I never (ever) thought I would get excited about one thing in particular…


Yes, poop.

But as most moms will attest, poop becomes an integral part of your life when you have kids… and your relationship with it.

How has poop changed my life? And become an exciting thing?

Let me start with William. He now has learned to wipe himself. Yes, no more frantic calls/screams to the bathroom that he’s “done Mommy… can you wipe me!?”

Alexander. Oh, my Alexander. He (oh-my-God, let me take a deep breath before I write this) has pooped on the potty every day for the last 5 days straight. Our little “adventure” last Wednesday… that’s a day of the past. My man Alexander has it down. THANKS to the Contoured Cushie Step-up from One Step Ahead, he is a man on a mission. One Step Ahead, I owe you BIG time. The Tinkle Targets you sent us worked like magic in our home.

Benjamin. Now… just how has Benjamin’s poop made me happy? Now when he poops he runs, gets a new diaper, pulls me over and he lays down. He may not be talking a mile a minute yet… but he sure does know how to communicate that he’s pooped and he wants changed. NOW!

And Henry. Well… today he pooped. And that alone makes me happy. He doesn’t go everyday… which obviously bothers his little tummy, so when he does go… it’s almost a holiday for me! I never thought I’d be so happy to actually smell and see poop in a diaper.


How things have changed in just 4 years.

Poop. It’s a good thing.

  1. I am amazed how long conversations can be about poop with other moms too. It is like a hot topic at playgroups. Do you think this poop is ok? How often should he be pooping? What color was it? Between that and talks about nursing, I pity any man that sits next to our group of women šŸ™‚

  2. Awwww…. now that my kids are in their teens I miss the poop talks – I suppose I could try it with them but I think they’d kill me….

  3. Can’t avoid the poop! It’s just better if it’s not dinner table conversation. šŸ™‚ Congratulations on all the milestones!

  4. My Goodness! It sounds like different household, “same poop” all around! We are currently working with several of those same milestones with our three girls.

    BTW your boys are soooo handsome. Wanna fix them up with some little cuties?
