Why is my 22 month old peeing on the floor?

I have a 22 month old daughter who now takes off her diaper and urinates on the floor. Is this a sign she is ready for the potty?

"Absolutely! Any behavior change where you child acknowledges more about their control over her peeing/pooping is a step towards readiness. By peeing in your kitchen she shows she has the motor control to hold her urine in, take off the diaper, and then start the urine stream. Great control; take this messiness as a good sign! Get a potty your daughter can get to all on her own. Remind her about the potty when you find her peeing elsewhere. Celebrate when she does pee on her own and encourage her to chose the potty."
