I knew something was up when we got home from school and Ace said "Wanna take a nap?" While he always takes a nap, he sure hates going to bed. I mean hates it. Fights me every time for naps. I knew something was up.
You see, he's gotten real private around poopoo time. He will tell me to "go away right now!" or otherwise shoo all those around him. A few days ago, I told him "dude, I'm on to your game here. Let's go poopoo on the potty." And he sat, and sat, and sat. I got him up, thanked him for trying, and put a diaper on him, which he promptly filled within minutes.
"Wanna take a nap?"
"Hmmm, either you're sick or you're about to poop. Wanna poopoo on the potty?"
"No, wanna nap."
"Yeah, not doing it. Let's go sit on the potty."
So on the potty we go. "Wanna mama leave?" "Okay, I'll go." "Wanna mama get the book?" "Okay, honey, I'll get you a book."
A few minutes pass while I stand in the hallway.
"See da bunny rabbit? See da tail? Da bunny rabbit is pink. ... unh... Where's da bunny rabbit? Wherrrunh did it go? ... Poopoo? Poopoo onna potty? Did you go poopoo?"
Just as I was about to go in, he flushed the toilet. MY BABY POOPED ON THE POTTY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND FLUSHED AWAY MY PHOTO OP. But, the evidence was in the air (and on his butt) so MY BABY POOPED IN THE POTTY FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!
