wonder of wonders! miracle of miracles!



Ruby decided she wanted to be a "big girl" today and try out the big girl potty. During lunch she announced "poop mommy!". Consequently, I quickly unbuckled her, helped her down, and - hand in hand - we ran to the bathroom. I helped her take down her pants, remove her diaper, and positioned her atop the royal throne...nothing stopping her from doing her duty. Well, that's exactly what she did; and as her mother, I couldn't have been more proud!

If she trains as easy as her mommy did (and it sounds like she's going to), it'll be a breeze! :-) BTW, Granpa's proud, too!

Would I sound like a baby if I were to stomp my feet and scream "IT'S NOT FAIR?!!!"
No, I'm really excited (and a little jealous) for you two! She is just the cutest turkey!
