Can you hear the Angels Singing?

Warning! This post is for Mommy eyes only: Deals with toddlers and potty training.

I just have to take this opportunity to share with the entire world that my 3.5 year old just pooped ON THE POTTY for the first time all by herself!!! Up until today she has expressed some sort of fear of doing #2 on the toilet so she will squat in the corner of the bathroom and mess her panties. It has taken all my strength and patience to deal with that for the last month but I am praying that this is a turning point.

Paige: I need some pricey mom (privacy)
Me: Ok tell me when you are done.
About 1 minute later
Paige (shouting): Mom come here! I think I going poop!!!
Me: Uh..really? Let me see. (Checking the toilet, sure enough...poop) Yeah!!!
Paige: I have a Barbie now?
Me: Oh ya, I did promise you that like a month ago. I'll buy you a car if you promise me to go poop on the potty all the time.
Paige: No thanks. I jus want a Barbie.

Hallelujah!!!

Congrats!!! I know the feeling of trying to potty train and not having results, so when they finally happen it feels like a massive accomplishment.
