Because Really, Why Wouldn't She?

Upon taking our morning walk around the neighborhood, the Tot told me that she needed to go potty. I said "Okay..." and before I could say "we'll start heading home now" she dropped her pants and peed in someone's yard.

I didn't expect I would have to have a "We-don't-use-the-bathroom-on-our-neighbor's-lawn" kind of talk with her.

I should have expected it, but I didn't.

Odd. The "We-don't-use-the-bathroom-on-our-neighbor's-lawn" talk usually comes before, not after the "We-don't-use-the-bathroom-on-a loaf of-bread" talk. At least, that's how it is in every parenting book I've ever read. I know it definitely comes before the "We-don't-use-the-bathroom-on-our-neighbor's-pet" talk. But that usually doesn't come in to play for another year or two.

Odd. I remember someone else going in the grass when she was 4. Funny how what goes around, comes

That walk at Mounds did it for her...she is just a pants dropping machine. I forgot about the loaf of bread until I read Tiffany's comment.

Trail at Mounds
Pumpkin Patch
and now the neighbors lawn! ;) Good luch trying to get little David not to pee everywhere! It comes so much more naturally for least mine!

That Tot, she is a free spirit. Oh, and you might wanna go ahead and have the "we-don't-use-the-bathroom-on-our-neighbor's-pet" talk anyway. Ya know, because really, why wouldn't she?

I think you need to make a list of things we don't pee on. I learned at age 14 that we don't pee in the changing room at KMart. (you think I'm kidding don't you?)
