Here We Go!

Mischievous T

Well, we are in the full swing of potty-training, so I haven't had a lot of time to do much else. And I'm still recovering from having my nose buried in the Harry Potter book all last week (which was really good, by the way ...) Anyway, the other morning, T said 'potty' and just walked into the bathroom and went. I was stunned! Then I said to myself, "Here we go!" This is definitely a bitter-sweet thing. I'm looking forward to no more diapers, but the actual training is so time consuming. Right now, T thinks he needs to flush everything! ... including about a pound of toilet paper that he conveniently rolled right into the toilet! He's doing really well. He'll walk right up to the toilet and say, "pee-pee, ON!" I can't believe that I soon won't have to buy diapers! I've been buying them since my oldest was born over 11 years ago! Wow. I was getting worried that T wouldn't be potty-trained in time for preschool, which begins late August. Yes, I'm counting the days. I know it will be good for him to have his own little outlet. I know he will just LOVE preschool, especially after he realizes that his buddy, Garrett, will be in the same class. Tonight at dinner, T said that his "happy" for the day was being with his friend, Garrett, in nursery. I'm glad he has such good friends!

I totally understand the pound of TP in the toilet. We have the same problem, except Molly doesn't actually USE the toilet. She just likes the tossing and flushing. Sigh. Congrats on almost being out of diapers!
