There may be a light at the end of the tunnel!

So, after my post on Eliana's desire to use the potty, the most amazing thing happened. We were playing at CityBeach in Fremont for my brother's birthday celebration. He wanted to go rock-climbing and this seemed like a good place to go since it had other things to do besides climb. It turned out that we didn't do anything else there, but still it was a good time. I would like to go back again.

Anyway, we headed out to Red Robin for lunch where we proceded to gorge on milkshakes and burgers. After lunch, Jayden had a funny look on his face. I asked, "What's up, Jayden, you okay?" He said, "Mommy, I hafta poopie." I said,"You have to or you already did?" "Not yet " "Can you h0ld it a second? Let's go to the bathroom!" "Ok"

Then we rushed to the bathroom, I put the paper down and put him on the potty...HE HELD IT! And, then, it was time to poop. Nope...he got scared and wanted to get down. I bribed him with a new toy if he pooped in the potty. He bit! A new toy is in the making! My adorable, stubborn, obstinate little boy finally agreed to poop in the potty! YAY!!

Later in the evening, we went out to dinner with Dave's brother (yep...a day of brothers!) and we went to Blockbuster to get some movies. While we were shopping, Jayden said,"I have to go potty!" I was dumbfounded! But, Ashley was waving at her nose as though he already pooped so I thought we were too late. Dave rushed Jayden to the potty but it was grosser than gross in there. He changed Jayden's diaper and figured since it was full of pee that he had already gone. Turns out, a few minutes later, Jayden was poopy again! HE ASKED TO GO TO THE POTTY TWICE IN THE SAME DAY! WOW!

I am hoping that was a jumpstart from Ellie's desire to use the potty. Maybe it is the start of something real....

Here's to hoping!
