Okay, maybe not huge. But a big deal in our house, nonetheless.
We haven’t started potty training yet. He’s 2.5 and I know that the internets think 2 is the ideal age to potty train, but that’s just not happening yet. Spare me the unsolicited advice.
Anyways. He has big boy undies but we’ve never actually used them. And we have a small potty lid attached to our toilet, so it’s ready whenever he is. On Saturday evening after Jansen’s bath, we started talking about his potty. Stephen asked if it was his potty and asked if he could sit on it. Jansen said no, it was his potty and that he wanted to sit on it. So he did. He sat and sat and sat.
Then he farted.
“I DID IT!!!”
It was the cutest thing ever. He got two M&Ms and big hugs. Normally we won’t reward that, but since it was the first time he’d EVER sat on the potty, we wanted him to see that it was a good thing.
We played for a little while in his big boy undies (on the tile) and then decided to go sit on the potty one more time before bed. He sat down and after about 3 seconds, he started peeing. Jansen and I both freaked out so much that he stopped. He looked at my with the biggest smile on his face (I teared up, no joke) and then he finished.
So many hugs, more M&Ms, and calls to his grandmas happened. It was all SO VERY EXCITING!
For the record, we are still not potty training. I still don’t think he’s ready. He wakes up with massively full diapers in the mornings which makes me think that he doesn’t have enough bladder control. And since I work almost full time, I need him to be really really ready.
Anyways, it was a fun evening here in the house. He did it twice on Sunday too, which just makes me so happy for him. I’m glad he is taking to this on his own.
Sorry for the super “mommyish” post today. I’m sure this is only exciting for about 7 people, but it is something I definitely need documented!
Also, I met my friends’ baby yesterday. He is only 3 days old!! Sadly I still have a nasty cough, so I decided to be a good friend and not hold him. I CAN’T WAIT!!
