everyone poops

My cousin gave my boys the book Everyone Poops hoping it would inspire them to become potty trained. It's a really graphic book, so of course my kids love it. It's slightly disturbing, but I guess I have to get use to that with two boys.

It worked and my big boy Ethan now is potty trained! It's true what they say... "when they are ready, they are ready". We had tried sticker charts, rewards, new undies and running around the house naked, and nothing had worked. Then one morning Eric decided to put underwear on Ethan and for some reason, it clicked. After one week of no pooping in the potty, he finally started to do it. Let's just say I did lots of laundry that week. After he did it once though, he did it almost every time. He now runs to the bathroom all by himself and calls me if he needs any help. Who would have thought pooping in the potty could make a mommy so proud?

I'm not sure if I should say, "How sweet!" or "Yuck!"
