HOORAY! THREE CHEERS!
Hazel Jayne Wells uses the toilet!!
SHHHHHH! She doesn't want to talk about it. No 'good job', no 'I'm proud of you'. Jed and I have to pretend we haven't been dreaming about this for TWO years.
"Nice job, Hazel. Now let's flush the toilet." [Stars and Stripes Forever] "Let me help you wash your hands." [Hallelujah Chorus]
We did it! We potty trained our firstborn! Our four year old firstborn!
Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration. Hazel trained herself. Jed helped get the wheels turning by suggesting an idea to her (that I've mentioned to her before--but it didn't come from her dad). We came a few steps futher until--big toilet it was!
And now....we have a kitty.
