My baby don't mess around!

Real quick - big doings here at the G's Spot!

First day of camp for the little one. No calls from camp. From 9 - 3 pm and let me just say
YYYYYEEEEEEHHHHHHAAAAWWWWW! She did it! Took care of bizness on both ends, shall we say! Outside of the house and without me!

Phew! Each time the phone rang (all two times), I shook with fear.

When I picked her up this was our conversation...and I don't feel abashed to share it with all of you since EVERYONE in Thousand Oaks has heard this from her - or at least the gelato lady at Whole Foods, and the check out guy there too, and the counselors at big Sissy's camp, and my sister who just had to be called, and ....


Me: Rachel, do you know how amazingly proud I am of you today?
Rachel: This is the best day ever!
Me: Doesn't it make your insides feel good when you are proud of yourself?
Rachel: I listened weller than I thought, mom. I did it two times and all by myself.
Me: Yes - now a whole new world of fun things can happen for you and the family.
Rachel: This is the best day EVER! Now we can go on a cruise, right? (hint, hint Hubby)

May you all be blessed with a pooper.

My baby does mess around. 2 and a half and still refusing to even glance in the direction of the potty.

Sigh...

But hooray to you!

Me too and Lauren at http://canubapartofmylife.blogspot.com/ is too. Cool!!!

Yay! Good for her. And I think that is a perfectly good reason to go on a cruise. And I am always on the look out for good reasons to go on another cruise...
