potty pants

Can you see the brown footprints in the picture above?

O.K. well we are not really "training" Suzanna, but a couple of times a day I will put her on her little potty and she goes. Usually guano (Donovan's word). I see that look in her eye and her position, and well it's like.....Hmmmm do I want to let her go in her diaper and later scrape that off her bottom or just sit her on the potty? So I've been sitting her on the potty and she will do it. I probably should go full speed ahead with the potty training since she shows an interest. But the thought of being in a public place (for instance Wal-mart) and needed to find a potty within 5 seconds doesn't appeal to me right now. Call me lazy I know. And Christmas get togethers....I mean I had kids so I can be at the front of the food line, and I'm afraid if I'm in the bathroom with potty pants I'm going to lose out on all the good stuff. And the fact that I am having surgery next week, kinda puts the damper on the subject too. On with the real story....SO last night I sat her on the potty, because mothers intuition kicked in and I thought she had to go. So I sat her on and she didn't. Strange, but o.k. So I told Suzy to go find her daddy and get a diaper. Usually she will go to him and he diapers her. Well I lost track of her, didn't follow through and Donovan and I were talking in the kitchen. In walks Suzy with no diaper, but a trail of guano following behind. It also is on her hands, arms and legs. Donovan is panicked (I should've been but was too busy laughing.) We follow the brown trail and find that she had went into the bathroom (hence the brown footprints) sat on the potty and did a number in the potty. A small victory for the little one year old. She knew she had to go and went to the potty. Too bad she also went on the carpet in 4 different places. Seriously it was all over. Of course I couldn't get a very good picture, because panic dad was cleaning her up so fast. Given the chance I was home by myself I would not have been taking pictures but cleaning up. Just so you know. But come on I'm still kinda sick, not too sick to take pictures..just too sick to clean up guano.

OK, Heather~you are the best! Just when I need a smile you manage to not only make me smile but laugh! That story is just too cute! Good for Suzy~at least she seemed to be trying! Sounds like she might just potty train herself. Rosetta

What a smart girl, that little Suzy! And a funny one too. Just think, Heather, after she's trained, you will officially be done with diapers! (Awwwwwwwww!)

And Joyce, It's hard to imagine the day when we won't change a diaper isn't it???
