Today, our baby girl,
she who is all of 20 months old...
went poop and potty on the potty chair!!!
Started out as a sheepish, "Poopy?" statement (question?) by her. I figured she had already gone, checked her pants and discovered they were clean!! So, off to the potty we ran.
After some squirming and wriggling (a strange little poopy dance on the potty) she did the deed!! And we hooted and hollered and did somersaults and backflips and round-offs (for this is much too important of an occasion for mere cartwheels)! Yippee Tiny Girl!!! A sucker was her prize, and she walked around basking in her glory!
While she has completed this task before, it was never with such intent!!
So, we left her diaperless...just in case the task wasn't completed.
Then, she did something amazing.
Standing on a stool, she (again sheepishly) said, "Potty?" And I said, "Oh, no...gotta go on the..." Wait! She didn't pee on the stool!
So, off to the potty we sprinted! Plopped that little behind on the seat and waited. In my potty-training experience, I've discovered a little flow of warm water over the bottom works wonders to start the flow. So, out comes the trusty "peri-bottle" (left over from the days of post-partum soreness) and a little squirt and voila!!! TONS of potty!!!!
Another happy dance, more somersaults and backflips and round-offs and high-fives! The proud potty-er scored herself a popsicle this time.
And, I think she was even gloating a little...so proud of herself she was!
And so proud of her are we!!!!!
Tomorrow? Big girl unders, wish us luck!
