Maybe my blog should be called "Potty Training Diaries"

Yes, I know, "this too shall pass" -
Only to begin again in one year with Henderson!

We had a very successful weekend with potty training with Wilson. He did a poo-poo in the potty 3 TIMES!!!!!! Do you know how happy this made me? I danced around and sang like a crazy lady and Wilson just sat there and smiled with the biggest grin on his face - he was SO proud of himself!

He did have one teeny tiny accident at Will's parents house last night, but they were playing outside and I know that tends to be where a lot of accidents take place - it's definitely worth it to him to be dirty and keep on playing!

Hopefully this will be a good week as far as potty training goes. I know it will be a busy one for me - we go back to the doctor tomorrow for Henderson's re-check and labs, so keep us in your prayers!

It was a great weekend! The TIDE won a basketball game - in double overtime - ROLL TIDE!! And then we had a fun time Saturday night at a Sunday School campfire/potluck at Thad and Melissa's house- I'll post soon with those pictures!

Yesterday we celebrated my Brother-in-law, Stan's b'day and my b'day at Will's parents house - the food was wonderful and the children played outside nearly the entire time, despite the frigid temperatures. Then we put all 7 children in the whirlpool bath - that's alot of youngins in 1 bath tub - but they all loved it. After we got the babies out, the older ones turned on the jets and laughed like I've never heard them laugh before. It did my heart good! Wilson was the last one out of the tub and once all the others cleared out I noticed a brown blob in the bottom of the tub - I started laughing hysterically, mostly out of disgust. I just KNEW it was poo-poo and that every child was going to have to be re-showered. I couldn't bring myself to touch it, but Emma Claire (who's not afraid of anything) did and it turned out to be the head of a Barenstein Bear doll - Will's mom and Ellen and I shared a big laugh!

Has anyone ever heard that laughing is good for the soul? I agree wholeheartedly!

Laugh a little (or a lot) today!

What a funny story! Harris has been our first to bath tub poop, but apparently it is the thing to do! ha!
Found you and will change my link on the side of my page.
I'm going to be moving soon, too, and I think I might have started the craze, but everyone is faster than I am! Hugs from our potty to yours!

If it helps, D. is playing in his poop too. YUCK! Not just here, but at childcare, at my mom's, anywhere. I am going to start potty training too. But I can say after 2 other boys, I know he's not ready. I just have to try so I don't feel like I am completing dropping the ball. LOL!

Hilarious! I'm laughing with ya.

We've had the dreaded brown blob in the tub happen before too, but it wasn't a bear head. Too Bad!

If we ever have another child and that happens again. I'll think of you as I'm uttering to myself, "please be a bear head, please be a bear head!"

I hope you have a wonderful Birthday!
