You know you’re a mom when you get excited hearing for the first time, ‘Mommy, I have to go potty!’
My eyes got wide and I smiled the biggest smile and said, “Yay! Let’s go potty!”
We run to the bathroom where she pulled her pants down and sits on the potty. I sit on the tub a few feet away, looking off into space, giving her privacy.
A few minutes passes and she decides to stand and pull her pants up. False alarm.
“It’s okay baby,” I tell her. “We’ll try again in a few minutes.” We calmly walk back into the kitchen where I continued preparing breakfast. Pancakes.
This continued several times through out the day. Still no success, but we still continue to try.
