Anyhoo...today Yaya came in amid the stampede of the baby and Cooper and the dogs...ya know barking squealing screaming..Shouts of "Gitdown, Gitdown dawg" and Coop's "Yayayayayayayayayaya"...well there was one voice conspicuously absent.."Where's Deacon?" She asked..
"Doan know" I replied (never a good answer with Deacon)...so we start to hunt...the lights in the far side are off because in the afternoon I try to keep it cool...it's intolerably hot on that side...and I have an average size house..small by some standards..so it's not like I had to go to the east wing to look for him..but no Deac..now I start flipping lights because the little bugger is small and sneaky...I flip on the light in the boys bathroom...
and there. he. is.
...on the potty...reading a
Creating Keepsakes magazine...sitting as pretty as you please...mom and I are roaring laughing...and he hides behind the magazine...pants around is ankles no diaper...on the potty ring..
I am mad that I didn't have the camera..
We he hops down and is hiding behind me..and I noticed..
HE WENT!! all by himself ..no prompt..nothing..just made up his mind and did it..
so completely Deacon...
Now I am not fool enough to believe that this wasn't a fluke but hey..I'm rolling with it...two out of diapers..what will I do...next stop another world potty tour..
Ohhh.. speaking of tour..Deacon chipped a tooth in San Antonio..not to bad but it had a sharp edge and I wasn't sure if the nerve was exposed..so we went to the dentist today..he said no nerve exposed..seems fine and used a file drill to take the edge off...because it's not IF he falls it's WHEN he falls I don't want it going through his lip...we'll keep an eye on it though..there were three other moms in there that said stuff like "When my eldest chipped his tooth"...Phew I considered writing "Evil Kneivel" in the nickname spot..now I don't feel so alone..
We had to hold him down in the chair (15-20 seconds max)..but after he got a plastic dinosaur..where he looked at her like "Where's the chocolate and dancin' girls..?? A dinosaur?" and a sticker (that he promptly stuck to my leg..)
and...he fell off the curb going out the door..only minor trip with a skinned knee but proved that I did the right thing..
