I'm a big girl

No, not me: S-Boogie. She went pee in her potty for the very first time tonight. I've gotten her to sit on it and try before her bath, since she has her clothes off anyway. So far nothing had happened. But tonight she got up, looked inside, and showed me that she had peed in there! Wow!

The truth is, this doesn't really mean a lot, since she still can't get her own pants off or tell me when she needs to go. I'm not really ready to train her yet, either. I kind of like the diaper thing, to tell you the truth. But, this is a step in the right direction. And now I get to go clean the pee out of the potty. Joy.

Foxy pouring the pee in the toilet

"Bye, Bye Pee Pee!"

I will confess that I left the pee in the potty for a while so Master Fob could come home and see it. Becoming a parent makes you do funny things...

Here's the big question:

Was he as happy as you? or grossed out that you saved it?
I thought it was pretty cool. I suspected, though, that Foxy was just putting off cleaning it out. We agreed that we'll encourage S-Boogie to learn to go in the real toilet--we're not sure cleaning out a little potty is any better than cleaning a dirty diaper.

LOL. True. There are these neat little cushie seats that go right over the big one that are small enough for tiny tushies.

Congrats, Sophie!

Now, more than ever, I want to rent her for extended periods of time...

Congrats to both you and Sophie!

Btw, I don't think I've ever told you this, but I love that you appreciate Gilman's Yellow Wallpaper. That gives you many, pointless, "cool points."

Don't get too excited, TB, since tonight she took off her diaper and then peed on the living room carpet. Potty training is still a work in progress. (Don't worry, it's been cleaned up, so you can feel safe sitting on our floor)

Augh! Reading this post made me remember that I forgot to clean up some pee pee from this morning's post-bath streaking spree. Thanks for reminding me (I think). :)
