I'm going to start this post by showing you a few pictures of people from China. These particular examples of people in China were taken by someone in Shanghai. I found them on the internet after a did a photo search using "Chinese Squat". I knew I would find some of these pictures. My point in posting them is that this position is very common. Any time there is a need to wait for some time, you will find at least one person, but more likely several in the "Chinese Squat" position. It's something that they start from babyhood and then continue to do over the course of their life. Yes, they do squat to go potty, but it's very prevalent in day to day life; waiting for the bus, smoking, chatting with a friend, buying eggs...whatever.
AND NOW, LAINA.
You can see, she is well on her way to perfecting the Chinese squat. It's very funny, she would rather play in the squat position than plop down on her rear end the way I've seen other kids do. I wonder, very tongue in cheek, if there's a "Squat" gene.
