Pottying Excitement

We began the potty adventure several months ago, with the addition of pull-ups into our lives and every once in a while thinking about sitting on the potty. From August till about December it was just something he tried and occasionally it happened, but after Christmas, it started clicking.
Last Tuesday I sent him in underwear to school. I had an idea of what might happen, and although it took all I had not to call every 5 minutes to check on him, I did quite well...and I didn't call once, thank you. :) He managed to go through the three pairs of underwear and had a pullup on when I got there. He is still learning.
So, we talked about it. Prayed about it. Put him back in the pullups and went another couple of days. I was out of town this past weekend, so I was unsure if Jeremy would want to try and help him get over this hump...luckily for me...he was!! So, he worked with him on Friday night and all day Saturday and do you know that boy stayed dry!!! He even went to the potty at Sunday School yesterday!!! That boy is so funny.
He sat in the bathroom with me yesterday and looked at me and said "Mom, isn't this pee-peein' fun?" Oh yeah, buddy, it's fun.
He's at school right now in big boy pants. He is excited and just loves that I get so excited with him. So, say a little prayer for the boo today. He is turning more and more into a man everyday.

In Love-

Help us learn to hold everything up against your Word...when it doesn't line up, we come to the crossroads and may you be the One guiding our steps. may we serve your FREELY!

What a beautiful reminder to always surrender our lives to HIM.
