Culture Shock!

I've been doing tons of research on China during our wait and 2 things have come up on numerous occasions that are a huge culture shock. The first one is split pants. In the Chinese culture children are potty trained starting as early as 6 months. SHOCKER, I know. I'm just now getting around to it with Britten and he's almost 3. The second is Squatty Potties. Ugh, I'm just hoping that the hotel we stay in is very westernized. I'd bore you with my attempts at explaining both of these to you but instead I thought I'd just give you 2 links to check out. Both will give you much insight into these culture shocks we will soon be engaged in. Believe me, you learn something new everyday on this journey.
