Wow, this really is a day of firsts

Do you notice anything here?


Yes, there FINALLY is a second sticker on Anthony’s potty training chart, marking the first time he has used the potty for me (the first sticker is from a time he allegedly went at preschool, which Jerry and I doubt ever happened).  This morning’s event is huge for several reasons:

  • Anthony is supposed to be potty-trained when he goes back to preschool on August 31 – or at least seriously trying.
  • My little man has been so resistant to potty training that he once told me that he hated me for making him sit on the potty. I didn’t even know he knew the word “hate.”
  • Now that he’s done it once and realizes that he’s not going to fall into the potty (the excuse he kept giving me), maybe both of us can stop stressing so much over the whole process.

Really, it was a priceless experience, watching Ant’s face widen in amazment and hearing him exclaim, “Mommy, the pee-pee is coming out of my penis!”

Let’s just hope it continues to flow.



  1. Wishing you and Anthony much luck!!
