Potty Training Day 1! (Attempt #3)

I just had to take a second and cheer for my sweet Conner. Apparently he and my mom had a little chat the other day about how he's a big three year old now and he needs to go potty like a big boy, etc., etc. I'm not getting my hopes up too high, but it seems that this may have been the motivation we've been waiting for. He woke up this morning and I asked him if he wanted to wear big boy underwear...he said "Yes, and I'm gonna stay dry." And belive it or not, he DID! ALL DAY LONG! I even sent him outside this morning, knowing that in the past, this has been his pooping place while potty training. I told him that if he felt the poo poo starting to come, to run and get me. He had been outside about 10 mins, when he came in and said..."Mommy, the poo poo is comin' out!" So we ran to the potty, he asked me to leave and made a grand deposit in the potty! Not only that, but he flushed all by himself. (I didn't need to see the evidence, the lovely oder gave it away!) He went on to pee all day, and even stayed dry for naptime! We went over to my moms and while playing he ran to me and said, "Mommy, I need to go pee pee!" This is a huge step in the right direction! So, all my bloggy friends, please pray that this time it will stick and I will finally have only one child in diapers!! If someone had told me that someday, I would be beside myself excited about bodily fuctions from a 3 year old, I would have thought...Lord, I hope not, that would make for one pathedic life...but oh the joy I have found from a little pee and a little poop! Not to mention, there is nothing more pathedic I would rather do than devote my life to these precious boys...poop and all!
