A Poo Poo Party!

When you are a mother, you are amazed at the things that become so important-such as bowel movements! Not a subject you are used to discussing! With a newborn, you have to count the number to ensure adequate nutrition. As an infant and toddler you make sure they are regular and the child is not constipated. Once you experience rota virus, you check to make sure it looks "normal"-whatever that means. And then you potty train. In our case the pee peeing went pretty smoothly and the pooping did for about 2 weeks. Then anxiety set in. Well I will save the details, but lets just say we have experienced the slamming doors and getting quiet, the disappearing into the closet, the hiding in the ceiling fan boxes in Lowe's, and the nice "stick" in the floor! But yesterday...the poop went into the potty! Addison got a treat out of the poo poo sack that has been trying to persuade the poop into the potty for weeks and then we had a poo poo party! Grant was at the new house, so I made chicken salad, packed a picnic, and stopped and bought cookies, Cheetos, and a balloon. We took it to the house so daddy could celebrate with us! It was a great poo poo party picnic!

Please remember this blog is also serving as my online scrapbook since I don't have time for scrapbooking anymore! I had to post this exciting event in our lives!

Today as I was thinking about yesterday's events I was just amazed at what a big girl Addison is becoming! (And yes-she pooped in the potty again today!:))I love having conversations with her! Today was a perfect example...

We were driving in the car and she put something in her mouth...

Me "Don't put that in your mouth. It is dirty!"

Add "Yeah, its gross" (gross-when did she learn that word)

Add "Look mom! It's nastics!" (we passed the road that we turn down to go to gymnastics)

Me "I see!"

Add "I like nastics! I wear my leotard to nastics! It's fun!"

Time with her is priceless!
