A couple months ago I posted about Kaitlin pooping on the potty.
We bought her some potty chairs and thought maybe we were on our way, but unfortunately it's been all diapers since then. At one point, we ended up packing her potty chairs away because she just wanted to play with them.

A couple weeks ago we decided to pull them out and give the potty thing another shot. This time she's definitely showing some serious interest in the potty. She has been asking to sit on the potty (even though nothing happens) and insists on wiping, closing the lid, and flushing the toilet each time.

Tonight, I caught her just as she was starting to poop, and asked her if she wanted to go to the potty instead. Her usual response is "no", but tonight she surprised me and said "YES!" So, we rushed to the potty and she sat down and finished!!! After making a BIG ordeal about how exciting pooping in a potty is (chuckle, chuckle..) she insisted that we call Daddy - "and Grandma too" to share the good news.

I never knew how proud one small poop could make me feel.
♥ I love being a mommy ♥

Oh yes, the joys of "poop"! I still remember what toy it cost me: one 4-foot long bulldozer! Happy potty training (BTW "training really refers to the parents, not the kids!)

Congrats on another mini-milestone. The best part is she knew she did something worthy of a major announcement. Thats the key, praising the good stuff. Keep up the good work.
