Potty training is life ...

... well, it's MY life, anyway! :)~
Oh my goodness. How on earth did Lucy get old enough to be POTTY TRAINING already?!?!?

I just can't believe how "grown up" she is becoming...
I decided last week just to see what would happen if I put her on the potty ... and guess what? She went! I just about fell over. Actually, what I REALLY did was scream, which just about scared her right off the potty! :( At that point, I figured she would probably never do it again! But the next time I put her up there, she went again! :)~
So ... pretty much, a week into "potty training", as long as we're home, she can stay dry all day! (Then again, that's only because I'm putting her on the potty just about every 30 minutes! ... and because I'm bribing her with Junior Mints!:-) She'll even poop on the potty, which I've heard is something that's more difficult for toddlers to learn..? The next goal, however, is figuring out how to get her to TELL me when she has to go!?!
Oh well ... it's an adventure. That's for sure. I can tell you one thing though ... I've never spent so much time in a bathroom in my life. And I've never been so excited about poop, either! Wow, I am officially a mom now, I guess. (As if giving birth wasn't enough ... now I get to spend 12 hours a day in the bathroom and cheer for poop!:)~ But I love it. And I wouldn't trade it for the world. :-)
Good job, baby girl ... Mama is so proud of you!!! :-)


  1. Way to go Lucy! And way to go Mom! I'm very impressed by this! And a little jealous... =)~


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
