And To All A Good Night

Dear Santa,

My greatest dream has been realized. Jewelry, perfume, books, sweaters, or fancy hand creams would now be only a side note when compared to the Christmas miracle you delivered to our house this evening... My daughter caved to my coaching, cajoling, and outright bribery, and, after much fussing and begging for a diaper and whining that her tummy hurt, begrudgingly pooped on the potty.

I have never in my life felt so excited about another person's bowel movement. I have never felt so excited about MY OWN bowel movement. I nearly cried. I gushed, "I'm so proud of you!" so many times that Adelay finally gave me a consoling, somewhat worried hug and replied, "I'm proud of you, too, Mommy!"

Suuuuweeeet! That is great! Go Addy. But who am I kidding? GO SARAH!

We are doing decent with potty training right now. Actually it's been a really good week for pees and poops on the potty for Zachariah. It is VERY exciting!

That is so great! I know how nasty those diapers are when kids are that age! Yay and Merry Christmas.
