We've reached Potty Training 2.0
It's like Windows 8 but without all the...whatever Windows 8 does.
Finn observed somebody pee standing up. I'm not sure who this mysterious model of peeing behavior was because Brendan is all weird and private about peeing alone and not in front of the children. Even though I never pee alone. And even though he always talks on the phone while he's peeing. Which I think is more weird than peeing in front of your kids. Meh, to each his own.
Where was I?
Oh yeah, peeing standing up.
I think Finn saw some other kid pee standing up at school (where they DO pee with the door open) because one day he refused to pee sitting down.
His aim is actually pretty good, so that's not the issue.
The issue is that he has a twin sister who ALSO wants to pee standing up. She has started yanking down her pants and saddling up to the toilet like an old western cowboy while I slow-motion a "Nooooo!" and dive toward her.
And then I have to explain penises and vaginas and how we got jipped in the toileting area because we're girls and hiking won't be as fun and you don't get to write your name in the snow, so sorry.
She doesn't quite get it yet.
And meanwhile, Finn hasn't grasped the importance of being taller than the toilet when he tries to pee standing up in the public bathrooms at Target.
This whole physics of toileting stuff is hard, man. Nuances- They'll get you every time.
