With the debate over breastfeeding in public continuing to rage on, Miranda Sowers got into trouble over the weekend for a different kind of public act involving her child.
The Texas mother of three tells KHOU that she took her four-month old daughter into a bathroom at Brother's Pizza Express, only to discover it did not have a changing table.
So she figured she'd use her own table at restaurant to take care of this dirty deed.
"I thought, 'you know what I've got my own changing pad, she's tiny, she fits right here on the chair,'" Sowers explains of the decision. "So I laid her down quickly and quietly changed her diaper."
But not quietly enough for an employee to not notice, leading to Sowers getting thrown out of the establishment.
"As soon as you start opening the diaper, people start complaining about the smell of the diaper," manager Donny Lala told KHOU, defending her staff for giving Sowers the boot.
"Last thing I want is a customer throwing up."
Well then. Safe to say this was the opposite result from the time that mother got a free pizza for breastfeeding her baby in public.
What do you think? Should a mother get thrown out of a restaurant for changing a diaper?
What is it about going to the bathroom that acts as a Bat Signal for children, alarming them to your whereabouts and begging them to be your audience whilst you do your business?
The five second rule takes on a whole new meaning when you're a parent. Is that chocolate on the carpet or poop?
YOU are more impressed with childrens' music than your children and you don't even care who knows it. SING IT, PARENTS!
A quiet house is probably not a good house because if your kids are quiet there's a good chance this is happening.

You SHOULD go to sleep when the kids are in bed, but it's the first time all day you've had control of the television so you embrace it and pay for it the next morning.
Sleeping until 7 a.m. is now considered "sleeping in" and you've woken up in a dark living room more than once with no recollection of falling asleep.
You're still wearing the sweats you were wearing yesterday (and the day before). Bonus? You've figured out how to put those puppies to use.
Grocery shopping alone feels like a vacation and grocery shopping with children should be an Olympic sport. You'd totally get a gold medal! Or bronze. Whichever.

Some things come out of your mouth and you have flashbacks to that one party at college and realize that toddlers are basically tiny drunk people.
Any time you hear the word "MOM!" shouted in your general direction in public, your head turns involuntarily. Then you realize it wasn't even your kid who yelled.
The only way this happens is if the kids are sleeping over at Grandma's house. And even then, you're probably just crashing. In your sweats.
