A Potty Story

In the past 2 weeks we've been potty training with Gunner and today he actually pooped on the potty and I was so excited! He was so proud of himself and he should be...this was a BIG step! What he would usually do is run off to a corner and go in his underpants and then come tell me by doing the 'waddle walk' and saying, "Mom, I made Elmo sad becuase I pooped on his face!" (He has Elmo and Mickey underpants).

So today, he was about to go poop and I ran him to the potty in the nick of time! He proudly told me to "go away Mom, I do it myself!" So I left, heard some grunting going on and came back and he had gone! Yea!! Well, the funny part was after that, he told me, "Now I go pee pee!" 

Usually when he goes, I have to help him a little still so I went in to sit on the stool in the bathroom. (He was sitting on the potty and I was facing him). Caleb decided he wanted to come too and I happened to also be holding Bree at the same time (because after all, there was a party going on! Going poop in the potty is cause for a celebration!) So we are all in the bathroom (which is quite small) and Gunner starts to go pee pee. Those experienced Mom's with boys know what is going to happen next...something inside my head said, "Get out now!" Just as he starts to go, I see what is going to happen... the urine is coming straight for me! I turn Bree away just in time, and wouldn't you know, I get sprayed, Caleb gets hit and the wall is soaked! I look up and Gunner has the cutest smile (I wish I had got a picture) and says "Oops! Sorry Mom!"  

Needless to say after that, everyone got hosed down and I took a shower. Oh, how I love being a mother. :)

Did you ever think that poop would be a major controlling factor in your day? I sure didn't.

Isn't Justin glad that he has a desk job? :) I thought potty training was hard, but I'm afraid I'll learn that it's harder with a boy!
