The happiest Mama ever. Ever, I tell you. EVER.

You know it is going to be a good day when your son is still asleep at almost 9am. And you know it is going to be a great day when you just came off FOUR DAYS IN A ROW OF SOMEONE UNDER AGE FOUR GOING POO ON THE POTTY.

Yes, folks, I have high hopes for this day. High, high hopes. And let's just throw in the fact that it is supposed to be under 100 degrees outside today! What was I saying about high hopes again? Oh yes, high, high, HIGH hopes!

*2 hours later: It seems we have a pooping machine on our hands. We went from a three-year-old refusing to poo anywhere but his naptime or bedtime diaper, to a full-fledged poo-on-the-potty fanatic!!! He is now comfortably settled into his favorite chair, watching his beloved Polar Express movie (who cares if it is August), his poo-poo prize movie of choice for today.

So this marks day #5 of success. Of course, at some point, I'll have to figure out how to wean him off the movies as daily poo-poo prizes, but for now, I am simply going to enjoy this. After five long months of pottytraining, a little movie once a day won't hurt anyone.

I'm so glad the toilet training is going fine. Don't worry about weaning him off - after a while you'll forget what it was like when he was wearing diapers!! By the way, thanks for the huge compliment regarding my summer quilt. And right back at you. Your stunning quilt is by far my favourite - the colours and design are simply beautiful. Love the swim suit and the waves and the quilting - all of it really.

My daughter was "pee-trained" for over a YEAR before she would poop on the potty. We bribed her with everything we could think of. I knew she would only have to do it once on the potty to become a convert. Finally at the age of 3 1/2 she made the switch. That seems like so long ago but it was almost exactly one year ago...
