It's Kind Of A Big Deal!

This past weekend, we marked a very important event in the lives of all Mommy's and Daddy's of toddlers. Gauge finally went Pee Pee in the potty. We have been sitting him on there periodically, but he would immediately want back off.

On Sunday evening, the kids were outside for a long time playing in their baby pool and sand box. When it was time to come inside to get their baths, I thought what the heck, I'll give it a shot. I sat him on there and he did just a tiny bit. I of course, made all over him....clapping, cheering, the whole nine yards. The more I clapped, the harder he tried to squeeze more out.

Yesterday, he did it again for my husband. This time we got way into and broke out in an impromptu "Pee Pee in the potty" dance right in the middle of the bathroom. Don't laugh, you know you all have done it! LOL :-)

This morning he woke up dry, so I put him on the potty. Boy, did he let loose. This was the most that he had ever done. When he was finished he pointed at me and said "clap!" Isn't that so funny? The best part was...he wasn't done yet. After he managed to squeeze out some more, he wrapped his arm around my neck and pulled me towards him and the potty and said "look!" He is so proud of himself....and we are too!

It's the small accomplishments in life that Mommies and Daddies love the very most!

  2. Yeah for Gauge! It is a huge deal! We are struggling with potty training here at our house and we've been working on it for almost a year! Davis will be 4 in January and knows how to do it, he just doesn't want to be bothered going. Hope your potty training experience with Gauge is better than mine.
