1. Today Ellie announced, "Miss Vanessa [the preschool teacher] says my poop is stinky." Those preschool teachers sure know their stuff.
2. Early in the potty training Ellie, watching TV as a reward for something, started doing the "poop dance." We reminded her to go to the toilet, at which point she ran to the bathroom, ran back and screeched "PAUSE IT!" at the TV, and then ran back to the bathroom. I'm glad she has her priorities right.
3. When she's successful, she calls out "I did it! I DID IT!" Whenever I'm successful in the bathroom, she yells (from wherever she happens to be) "GOOD JOB, DADDY!" I hope I have that kind of encouragement in 40 years.
