posed/poised

ok, readers. answer me this: how inappropriate is it to pull down a two-year-old’s pants and undies and let her pee on the grassy boulevard of a quiet residential street?

(this question only applies to pee.  no poop.  we’ll leave that to the dogs.)

    I think anything is okay in the name of potty training… But, I’m biased. I let Em run free and pee in the grass in the backyard yesterday — she loved it!

    Eh, not too bad. I say you get a free pass on these things as long as you are under five.

    We do it with our 3 1/2 year old daughter when things are urgent…we call it a “nature pee,” and she is both horrified and thrilled when we do. So glad I found this link again to see your wonderful growing family!

    Did anyone see? If not, you’re golden (well, maybe “golden” isn’t the correct word …)

      oh, dear. this has now happened so many times that we probably have a city-wide-known nickname. like… the peebodies. or maybe just “that crazy woman who lets her kid pee on the street.”
