Rejoice With Us!!!!!!!!

I'm so excited I can hardly sit still. I have amazing news. No, I'm not pregnant. No, Easy didn't get a new job. No, Vivian is not crawling. But.....................

Tripper poo-poo'd in the potty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woo Hoo!!!!!!! There was dancing and singing and double the usual candy reward. I think he was proud. He of course had to get down and turn around and inspect his production. Once he was satisfied that indeed, that poo-poo came out of him and into that potty he was happy to flush and tell it "Bye bye poo poo!"

OK, now that the celebrating has subsided I have to admit that I really haven't a clue if he did it on purpose or not. He was getting very still and serious at the table while we were having a bit of family crafting time. (Yes, Easy was crafting too.) We asked if he needed to go and after thinking about it he said "Poppy." Off we went. There was a very lengthy TT period and then it stopped but he didn't sit up. (He leans forward on the potty so as not to shower himself or his assitant.) I was just about to ask if he was all done and I heard the most wonderful sound I've heard in quite a while. Who knew ploppity-plop could sounds so great?!?!?! In an effort not to terrify him with sqeauls and shouts of delight I simply said very calmly and queitly "Tripper, you poo-poo'd in the potty! Good job Buddy!" Once we were all done the above mentioned celebration began.

So, I'm going to go with yes, he knew what he was doing. I feel better about that than we just happened to catch it at the right time. Either way, I finally beleive we are truly on the way to a potty trained Tripp! Feel free to rejoice and do a happy dance - once he's trained I'll probably stop blogging about poop!

Yea, Tripper! We did a happy dance at our house as well.

Only parents/grandparents of children/grandchildren in the midst of potty training can truly relate to the joy of that first "poppy poop."

Give Tripp and big hug from Graggie and Dadoo!

Yea, Tripper!!!!! I'm so excited for you all. It's going to be different to keep Tripp at times, only 1 to 2 kids diapers to change. That is if Viv is with him. I'm looking forward to potty training Jacob. I did a little happy dance for Tripp also. Congrats Tripp!!! BIG HUGS from Ms Stephie.

Way to go Tripp! I'm so happy for you're almost decreasing diaper detail by 50%! Oh, how I long for that day...I keep asking Jason if I can start in on Norah as soon as she starts walking, and he hits me with this fruedian mumbo jumbo about my giving her anal tendencies later in life...oh well...guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there....for now, I'll rejoice with you!
