Today, was an encouraging day.
I read a little something that encouraged me in my decision to go the route of traditional [early] potty training.
Not that I was planning on changing my mind. But more so that I no longer feeling that I need to be embarrassed by it.
Or that it is "weird" or "crazy".
I mean, I'm not the one that is unusual. Early potty training is the global and historical norm.
So anyway, it was nice to get a little encouragement and affirmation.
Encouraging thing number two:
Damien went in the potty four times today.
He pooped once, and all the other times I put him on the potty (three) he peed in it as soon as I set him down. Even though I wasn't trying to catch his pees.
So it would appear that he definitely gets what it's for. And has at least some control over his elimination functions.
Encouraging thing number three:
I read to Damien from the Bible today for the first time in quite a while.
And it made him stop fussing.
Mr. wiggle worm himself relaxed on my lap listening to me read the Psalms.
And it just made me smile.
On a side note, I got flowers. From a ship. And a text message.
It's the little things.
Damien is 3 months, 3 weeks old (16 weeks)
