Pee in the Potty

And also on the potty, and near the potty, and so forth. But, actual pee in the potty. It's a banner day!

Q has been particularly squirrelly about having his diaper changed lately, so when he refused to let me change him this morning, I asked if he wanted to go on the potty. He said yes, so I let him walk to the bathroom. Lo and behold, while I was putting some towels away, he piped up, "Messy, mama!"

I was so surprised that I didn't have a potty-training strategy in place, with sticker charts, M&M bribes, or anything. "Good job, Q! What a big boy!" I gave him more praise, but he didn't see what the big deal was. He just wanted to get on helping me wipe up the floor with a paper towel.

Maybe it will happen again some day.

In other news, I made a trip to Target today to pick up some soap, so I stopped by the handbag department. No ruffled purse. All gone. Oh well, I tell myself that if I'd really, really wanted it, I would have paid full price instead of waiting for the third round sale.

I have to be honest, I looked at Target the other day for the ruffled purse. I was going to buy it for without strings. It was already gone. Broke my heart!

A great start in the training process.

Mayberry said...

Aww...that purse will be known as the one that got away.

Good job Q!! (Did you see the toddler urinal I linked to? Maybe he'd like it to contain the mess! lol)

hooray for bubbers! :)

Hurray for Q!

I've been reading potty training stuff on the web, and trying to introduce Ian to the concept, I still have no idea what I'm doing. Maybe that's why it's taking so long for us to get this ball rolling. Ugh.

Bummer about the bag, oh well.

Momma to LG - Thank you so much for looking. :)

Dad and Lara - we're hoping for a second occurence.

Mayberry - that link is too funny. Peter Potty indeed.

Mamacita tina - Mayberry did a review of a DVD a few days ago that sounded interesting. We haven't bought it, but are thinking about it!
