Yep, my child had her first pee on the potty. I am fighting the urge to smack my face while typing this post because I swore I’d never be one of those moms – the moms who share every single detail of their child’s life, even the embarrassing ones that may eventually come back to haunt them.
So, here I am, doing that very thing. Oh well, hopefully Anna won’t hate me for it one day.
Anyway, we’ve noticed that Anna has been showing some interest in using the bathroom outside of a plastic clump of landfill (aka a diaper). I know it’s not even worth it to press the issue if she’s not ready, so we’re going to take it slowly.
My mom and I were at Target this past weekend, and she bought Anna’s first toilet. It looks like this:
Disclaimer: That’s not Anna. We also don’t use that kind of toilet paper.
So, it’s a cute toilet. It has turtles on it. Who doesn’t love turtles?
Anna has adapted to the toilet fairly quickly. She loves sitting on it and putting toilet paper in it. She didn’t quite grasp the concept of what to actually put into it until tonight (8-11 – this will post on 8-12).
After sitting on the toilet for at least 5 minutes, she finally did the deed, and we seriously couldn’t be prouder of her.
Granted, this is just the beginning of a long process, I’m sure, but it’s truly amazing how excited two parents can get over pee. You would’ve thought Anna walked up to us with the winning Powerball ticket by our reaction.
Maybe it was overkill. It probably was. Gee, that’s so unlike us.
