Potty Training

Today I caught a whiff of something and asked Sammy, "Do you have poo-poos in your diaper?" He thought for a second, and then said "Yesssssss..." I am hoping that at some point he will realize to ask the question on his own, and then know to come tell me that he needs changed. A couple of times I've caught him squatting and grunting, but every time I ask him "Do you want to go make those poo-poos in the potty?" he tells me "No. In Di-Fur." Hmmmm...

Meanwhile, as I am wetting some wipies to change his diaper, Katie grabs the cup out of the kiddie potty, brings it over to the tub, and starts jabbering non-stop in a semi-frustrated tone. I ask her "Do you need to sit on the potty?" (without missing a beat) "YAH!" (And I think if she had known the word "Duh!" she would have used that instead!) "Well, we need to put the cup back in first." So she hands it to me, I put it back in, and she immediately tries to climb on the potty. "Do you want me to take your diaper off first?" "Yah!" So I do. She sits down. I hold up two books and she grabs the one she wants, opens the cover, and immediately pees in the potty. This is the fourth time in the last 2-3 weeks that she's done that. I don't know about you, but I am just amazed that a 14 month old can realize she needs to pee before it happens, and knows what to do about it!

Sounds like a perfectly normal boy and a perfectly normal girl to me! (Reason 59 out of 753,757,000 that I stare at people who don't believe in in-born gender differences as if they had two heads.)

Thanks! I needed a good smile tonight! ;)

She did it again after her bath tonight, so I know it's for real. She is a pretty motivfated and independent-minded kid, though, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised that this seems so easy with her.
