The Family Restroom Experience
From Carol: The first thing I noticed when we arrived at the stadium via the Centerfield entrance yesterday was a lengthy line for the "family restroom" off to the right. At least 10 families were waiting for their turn. For those of you who don't know -- and I didn't before I had kids -- a family restroom is a single room that contains a toilet, a sink and most importantly, a door that can be locked so that mom or dad can take care of their business without worrying that one of the youngsters might escape while the parent is otherwise occupied. Every member of the family can find relief and get cleaned up while in the family restroom. But that can take some time, even for the smallest of families, so when you encounter a family restroom line that is 10 families deep, it might be wise to move on.
On the Gallery level where we sit, there are two family restrooms. At first, I thought that just two could not possibly accommodate the number of families that might need the facilities, but there was no line any of the times I walked by either of the family restrooms yesterday. So, my advice is to avoid the lines at the front of the stadium and head closer to your seats. You might not have to stand in line, and the bathroom may even be in a better condition because it has been used less.
And please remember to be courteous to the next family who will visit the restroom. Please be sure to clean up after yourself. Yesterday, I entered a family restroom twice to find remnants of the last family's seat cover. If you've hung out with an active 18-month-old, you probably understand that uttering the words, "Don't touch that" is fairly useless.
