Wah-hoo Moment!

This is a wah-hoo moment for our household.

Well, Avery has been doing great tee-teeing on the little potty. We're still working on doing the 'other' in the potty. Gotta look for some good books.

The big story is Ian working on tee-teeing. Today before taking a shower, he TOLD me he needed to go tee-tee. He has occasionally been going on Avery's little potty, but he's really getting kinda big for it. But, hey, whatever works! Anyway, today he wanted to stand up and tee-tee at the big potty (which is how they work with him at school). AND HE DID IT! Usually he gets so excited, he squirts a little, then stops (then sometimes finishes on the floor). I used Avery to talk him into going more. It worked. He even came back to the toilet a minute later to finish up. Oh, he was so proud (not to mention how proud Mommy and Avery were of him!). He high-tailed it, naked, to his bathroom to get his 2 M&M's and put a sticker on his calendar. Then he was proud to call his Aunt Judie and tell her what he did.

I know it will still take a while, and we will go through lots more diapers, but I'm sooooo proud everytime he goes! Every step is a big one to me! Wah-hoo!

I never could understand why parents felt to share their childrens pottying stories. But now that I've been through the trenches I fully understand. What is even wierder...I enjoy reading them too!! WTG AVERY!!! Woohoo

This is great news! I wish I could get Blake to go in the potty! He's four, too.

I think I'm going to like having these connections with other FX moms. Where I used to work, I would listen to all the "cute" stories that other mothers shared about their kids, but I could rarely share any of mine; they just wouldn't "get it."
