Milestone reached!!

It's interesting how kids grow and change.

E has mastered #1 in the potty for quite some time now...I cannot remember the last accident he had. #2 though, has been a whole 'nother story!

Once upon a time, long, long, ago he pooped in the potty w/o a problem and we celebrated. Despite the positive experience, he later decided he would not use the potty for #2. Flat out refused. Since then, we have been using Pull Ups for #2 only. It was so ridiculous that he would go into his room, get the Pull Up himself and put it on. He would then let me know when he was ready to be cleaned up. Oh joy!!

Well, I am SO glad to say that those days are O.V.E.R.

On Friday, after getting home from school/work, E announced that he needed to do his business and I reminded him that we ran out of Pull Ups the day before and that he would have to go on the potty.

His response: "ok".......what? You mean after putting up a MAJOR fuss for many long months, he simply said "ok" and to the bathroom we went. I was so excited AND so was he! It was rather funny even. Oh and having the cute turtle guy on the flushable wipes container was an added bonus. I had purchased these wipes a while ago and told him we could not use them until he starting pooping in the potty. It's the little things, people!!

Now we have a handful of #2 potty visits under our belt and all is good in this diaper/pull-up free household!! Woohoo!!

Woohoo! We are working on #1 here right now...she's FINALLY willing to sit on the potty. I don't know if she'll ever do #2. She did pass a little gas while on the potty today...looked down and said "I see farts." ;) Ah...potty humor...literally!
