#2 on a stick- literally

Oh dear. Are you ready for another toddler potty-training story? You bet you are.

The other morning I woke up to Sitora exclaiming, "I went pee-pee in the potty mommy!" She handed me the little detachable seat that disconnects from the potty chair. I looked, and sure enough, it was in there. "Great job honey!" I said while I stumbled into the kitchen to reward her with a piece of candy. Yes, in the morning. (Don't judge- it works.) I could barely open my eyes as I meandered through the house with the morning light streaming through the windows. You see, when Sitora wakes up every morning she proceeds to take off her own pajamas and diaper and goes potty all by herself. It's great. And yet sometimes a teensy bit... scary.

One particular time this week I caught our little princess being a little mischievous in the potty department.

#2. on. a. stick. I'm not even kidding you.

Sitora had gone #2 and she was a little curious about it this time. She didn't wake me up to clean it up. She wanted to investigate. She managed to find one of her "dancing ribbon wands" we use to dance to worship music together. She took the dancing ribbon wand and stuck it in her #2. Then she picked it up and waved it in the air. Over and over. And that's when I caught her.

The toddler years. They're killin' me smalls. Someone please save me?
