Potty Training!

So today has been a GREAT day for potty training!!! Morgan was in panties almost the entire day. We did go through about 4 pair, but it was a good day! She would realize that she needed to go, and then say, "Mommy, I gotta go potty!" So we'd rush off to the bathroom...well, she went a bit in her panties, but the majority got in the potty. AND, we went to Arby's for lunch today and she didn't have an accident while we were out! YAY! We usually put a diaper on her when we venture out of the house, but we thought we'd try a short lunch trip. So tonight, at a graduation open house, she was in a diaper, and she told me she had to go potty, and so we went in and she actually went potty somewhere other than her potty chair!! And her diaper was only a little wet! (Can you tell I'm excited?!) She was so cute, she sat there on the potty saying, "Listen mommy! Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle!! I proud of you!" I think we tell her that we're proud of her enough:) My last little bit of excitement came tonight. I was in our back family room, talking to my mom on the phone, and I heard Morgan yell, "Mommy, I go potty!" So I got up, and there she was...sitting - in the dark - in the bathroom on her potty chair! She had gone in all by herself and gone potty!!! Woohoo! I think we're turning a corner!

Anyway, just thought I'd share my excitement! Any mother of a two or three year old who is going through potty training their child can relate to my joy:) She may just be potty trained before the baby gets here...we'll see!! It's a race!

The priority shift that takes place when you become a mom is so funny! Before kids I never got excited about pee... :) As they neared 2 1/2 -3 all of the sudden "potty" became one of the most exciting words in my vocabulary. :) The first time Jay went shopping with me, wearing his underwear instead of a diaper, and came home dry, I thought I was going to pee my pants from excitement. Seriously, it can be one of the most thrilling things ever... :) He is now only wearing a diper at night - taking his naps in underwear was a great milestone. Night time still calls for a diaper or pull up, but I think that is pretty common.
Congratulations on this milestone! I'm so pleased for you!!

That is awesome!!!!! I can relate to your excitement in the backwards way...in anticipation for the day Titus will understand and go to the bathroom in the potty :)

(btw...I remembered your MK :) It is here in the office if you want to venture out again sometime :) )
