A Poo Post- First Thoughts


Potty training's a messy endeavor. There's a lot of naked 'bum'ness and doing one's business becomes the highlight of the day. "YAY! Poo poo in the potty!" I've started to sing this to myself, truthfully.
Life comes full circle: We begin in diapers, we end in diapers and in between those times we just try to excrete with a locked door and a mere five minutes of peace. No one claps for me when I get that...but they should.
Truly the highlight to potty training is teaching our children that there's nothing more rewarding than a 'job' well done...ahem.
But in the transition time between diapers and cloth there's a few other perks as well:
The extra coinage that will jangle in our purses.
The diaper bag being put out to pasture.
The retirement of hogtying and holding down the child as we maneuver wipes with delicate aversion.
Yes my friends, this is a poo post. My daughter is on her way and has been using the potty for the past three days...mostly. So remember, life's not just about what happens to you, it's about what you leave behind.

Just remember to flush it when it's appropriate.

Trust me when I tell you that there is NO comparison when it comes to kid diapers and adults diapers. Just trust me on that. NO COMPARISON.

Poo Poo is still the favorite word at our house. Long story I will have to share with you. Congrats! Stratt is still in pull ups. I am not too worried because like you kindly remind me we end up in diapers when we are mature in years any way. I just hope his wife dosen't mind. Ha Ha! LOL
Glad to see you back my friend! No pressure just lots of fun!!!!

You made my day .... I'm glad you're posting YOUR family memories. You'll be so glad later :) In our house we've been having the discussion why the word "butt" is not as nice as "bum". Then Brighton tells me - but you say but. Figure that one out.

Love this post. I'm jealous, we need to get Parker potty trained but I just don't have the energy for it yet.

I like the 'flush when appropriate' view of life.
Love the new look!
Love that you're back!
Love you!

I love that you said people should clap for you when you get those few blessed minutes in a locked bathroom. I agree! I think we should start clapping for ourselves:)

Donna said...
