Is It the Diet Already?
December 6, 2008
A couple of HUGE things. First, we got back from Ames this morning after a lovely pre-screening of Esmerelda (which I highly recommend if you’re in the Des Moines/Ames area). It will NOT disappoint. The cast is wonderful (especially Bill and Hetty), the set design and costumes are magical and there are a ton of cool “theatrics” that I have been sworn not to reveal. Pretty amazing stuff!
ANYWAY, when we got home this afternoon, Gavin ASKED if he could put on his Elmo underwear. If you’ve been following our journey, you’ll remember that I tried this past summer to potty-train Gavin, but by day 2 he would cry and tell me he was all done going potty. Yeah, I was not successful. Every once in a while since then we’ve sat him on the potty, but he’ll sit for a while without going. So you can imagine how excited we were when he brought up wearing his underwear. And get this, HE’S BEEN GOING IN THE POTTY EVERY TIME WE ASK. This has not happened before. He hasn’t had a single accident yet and he is SO proud of himself when he goes. He gets it this time! (The down side is that he’s being rewarded with Skittles that I know are not SCD approved. Hopefully one Skittle at a time won’t do too much damage to our new diet. Fingers crossed.) I’d much rather have him potty trained right now.
The other big thing is that Gav has been spending a lot of time playing with my old doll house lately. He’s actually playing with the people inside, making them go from room to room and they are having conversations with each other. Again this is HUGE because pretend play is not something he normally does.
Is this because of the diet?!
