N PEE PEED IN THE POTTY!
You heard me right. Actual pee pee in an actual potty! A FESTIVUS MIRACLE!
Not that we're potty training. Not officially. I mean, we let them watch us go pee pee. And we let them sit on the potties before and after baths, when they're already naked so it's not actually work. And it happened! We made a big deal, jumped up and down, stopped short of taking a picture (although I did announce it on Facebook and entered it in his baby book) and all four of us celebrated in the bathroom. Then I wiped it up.
Now what? I've been thinking about it all day. He hasn't even looked at the potty today and I don't care to make it official. We'll see how it goes.
Last night I bought fish nuggets in an attempt to broaden my sons' menu. Bear with me. They will eat most standard toddler fare, but very little grown up food. We've offered them fish from our plates several times, to no avail. It occurred to me that fish that LOOKS like chicken nuggets might work as an entry gate. Also, they will at least taste something I let them help me cook. So they helped me make tartar sauce, including chopping the pickles they refuse to eat.
THEY ATE FISH NUGGETS AND TARTAR SAUCE FOR LUNCH!
Another Festivus Miracle! We're on a roll today, because they were rubbing their eyes and didn't make a peep when I put them down for a nap.
So far, it's a good day. No freak outs or meltdowns - just a couple of Festivus Miracles!
