The Sun is Shining and There is Poop in the Potty!!!

This is the face of a boy who finally pooped in the potty! After an epic two hours spent on the potty, we are making good on all the bribes we conjured up to get him to deposit in the correct location. This is the first of many surprises today. A small bowl full of peanut M&Ms. It will be followed with a burger, a trip to the park, a balloon and a cookie. ALL worth it if it means no longer cleaning up poop from his waist to his toes along with spraying out a pair of undies and/or pants and scrubbing a trail from his pooping hide-out to the bathtub. Lucky for us, the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day to have a big, huge poop party!!!! Not exactly something that I'd imagined when I became a mom, but none-the-less, here we are embarking on this special celebration.

GOOD JOB, LAWSON! You are getting to be such a big boy and we are sooooo proud of you!


  1. WTG Lawson! He's doing so much better than marcus!

  2. Poop in the potty is such a big deal! I remember how frustrating dealing with it everywhere else can be too! :) Thanks so much for your sweet comment, to answer your question, I think it has A LOT to do with the fact that Carter is 4...she is such a huge help and pretty darn self sufficient!

  3. I'm hoping that's an m&m in his hand and not... well you know:) I did not like potty training but it is sooo nice once they can handle that stuff on their own! I haven't had to use a diaper in 13 months now and you can tell by my knowing exactly how long it's been how nice it is!
