Clearly there are differences between boys and girls.The main one being — anatomy. Most every newborn christens their parents with a golden shower during early diaper changes. Girls simply create a puddle while boys are known to shoot straight up. Hence, the invention of the Pee-pee Teepee. I didn't invest in the tiny soakers so I tried to throw a washcloth on his family jewels after every diaper removal knowing for certain he would release a stream as soon as he felt the fresh air. To see what surprised me,


Often enough, he kicked the cloth off almost immediately and made a yellow mess of his room. Unlike girls, the boy urine can end up all over the place. In one instance, he shot over his head hitting the clothes, aspirator and mirror on the dresser behind his changing table. Another time he aimed forward hitting a stack of clean diapers, wipes and burp cloths. I guess I should have assumed such rocket ship antics from my lil squirt.
