Poo-poo in the potty

There were loud rejoicings at our house a few weeks ago: the Monkey went poo-poo im the potty. Seeing that faraway look in his eye, I prompted him to go to the potty for his bowel movement -- instead of concluding bathtime in a particularly unwelcome way. The timing was right, the location was right, and the result was long hoped for. Rejoicings!

Some days later, he communicated to the Monkey Mama not only his desire to go poo-poo, but to go poo-poo in the potty! This was even better: cognition and communication to go along with elimination. A very good day indeed.

Of course, we're not batting 1.000 -- nor do we expect to be, not for another year or for however long it takes. No pressure, Monkey Man!

Scoring a point for each respective parent depending on whose hand he is holding at the moment of elimination, I am currently leading the Monkey Mama 2 to 1 (with one tie).

But who's keeping score anyway?
