Potty brag!! (TMI for non parents!)

I know, I know, pride cometh before a fall, I dont care! Today we had a "pj day" & stayed home. We played, I knitted, went out for Puppy Bowl around 4, saw the ducks etc etc. The Wee One took it upon herself to go potty by herself all day. It was great. Then tonight before getting into bed she sat on the potty & pooped! I swear, I almost cried I was so excited! I bought a "June" doll from Little Einstens a couple days ago in anticipation of this day & told her that when it happened that she had a special surprise. She loved it & took June to bed w/ her tonight. Tomorrow we're going to Monkey Joes as a treat as well.

I'm sure accidents will happen but I think this is what she needed for it to really "click". She's been doing great otherwise so I am excited that we are rapidly on our way to being fully trained!

Congratulations!!! What a big girl!!!
I wish I was having as much progress with my three year old. He now wants NOTHING to do with a potty.

YaHOO! Gold star for potty training! I miss the kids being little, but not this particular task! LOL!!!

Hey Laurie, I don't know if you have any interest but I'm hosting a Flirty Apron Swap at and would love it if you could join me!

OH, I'm so happy for you and Wee One! We are potty training, too! 3 nights in a row sleeping in a diaper with no accidents! He's not pooping on the potty yet, but we'll push that issue when we need to.

Yeah for the Wee One!! I don't know how old she is, but my youngest is almost 3 years, and he taught me that some kids just have to do it on their own time. It certainly is a day to celebrate though...when you are all done with diapers. At least another $30 a month for yarn :-)
