Could this really be?

This is 2 days in a row that Little Peony has sat on the royal throne, the "potty".   Nothing interesting happened, if you know what I mean.  *chuckle, chuckle*  I do hope that what I'm sharing isn't TMI (too much information) for you, but thought to myself, all parents go through this particular milestone.  Maybe I'm just thinking out loud.

Well, it all started yesterday.  I was on the computer and Little Peony came straight up to me, whining while tugging on her diaper.  She wasn't very happy and I wasn't quite sure what all the fuss was about.  But the tugging continued.  Does she need a diaper change?  Is there an itch that's irritating her?  Does she need to go potty?  !!DING!!  A lightbulb moment!  Could this really be?  My 19 month old daughter is getting ready for potty training . . .

First, the diaper came off.  Second, I quickly sat Little Peony on the "throne".  Third, I held on to her petite little body so that she wouldn't fall in.  And last, the waiting game.  Face to face we waited, and waited, and waited.  Little Peony kept smiling at me and made grunting noises (sorry, TMI again).  No luck, but good effort!

Today, the same thing happened.  My daughter tugs at her diaper whining again.  We rush to the throne and nothing happens, except for the wonderful smiles and the grunting sounds . . . again.  Is she just playing me or what?  Or is this her "AHA" Oprah Winfrey moment of possibly transitioning from a diaper to the potty?  Stay tuned for Little Peony's JOURNEY to pottyhood -this could get interesting.
