Celebrate even the wee things!

While she was busying herself with a matchbox car, Amaya followed me into the bathroom. She wasn't paying any attention to me, but after I "went potty", she looked up, smiled heartily, and clapped, "Yay Mommy, you did it".

I had to laugh. When was the last time you got praise for going pee pee on the potty? Next trip to the bathroom, be sure to give yourself a pat on the back! That was a learned behavior, and "you did it!"

I can't wait to see Amaya! They do and say the darnest things at that age. At her age, you though the potty was behind the bedroom door!
