This poop story is a newsflash of sorts. Breaking news! This just in!
Lila pooped on the potty!!
Hooray! Three cheers for Lila! Hip-hip-HOORAY! Hip-hip-HOORAY! Hip-hip-HOORAY! And, one little sniffle for Lila's Mommy because how old is my Baby Girl that she's pooping on the potty!? *Sniffle*
She's been curious about the potty recently so today I got out the potty seat that someone gave us and asked if she wanted sit on it. Which she did. With great excitement, but no "product." Then, a few hours later, she pointed to the potty and said, "A-gah?" (For those of you who don't speak Toddler-ese, that's "again?") So I plopped her up there again, and again no potty. Not that I was surprised. She's only 18 months and I wasn't expecting her to be ready yet.
Then tonight she was you know, breaking wind...cutting the cheese...stepping on a duck...you know...(tooting) so I asked her if she wanted to go sit on the potty. "Yesh." So we tried again, but this time when I said, "Do you have to poop?" She grunted in response. I enthusiastically encouraged her and soon I heard a distinctive *plop* (too much information?) and I just about did a jig in excitement. (These are the things that get you worked up when you're a parent.) Yay! Lila pooped in the potty! Lila pooped in the potty! And of course I had Eric take pictures to document the event.
|No, no, Lila you can't get down yet! Mommy's documenting!|
I'm sure she's not really ready to potty train. I think this was just a happy accident. Hey a poop in the potty is one poop I won't have to rinse or dump from a diaper (and risk misplacing)! I'm sure when we're really ready to potty train we'll have lots of not-so-happy accidents to tell you about. I fear this blog is about to get a lot poopier. I'll try to control myself.
