Potty Time!

I know this is probably not an exciting post for most of you all. But it was an exciting night in our house last night! Carter was in my bathtub taking a bath (which is usually only a weekend ritual). He made his "gotta go" face and I said "Carter do you need to use the potty?" In his polite little voice, he replied "No tanks". But I knew better. And I knew I didn't want to have to clean poop out of MY tub! So I rushed him to his own bathroom and put him on his own potty. I gave him his Elmo potty book that he can only use while on the potty (thanks Kim for that advice!). And a minute later, he had successfully used the potty (number one and two!) Woohoooo! We made a big to do over this. Now my only concern is that I'll have to give him a sucker everytime he uses the toilet. His teeth will have rotted out but at least he'll be potty-trained! I don't plan on really pursuing the whole potty-training until I can work part-time or not at all but last night is at least a start. Sorry, no pictures to post with this one. I do have some cute pictures of him in my bathtub but I haven't uploaded them yet. Stay tuned. Hope you all are doing well.
