I couldn't decide between this post title or... You Might Be A Redneck If... here is why...
We have been working on potty training this little funny man for a little while. Not anything too serious... mommy has not been as consistent as I should be. We switched to only Pull ups recently so this has helped a lot with mommy's issues.
Well... we had a big day today! Carver went poop in the potty today. This is where I explain Crap Hiney!
Carver has gone pee pee in the potty a lot but today was the first poop action the potty has seen (well... at least from Carver). After breakfast, Carver had gone to his room, which is always a sign he is pooping, so I ran in to see what he was doing. Sure enough he was in his closet with the door shut. This means he is definitely pooping. I opened the door and was greeted with a red face asking me to "go back in there mommy". Like any man (or woman I guess) Carver likes his privacy to do his business.
I scooped him up and we ran to the toilet. After Carver saw me drop the little bit of poop he had already 'made' in the toilet, I guess he figured it would be okay to try and let the rest of it go in the toilet!! Hooray... We celebrated... We watched the poop go down as Carver flushed the toilet. I was so excited!
While we were washing our hands, Carver asked if he could see his hiney. I picked him up so he could look in the mirror. Carver pointed to his crack and asked, "What's that mommy?", to which I responded, "that's your crack" ! :) Turns out Carver was interested in where his poop had come from. Anyway.... a minute or so later, in the thrill of the moment (still celebrating the big event), Carver said, "I poop out my crap hiney!". Carver has been saying crap hiney all day!! I have corrected him a few times but it is just too cute! Crap Hiney... he is so funny!
Now... on to the You Might Be A Redneck If.
I took Carver, after breakfast, up to our church parking lot so he could ride his tricycle. We don't have a flat yard or driveway and people drive way too fast in our neighborhood so... we have to go somewhere else to ride the tricycle outside. Anyway...
When we were loading up to come back home, Carver announced that he had to go pee pee! Well... this was the first time I think he has actually told me. We were too far away from the church building and the back doors were locked anyway so I just stripped him down and let him pee outside.
As you can guess.... HE LOVED IT! Carver has gone pee pee outside 3 times today! The first time, at church, no one was around so it really wasn't a big deal. After we got home, however, the easiest place to take him outside is just right in our front yard so ... two times today anyone driving by our house got a view of a totally naked little boy peeing right in the front yard. Like any good mommy... I took pictures but would be afraid of being arrested on child porn charges if I posted them! :)
The last time he did it, Michael was home and went outside with us. Michael was the one who said that we looked so redneck! :) Hey... we do live in TN, right? That is what most people think anyway so why not live up to it! :) I don't really care. I am just thrilled he is telling me when he has to go potty. This is a breakthrough people!!
Wow... sorry this is so long! Thanks for hanging in there if you have! :)
The picture I posted is Carver playing with his new toy that he picked out tonight at Target! His potty chart is full of stickers again and we had such a great day of going on the big boy potty (or outside) that we had to go get him a treat! Something besides his "nem n' nems"! That's Carver talk for M&Ms!!
