A Celebration! (no photos please)

Last night our family was
and high-fiving.

We danced jigs,
sang Alleluia!,
and made some excited phone calls
to three different states.

We celebrated.

All because our little one finally did his er... uhm... "business" in the big potty chair.

Alleluia!! Really.

We'll be setting off fireworks when I finally get the littlest one out of diapers. You'll hear the celebration all the way down there.

We are trying to start that with our toddler too. I actually had him all but trained and then he (and I) got a little distracted and lost interest. duh!

Lisa said...

Wahoo!! We feel your joy! Our three year old is just potty trained! Hallelujah! One down, one to go here!

Karen said...

Yeah! Good for you! We're still in diapers, after 13 years. And waiting for that moment.

Karen said...

Okay, that didn't sound good. I mean that I've been changing diapers for 13 years, not that the 13 year old is wearing diapers.

Will you please, take a look in the post I translated for Familia en Costrucción?

I hope you find it ok.

Hey, Bia, have you already done the 7 Random Things Meme? &;o) If you haven't, and you want to, I just tagged you for it.

I love your blog. It takes me right back to when my kids were little. I had one who had no interest, zero, even at three in the big potty. We were having conversations with everyone..the postman, the dentist, you know.... Doctor Hal poops in the big ot too...for months.
This is a big moment

Holly said...

Woo hoo! Those are good days.

When you get a chance, I have something for you on my blog...

Kathryn said...

YEah, yippee!!! I sooo understand the glee!

I'm a little ahead of you all (been there, done that) but I remember the excitement. Here is my tip. Get the book: "Everybody Poops"; Great illustrations and gets the idea across in a way I never could. Just keep it from the older ones in the family, they maybe a little grossed out.

Ahhh, I remember those days!! My youngest is 8 now. BTW -- You have been tagged! Go to Catholic Notebook and read the Meme Game post from March 31, 2008. (This one is quick, painless and fun!)

Ahh, but are you sure this will last? I do hope so, for your sake. My MS has used the big boy seat twice, used to ask for a diaper, has lately taken to using the big boy pants, which has meant a regression to pull-ups (groan). At least I know he won't go to MS in diapers.

My ES used to have to remove all of his clothes to do that business (don't ask me why). We would always tease him about how funny it will look when he gets to school and continues this trend. I only recently asked him if he still does this and he looked at me like I was making up some kind of weird artificial memories. I swear he must have done this at home until he was 8 or 9!

Anxious to see son #3's approach!
