you'll want to read this.............

I am probably completely biased, but I think Graeme is the sweetest two year old I have ever met.  We just began potty training yesterday and I am so proud of him.

This morning Graeme got a little preoccupied with his cars, and from the kitchen I heard his little bewildered cry, that really means, mama it's too late.  Pointlessly, I rushed him to the potty, and gave him the old speel about telling mama before you start to go potty.  I hope that I never forget his little response to me.

He said, "I'm sorry about da socks, and da peepee on da floor, and da carpet.  It's yucky."

After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I grabbed his sweet face and kissed him about ten times and said, "It is okay.  It is yucky--but mama loves you so much and I'm going to help you learn to use the potty so that you don't peepee on the floor.  It is okay."

oh boy, I love him.

sweet with a capital S.
right there.
plain and simple.

and on that note, happy weekending!

  2. me too, mom. I just couldn't believe that he was able to think through all of that and that he even thought to say "sorry"-- not that he needed to at all, which is why I felt bad;-( He is so sweet. AND, he is doing AMAZINGLY well on the potty! I'm so proud of him!
