T.M.I. alert!

Warning bloggers. Continue reading this post if and only if you are truly invested in the daily/messy happenings of our life. What I'm about to share is something that perhaps only those who are parents can truly understand or share in my excitement. I'm documenting this for the sole purpose of remembering when it happened, because my memory is worse than my cooking.

(I hope you're not cooking.)

(And I really hope Chica doesn't kill me someday for over sharing.)

On Wednesday, November 18, 2009 Reesie went on the Big Girl Potty for the very first time. She told me she needed to go, I raced her into the bathroom, wrestled her clothes off and put her on the toilet, just in the nick of time. We barely made it, and I'm praising the good Lord we did. Girlfriend had two M&Ms to celebrate her accomplishment.

I know this is just the beginning of what's to come in the realm of all things potty related, but we're SO proud of her! Hope this post didn't leave you feeling queasy. I promise I'll get something new up by Monday so you don't have to look at this for long.

GO Reesie!!


  1. I teach 2-year-olds in Sunday School, so most of the kids in my class are potty training. We sing a song everytime one of them goes in the potty... and now when I or my co-teacher have to run to the bathroom, when we get back they all sing for us! "Ms. Grace is a big girl, she pee-pees in the potty!" I'd be happy to teach you the tune over the holidays when you guys are in town! ;)

  2. OH what a great accomplishment! Really its so exciting!!
