I have to say hands down the best thing about being a Mom is watching that light turn on. That very instant when your sweet one "gets it". I love it, I'd have to say it is the highlight of my world. Knowing that my little ones are growing emotionally, physically and scholastically.
So the time has finally arrived after a long long period of working at this. I can truly say Johnpaul is POTTY TRAINED!!!!! It's been a long road for this guy. He almost had it when he was turning two but a wrench got thrown into it by his brother's arrival. We learned the very hard way potty training during the time of an expected brother or sister NOT good. It erased everything we did. Today I got total evidence we are all done. That we are allowed to spike the ball and do that long desired Touch Down Dance!!!
While changing the baby Johnpaul came up noticed that Christian had pooped and said "Mommy that baby should put that in the potty, it stinks!"
I laughed so hard then realized what that meant. Not only is he going through the emotions of doing the task of going to the potty but he emotionally has grasped it. This is now what he does. Just as all the other hurtles before Johnpaul is growing up. He's no longer my baby or really little boy he's becoming a big boy! Hurray Johnpaul!!
