    I've got a little boy. He's only 3.

    Too short to pee into the toilet standing up, he sits on the toilet seat and uses both arms to brace himself while he pees so he doesn't fall into the toilet.

    One day, I'm working in the den and he says to me - "I need to go to the bathroom."

    I say "Go ahead, you don't need me."

    He goes into the bathroom and after a bit he yells out "It's sticking up, it doesn't go down".

    I ignore him.

    Then he says - "Daddy, the walls all wet."

    I go into the bathroom and there's water on the wall in front of the toilet dripping down into a puddle on the floor.

    I look at him still sitting on the toilet. Oh, so that's what was sticking up.

    Shanes only 2

    so I still lift him up there. But he likes straddlin the big toilet that Daddy uses. Never even tried his potty chair. It's funny to watch, legs straight out to the sides like he's doin the splits, 1 or 2 hands forward for balance, and when he goes he bends right down so he can "see it! Pee in a poddy!" Hasn't done the arch thing yet tho. Funny!
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    My son is 5 and I let im stand on my feet so he can reach the pot or urinal. Some of those toilets are so high, I sometimes have a problem.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    Build a little step stool, so that he can climb onto it, and be at the correct level. As he grows, cut the legs on the step stool so that he's at the correct level.

    Make it real stable though, so he doesn't tip it over when he's up there. Paint it his fav. color, put spiderman stickers on it... and Bob's your Uncle!

    With kids that's funny. I hate it when I wake up and have to pee with a woody. I have to put one hand on the wall in front of me and lean wayyyyyy foward to get a decent shot into the toilet. Then there's the slit pee. It shoots in 2 different directions. What's up with that?
