Potty Training...Awareness

Yes, this is a jump from my 39 weeks post to now, and I will try to be better about posting. It seems each day with my two blessings is filled with hilarious stories that must be written down for posterity and I think this morning's was enough to get me back to blogging.

Eason has been going tee tee on the potty since he was 18 months, when he asked me if he could tee tee on the potty. But it has only been recently that we have undertaken full-fledged potty training. I am learning that most 3 year old kindergartens won't take a child unless they are potty-trained, and since we hope to enroll Eason for next year, we have some work to do. We have set aside the pull-ups and are in "big boy pants." For the most part, Eason is doing well, with some mishaps from time to time. His Grandmomma is also helping in this adventure.
Whenever I remind him that we need to go pee pee or poopy on the potty, he is quick to correct me and say "in the potty."
This morning, as Eason was stepping down off of the potty, he announced to me, "Mommy, I have a penis." (Before today, Eason had referred to his penis as his peeny)

"Yes, baby you do have a penis."
"Mommy, do you have a penis?"
"No, baby, Mommy is a girl and girl's don't have penises."
"Mommy, does Daddy have a penis?"
"Yes, baby Daddy has a penis."

Then he proceeded to ask the above question about each of his grandparents, Grandmomma, Granddaddy, La La, Granddaddy Ed, Nee Nee, Mark. And finally said, "is that all the people?"
I certainly hope so.

On this same thought, Eason enjoys praying and has one rather unintelligable prayer that he repeats both for meal time blessings and prayers before bedtime. Then Daddy or I follow up with another prayer. Sometimes though, Eason gets filled with a thankful spirit and begins to thank God for many things like closets, walls, doors, windows, etc. It is super sweet to hear him be so thankful. Last Sunday night we were praying as a family, thanking God for dinner. While Warren was praying Eason piped up loudly and prayed, "and God, thank you for my peeny going pee pee in the potty!"

Both Warren and my eyes opened wide and it was all we could do to not bust out laughing. It was awesome! I love that kid!

Oh, I'm sooo happy to see that you're posting again! This story is too funny - as are all Eason stories! I'm sure Miss Evie will keep us in stitches as well!
