Poop Happens…Today, it happened when I was not looking…
Close, but no cigar…that potty got PRETTY lucky! Our cat approached the evidence and was confused. That was one impressive poop for a little girl. I was kind of jealous, not going to lie.
I’m no “potty pusher”; however, my daughter has been genuinely interested in going on the potty like her crazy mom for awhile now. I’ve let her guide me at her own pace; she is only 17 months old. I noticed when she was 14 months that she started to want out of the bath tub sooner than normal. She would stand up and pee. In turn I introduced her to Mr. Potty after “tubby time” and my amazing Pee Pee in the Potty dance. FYI-I’ve got killer dance moves. Sometimes, I think she just wants to see me bust a move so she pretends to have to potty.
Last Friday she Doogie Howser MD’ed in the potty 3 times. The first was because she was turning a violent shade of red so I plopped her down on it-and presto. The second one she wanted the lollipop I bribed her with. The third one I practically caught in my hand-but still counts. That was the first time I had to clean up #2 in the potty. ICK!
I was beyond excited and proud of my little “potty animal” for making #2 somewhere close to her throne. I will ALWAYS teach my children that even though in some people’s eyes “almost doesn’t count” in my eyes, it is the effort that matters. And I give this an A+ for effort!
