Last night I was hanging out at Fervent, talking with the girls. We were right in the middle of discussing something fun, when I felt a little hand tapping my knee and I heard a little voice saying, “‘Scuse, Mommy, ‘scuse.” My son said “excuse me” to get my attention while I was talking! I was so shocked… all my hard work at nagging him to be civilized was paying off! I was so proud of him!
We have been trying to convince Isaiah to poo-poo on the potty. He has always refused, choosing instead to do his jobs in his pants. So every time that happens, we’ve made a big deal out of how disgusting (“‘gusting” as he says) it is. Today, Isaiah came out of the bathroom saying, “That’s ‘gusting, in the potty!” We went and checked and sure enough, he had done a little poop in the potty, not his pants! This was the first time he accomplished this, and I had despaired of it ever happening. We got so excited that I think we scared him a little, until he realized we were happy-excited! He got a special train for his set to commemorate the happy occasion.
