A young mother of twins decided to conduct potty training at a dining table in a popular Utah deli.
The picture an onlooker snapped and posted on Facebook has a lot of people talking.
If anyone understands how stressful potty-training can be, it’s mother of three, Kimberly Decker.
In fact, she just finished potty training her little boy and couldn’t leave her house for several days during the process.
That’s why she was so shocked at what she witnessed Tuesday at the Thanksgiving Point Deli.
“I noticed that this lady was having her two – she had two twins, two little girls about 2-and-a-half years old, sitting on what I thought were booster seats,” Decker said.
But after doing a double take, she realized they weren’t booster seats, they were child port-a-potties.
“She had to undo the jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties,” Decker said.
Decker snapped a picture on her cell phone, while she and her friend stared in awe.
“The more you thought about it, the more unappetizing everything looked around me,” Decker said. “I was like this is not ok, we’re eating, there was a business meeting with about five or six businessmen going on right next to me. The place was packed.”
Spokeswoman for Thanksgiving Point, Erica Brown, said they received several complaints from patrons.
Their staff didn’t realize what was going on among the crowd until after it was already over, but she added they would have asked the woman to leave and take the potty training into the restroom.
“I think state and local health codes were probably an issue, as well as just social norms,” Brown said.
Twin sisters, Joan and Patricia Miller, 73, were found dead in their home in South Lake Tahoe on Feb. 27.
California investigators have ruled out foul play and say that they most likely died within a short time of one another.
The El Dorado County Sheriff’s office has been unable to locate the next of kin of the women, who never married. According to a statement, officials are still investigating a cause of death.
After enlisting the help of long time friends and acquaintances, detectives learned that the twins were in the entertainment industry, appearing in the ’50s TV show, “The Hoffman Hayride,” alongside “The Silver Bandit” star Spade Cooley.
It is also reported that they entertained military troops during their careers.
Their parents, who raised them in Portland, Oregon, were also reportedly involved in their careers.
Statements from friends and family have said the twins have lived together and been dependent on one another throughout their lives.
Settling any sibling rivalries won’t be easy for twins Kylee and John Anthony. Each has a claim on being No. 1.
Kylee Kim was born first and biggest at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 31, but she was last, too – the last baby born in 2011 at Rapid City Regional Hospital.
Little brother John Joseph was second and smaller, but he was the first baby born in the new year at the hospital, arriving feet first, three minutes into 2012.
The healthy babies were welcomed by their parents, John and Jolene Anthony, who said they felt lucky and blessed.
“We could go buy a lottery ticket right now,” John Anthony said.
John, 29, a car salesman at Liberty Superstores, and Jolene, 26, assistant manager at Walmart, were married almost three years ago. Each has older children, and they had been hoping to have children together.

An Illinois couple is celebrating the birth of their twins who were born in different states on different days and in different hospitals. Confused yet?
The two are called delayed interval twins.
The first baby was born at a Belleville, Illinois hospital on October 1. Doctors gave the mother medication to stop contractions for the second baby girl because she wasn’t ready to come out.
About a week later, the couple and newborn flew to a St. Louis hospital, where the second twin was born on October 6.
Rinku Devi is something of a medical oddity. The Indian woman has two wombs and has now delivered two healthy babies – one from each uterus.
The event stunned doctors, who said that giving birth to healthy babies conceived in different ovaries is so rare an average of one case is reported each year anywhere in the world.
Devi just thought that she was carrying twins and was unaware that she had a unique medical condition called uterus didelphys, or double uterus.
It was only during labour that the doctors discovered that Devi had conceived her sons a month apart, during successive menstrual cycles.
‘I got to know about having two uteruses when I was already in labour pain,’ she said.
‘I didn’t know how to react. I was in pain and quite scared. I had not heard of anything like this before. I got to know about the rarity and severity of this condition days after my delivery.
‘I am very happy and feel proud to have survived through this. When I was told I was carrying twins, I thought they would look the same, but I am happy they look different. I want to thank God for giving me a new life,’ she added.
Rinku was not aware that she has two uteruses despite the fact that she had delivered her first baby four years ago,’ said Dr Dipti Singh, her gynaecologist .
‘She had a normal pregnancy before. The chances of carrying a baby in each of the wombs at the same time are one in fifty million.’ Such pregnancies are often fatal for mother and baby, carrying a high risk of miscarriage, premature labour and underweight babies.
Dr Singh said: ‘Fortunately this was a different case because Rinku was healthy and her babies had grown well. To minimise the risk or stress to mother or babies we decided to operate. The caesarian surgery lasted for about an hour and two boys weighing 1.5 and 2 kilograms were born.’
The babies and mother are all doing well.
This is what you get with nationalised healthcare!
Hilton Plettell, 50, from Birmangham received a letter from the ante-natal department of Norfolk and Norwich University NHS Hospital, inviting him to come in for a scan to see how far along his pregnancy is.
Not only was he told that he was pregnant, but that he could also be expecting twins!
Mr Plettell, who has never had children, told newspapers: “I was absolutely flabbergasted.
“It just came out of the blue. I have seen the funny side of it and all my mates are enjoying ribbing me about it.
“The letter had my correct name, date of birth and National Insurance number so I knew it was genuine and it turns out to be a genuine mistake.”
The funny thing was that the last time he had a scan was over twenty years ago when he went there for kidney stone treatment.
The hospital have apologised for the blunder which blamed a ‘clerical error’.
His partner of five years, 49-year-old Debbie Brennan, said she had never seen Mr Plettell so stunned.
