her a bracelet if she would go potty for Mommy. She perked up and agreed. I turned to quickly put her on the potty (before she changed her mind). You told her the bracelet would be waiting outside the stall for her. I turned to say thank you, but you were already gone.
Outside the stall was a bracelet and a mini Snickers bar.
Her eyes lit up as she put the bracelet on after using the bathroom.
We made it home to Wichita safely and she is currently sleeping soundly next to me...still wearing the bracelet.
Thank you for your kindness! I wish I could have thanked you in person, but maybe you will see this. If not, hopefully it inspires someone else to be kind like you were.
A Grateful Mother"
Thankfully, the stranger help persuade Tiffany's stubborn little lady to use the restroom - that way the rest of their trip home could be accident free. The kind woman didn't need to get involved, but Tiffany is so glad she did!
The bracelet and the candy bar may not have meant much to the kind stranger, but her actions meant the world to Tiffany and her little girl.
