Since yesterday afternoon, Iris has pooped in the potty three times and peed in it at least twice.
For those who might have trouble telling apart “the sisters with the I names”, Iris is the baby. Who turned one two weeks ago.
Yesterday she climbed onto Ingrid’s little potty with her pants on. Out of curiosity, I took her pants and diaper off and sat her back down. Then the phone rang. I was distracted for a few seconds, and when I came back to her the deed was done. The two times today were kind of the same thing. She went to the potty and fussed and fussed until I got her undressed and helped her sit down.
Her big sister—who, in all her three years plus three months, has landed every poop squarely in a diaper—looked on proudly, clapping. Good job, Iris! Hooray for you!
I will now begin shopping for my outfit for the Nobel banquet.
It’s been a busy stretch, here. A was away for five days, we are embroiled in the last scramble of a day care decision, and I’ve been busy (pardon my blushing) reading a book about how to be spontaneous. And eating tomatoes. Maybe this week I’ll get it together to write again.
