For about 4 or 5 months now, I've been promising Leeann a potty-party and birthday cake when she goes poo-poo in the big girl potty. On the way home from Lake Shasta last Saturday Leeann said, "Mommy, I need birhtday cake, I need go poo-poo in the big-girl potty!" So after clarifying that she had not yet gone potty, but needed to go potty, we pulled over at an A&W/Cheveron station. I didn't really want to stop because we were only about 10 minutes from home, but this was the first time she ever told me that she needed to go. So I took her in the bathroom and she went poo-poo on the big girl potty! I was soooo proud of her!
And, unfortunatly for her, I had my camera with me, so I took a picture! Notice that she's missing one of her pony-tails :0)
When we got home she said she needed to go again (which I expected because she had only gone a little bit at the gas station). So I asked her if she wanted a book hoping that it would help her to be patient. She wanted one, so I gave it to her and she 'read' while she finished the deed!
What can I say, we're training her early (both for the big-girl potty and for theology!)
She's gonna hate me when she grows up for blogging things such as this!
