Getting the lay of the land and pee in the hand...

As a parent, there are moments in your child’s life that you will always remember and cherish. Their first words, first steps, graduating high school etc. immediately come to mind. All moments that are worthy of being stored away in the ole long term memory right next to your high school gym locker combo.

There are other moments that deserve to be cherished but for a totally different reason. Things that make for great party conversation or to embarrass her in front of her date before the prom. One of those moments happened recently while we were walking around the new property siting where the new house will go. As she was playing in the leaves and climbing rocks, B realized that she needed to pee. Her potty was several hundred feet away in the car so we asked her if she wanted to pee on the leaves. Of course, she was more than happy to oblidge. So, she yanked her pants down and started to piss standing up. Being the good mother that she is, Marcy sprung into action and tried in vain to keep B from soaking her pants, taking a direct hit to both hands and arms in the process. It was completely hilarious to witness but we were both wondering exactly why she thought she could pee standing up and it occured to us that she has witnessed her loving father relieve himself outside many, many times (I'm a man of nature) and pee sitting down at home (what? considering that I wax my legs it shouldn't come as a suprise that I pee sitting down!) so it isn't suprising that she would make that mistake.
