yiPEE

It's party potty time! For quite a few months now, Lily has been asking to use the potty. We go through this big production, setting her on the pot and talking about it lots. She loves being up there and playing with the toilet paper. We listen very close. She does a lot of wiping, but do date she has never actually "gone" on there.

Today though, was quite different. We heard tinkling! I just about peed my own pants at the sound of it. There were high fives and she gave me a fist bump (which she is very fond of these days). She laughed and laughed knowing exactly what she'd done. We listened again and guess what? More tinkling! She's got the on-off switch on the plumbing figured out. I am SO proud of my big girl right now, I can hardly stand it.

Isn't it ridiculous how happy a little one going potty can make you? Something only a parent (who's changed THOUSANDS of diapers) can truly appreciate!!

Yay Lil! I imagine the next step is more complicated.
