Yes, I'm once again writing about poop.
I make no apologies for this - I have two kids, one of whom is learning how to use the potty.
And today, we had a small success (but really, when it comes to potty training...any success is good!).
I found Emma standing the family room in what I like to call her "poop stance" - she stands very still with a look of sheer concentration on her face until she does the dirty deed.
"Emma, are you poopy?"
"Do you need to go potty?"
"Yes. Emma go on potty."
And so, I set Em on the potty and well....she pooped.
And I jumped up and down yelling "Yay Emma! You POOPED ON THE POTTY!"
My favorite moment: when we flushed and Emma said "bye bye poopy!!" while waving at the swirling toilet water.
I'm hoping this was the first of many potty training success.
Update 8:03 pm: So, I just changed yet another poopy diaper. So much for success.
