Potty Training

C has been potty training since he wanted us to put him on the potty at 16 months.  But he would only go sporadically and definitely still needed to wear a diaper.  Well... that all changed about two weeks ago.  We decided to start really potty training and he is doing great!  He wears his big boy undies to school but I usually put a pull up on him when I pick him up.  I don't want him to have an accident in the car seat or at the grocery store.  He typically has 1-2 accidents per day which isn't too bad! He can pull down his pants, climb up on the potty, do his business, attempt to wipe, climb off the potty, pull his pants up, flush and wash his hands all by himself.  He's so independent!  He's also smart... a little too smart.  Since he knows how to do all of this he will sometimes tell us he has gone so he can get a gummy bear.  He is so adamant that he did go but I'm not so sure.

He also knows how to make me putty in his hands.  Tonight, he was fighting going to bed so I told him if he didn't lay down and go to sleep that I was going to leave him to go night-night by himself.  He didn't lay down so I left him in his room and you would have thought that he was never going to see me again.  He cried and cried.  So I told him to go lay down and I would come back into his room.  We laid there in silence and I thought he was almost asleep.  Then I heard a quiet, little voice say, "Don't leave me Mommy, ok?  Deal?"  Putty.  So I kissed him and said I would never leave, leave.  I might be gone for a little while but I always come back.  He was quiet for a little while and then he said, "Mommy?  Hold me." Putty.  He knows what he's doing. 

How can you deny this face??

Showing off his baklava.  He loves it!

Yesterday I surprised John with a stay-cation.  I asked my parents to pick C up from school and then he stayed the night with them.  John and I went for a hike, went out to lunch, did some shopping, and then had a lovely dinner.  Then I slept until 7:30!  Ahhhh!  We had a great time but I missed C.  It was the longest I had ever been away from him... 30 hours.
