YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME???

I just witnessed something great in my little world. For those of you who hated me when Ellie potty trained herself...well.... get ready to hate me again. ;0) Many of you know that Ellie started potty training herself around 18 months. I never tried to train her, one day I just found her naked on the potty and she was going- and well, she kept it up and pretty much trained herself- I actually wasn't ready for her to be trained when she started doing it. Well, I most definitely did not think that would happen again. And as I write this I am probably getting ahead of myself by thinking Hadley will train herself, but I can say what I just saw made me awfully hopeful.
I was doing some target shopping today when I saw this cute little froggie potty. I haven't started potty training Hadley yet, she is only 18 months. But I though, heck- why not get a new potty and just put it out. She really liked the froggie potty when I showed her so it made it's way into my cart along with other things that weren't on the list- but that's another story and how target shopping goes, right? So, I run errands all day and forgot about it. Tonight I brought it out of the car, opened it, and put it on the kitchen floor. I was debating if I was going to keep it or not so wanted to check it out and take it out of it's packaging. (I know some of you are laughing because I tend to buy and return a lot). I thought it was cute and put it on the floor. Well, we woke Hadley up around 6pm for dinner and Frank casually pointed it out to her and said, "pooh-pooh and pee-pee." She just looked at him and went on to eat her dinner. We had all finished dinner and she says, "pooh-pooh" and points at the potty. We laughed and then Frank thought she wanted on the potty. I thought she was just repeating what he had said earlier, like telling us, "that's where you pooh-pooh." But Frank took her diaper off and put her on and low and behold- WE HAD POOP in the potty. Seriously?!? I was shocked, Frank was shocked. I started singing a poop song I used to sing to Gavin and she started dancing. Then she points at her poop and says, "Poop, YUCKY!" It was pretty funny. I am hoping and praying that I will have another child that decides she wants to potty on the potty without me having to help a whole lot. Ahhh...that would be dreamy!! For now, we have one poop down!! Woo-hoo!! Way to go my little Momma!!

That is AMAZING! I can't believe it. I hope she keeps it up for you. Maybe she can talk to Presley and give her some tips?

Reagan did something very similar, and can go weeks at a time, totally trained with no accidents. But, only when she wants to. Other times, I might as well put her back in diapers. She is my little strong-willed girl and I think she knows she has the control on this one!!! Makes my laugh and makes me crazy....all at the same time.
