Pee-ness Envy

Sometimes life just isn't fair. See any of the last 114 free agent signings by George Steinbrenner. Or see our bathroom floor. This morning, our 2-year-old daughter, Anna Claire, continued her budding courtship with the potty. After exercising her squatter's rights for a few minutes with nothing to show for it, she stood up, turned around, and proceeded to relieve herself. And she missed. Badly.

That she would attempt to stand and deliver isn't so surprising. For two years, she's watched her two older brothers do the exact same thing, including the part about missing badly. As a matter of fact, I didn't actually witness the wetness. I got the news secondhand from the missus because I was helping one of the older boys clean up his own miss/mess in the other bathroom.

As our society grows increasingly homogenized, even across gender lines, isn't it okay that the two sexes do some things differently? Not all messes can be cleaned with Lysol and a sponge.
