By American standards, I live in a very modest home: About 1,200 square feet; vinyl siding; metal roof; nothing too terribly fancy on the inside; but I am fortunate enough to have two bathrooms. Bathroom number one is off the “master” bedroom while bathroom number two is on the other side of the house. This layout has basically determined that one bathroom “belongs” to my wife, leaving the other bathroom for myself.
“What does my floor plan have to do with wisdom?” you may be wondering as you consider the title of this post. I can easily explain.
My daughter was only two-years-old at the time when she shared this bit of wisdom that I’m about to share with you…a bit of wisdom that seems to be quickly disappearing from the American culture today.
One morning I walked into the bathroom (the one off the bedroom) while my wife and daughter were in there only to be greeted with, “You’re in the girl’s bathroom, daddy. You’re supposed to use the boy’s bathroom.”
It’s amazing to me how a two-year-old girl was able to show more wisdom and common sense than a two-hundred-year-old nation!
