Let's Have a Potty

For the past month, Gracie has been showing some signs of potty awareness as I will politely put it. Whenever she does the do which rhymes with shoe, she will tell whoever is in the room to go. Even if you peek around the corner and she spots you, she says "no, go" and points with her finger. We thought it was cute and funny and hey, I can understand that the kid needs privacy so I figured it was time that I bought her a little potty.

I explained to Gracie, the best that you can to a newly turned two year old that when she had to go, let mommy know. I figured she probably wouldn't get it until she was a little older as she isn't really showing any interest but while she sat on my lap last Saturday night, she quickly jumped down and ran out of the room. Okay, so I wasn't sure what it was about but figured she had a toy she was dying to play with. All of a sudden, I hear her little feet running back into the room, along with a clunk, clunk, clunk. I turned around and Gracie was carrying her potty that she had retrieved from the bathroom and said to me, pee, pee.

I was so stunned and trying to stifle my laughter because here was my daughter, with a lollypop in her mouth carrying this potty. I quickly whipped off her jeans which was not an easy feat and stripped her of her diaper, only to find that she had just gone. I sat Gracie on the potty anyway and clapped and hooted and hollered for her that you would have thought that I had just won a million dollars.

Gracie looked so cute that I ended up taking some pictures of her, sucker and all! Now if I could only get Jerry trained. :) J/K

I just love the potty and the sucker-- too cute!! Mia has been showing awareness sighns as well and I am thinking I may do the potty thing as well. She for sure tells me when she poops but the pee thing is not yet there. I have put her on the potty (big one) a few times but no luck having her go yet. Great that Gracie is getting close.

Not sure about Tuesday-- I may now have a funeral for my great aunt to go to but I will let you know. Lets for sure do the following tuesday.
