When You’ve Gotta Go….

Whether it’s the Gulf of Mexico or Lake Michigan, my kids think it’s the coolest thing in the world to pee in a large body of water. (Luckily, we’ve trained them very well to not go in pools!)  It started out when they were three, and we’d take them to the beach not far from our house.  They would sit down and just let the pee flow, all while giggling up a storm. Now that they’re a little older, they often forget that it’s not really socially acceptable to just relieve yourself in public. They typically sprint toward the water, while yelling “I’VE GOTTA PEE!!!!” at the top of their lungs.  And now, they usually don’t even sit down. They just stand straight up in the water and let the pee flow down their legs.  We try to remind them that they need to move to another part of the water and rinse themselves off, but they sometimes (actually most of the time) forget and come running back to announce that they’re done peeing.  The other beachgoers usually laugh under their breaths, while my husband and I just shake our heads and wonder whether our children are hillbillies.
