A certain buddy of mine uses the potty these days!!!!! 

After being at this parenting thing for six years, I finally have a child who can dispose of his bodily fluids and waste in a civilized manner. I thought I had "arrived" when we had our own washer and dryer back in the day, but no--I see now that arriving means that all bodily waste in your household goes into the toilet. I see why it is called "The Throne"---there is nothing more royal.

This little guy is my buddy and I am madly in love with him. It blows me away to see him learning new concepts, responding to discipline, gaining new skills, and becoming more and more independent. He sleeps in a big boy bed these days and has quiet time in his room. He's not perfect, but he's SO MUCH FUN. 

I can't wait to see what the coming years bring. Rock on, potty boy!!

(I didn't use his name once).


  1. Congratulations little man!!!

    Life is good. (my hubby prefers kids that poop in the pot as he says... not much into diapers at all)


  2. Awesome! Way to go, Peter!

  3. Way to go!!! Rock on "potty-boy".!!!

  4. That's a big milestone! They grow up SO fast, it's just unbelievable, you blink and years have gone by.

  5. Yeah! My husband and I were just talking the other day about how one of the painful things about loosing your oldest at a young age (or any age probably) is that you feel like your life goes backwards. I know I often felt "stuck" at a certain phase of life because I "should" have been moving on, but I wasn't. It is a bitter/sweet moment when you finally realize life is moving forward and you are and will experience new things with your kids!
