Potty Outside

Lily loves to do everything Nate does. Along with that comes her wanting to pee outside like her brother. We had a difficult time while camping, because she wanted to drop her pants and pee outside just like the boys. Tonight's episode had me laughing at both children, and shaking my head in disbelief. The kids were playing outside at my sister's house, and Nate had to pee, but couldn't get his pants down in time and wet his pants. Lily came inside to tell me, and I thought it was a joke. I walked outside to see Nate all wet, and told him to go to the van to get his change of clothes (I always carry a spare in the van). Then Lily comes out of the bathroom with her pants around her ankles saying her pants are wet. I asked her why her pants are wet and she tells me she was trying to pee (standing up) outside like her brother. So I went to the van to get her spare clothes, and find Nate in tears because he slammed his fingers in the door. He was also too embarrassed to change inside, so he was changing in the back of the van. I feel sorry for the kid, but at the same time am laughing at how funny the whole thing is. So Nate got the talk about not waiting too long to pee and Lily got another round of girls can't pee outside like boys. At least I didn't have as much laundry to do as Tiffani (check out her blog about the boys peeing on Everything!).

Boys will be boys, but girls w/brothers and those cool hoses will try to be boys too. At our house it is called "outdoor business" for boys b/c they can pee outside and "indoor business"
for girls since they have to pee inside. Of course that dosen't stop Kolette from standing next to the toilet and seeing how she can make hers work like Ian & Connor. At least you were prepared.

At least I am not the only one with the smell of pee in the laundry! That was pretty funny, though!
