toilet requisites

this isn’t a phrase i’m familiar with (despite walking past it for the last 6 months every evening and only noticing it for the first time today).
what are ‘toilet requisites’ ?
* are they things you eat and drink to produce toilet bound matter ?
* are they bladders and bowels ?
* are they running water and/or a chemical facility ?
* are they a newspaper and some privacy ?
kezia is potty training at the moment. she just decided it was time and we (quite literally) decided to go with the flow.
she’s adopted her own language. instead of saying “i need a wee-wee” she says “i’ve done a poo”.
we know what it means but she scared people in the creche at church last week because they didn’t realise it was a request to be taken to the toilet rather than information on what hadn’t happened.
just for your information she calls a poo a ‘preecy-egg’. she also calls Easter Eggs ‘preecy-eggs’. we had a very cheap easter this year …

  1. Oh, my, but I can’t stop laughing! I’d hate for the Easter bunny to have left THAT in my basket. By the way, is “wee-wee” what kids call urinating in England? Do they say “I need a wee-wee”?

  2. sarah – yes, wee-wee is a urination (you put it so politely!)
    feisty – be nice if the mugs said “it’s a preecy egg!” on the other side (or maybe on the inside at the bottom so you saw it when you’ve drunk your drink)

  3. I hope that it is polite. English and American are deceptively similar, yet are so different. Imagine my surprise when I visited London and I learned that I was supposed to ask where the toilets are, not just the “bathrooms”, a much more general thing to ask for in the U.S. that leaves more to the imagination than asking for the actual toilet! It took me a bit to get over the embarrassment of that one!

  4. Sarah, it’s just as well you don’t ask for the restrooms. You may have been directed a nicely lit room with lots of comfy chairs, standard lamps, scatter cushions etc. Very restful…
