Halle- freakin'- lujah!!

This post is about poop- fair warning...

See this picture!? See the new baby doll with baby doll potty?? This was Livie's "Poop in the Potty" prize. And YES- IT IS OPENED!!!
Finally today she did it!! I had thought in the past about just having her run around barebum because I didn't think she'd poop on the floor intentionally. So today she had on a gown and got that look like she needed to poop and I told her, "Nope. You aren't pooping in your pants." and I took her panties. I also put her basket of panties that is in the laundry room up on a high shelf so she couldn't just run get a new one. She was SO mad. MAD. MAD. MAD. Like screamed "NO!!!" at the top of her lungs for an hour. I finally gave in to get her to shut up and gave her her panties. Then I told her, "If you poop in your pants I am taking your panties again." This seemed to work. After attempting to hold it for an hour or 2 she finally cried and said, "I need to go potty!!" She pooped a little, crying the whole time, and jumped off as quickly as possible. 5 minutes later she did the same thing. 5 minutes later she did it again and I think she got it all out that time. She was still VERY mad at me. Didn't even want to open her gift. Didn't want candy. Didn't want to call Daddy. Nada. 1/2 an hour later she told me, "Mom, I pooped in the potty. But don't poop in your pants or NO panties!" YAY!!!
Finally she decided to open her gift and has been playing happily with it for an hour. She was even telling her doll, "I'm here. I'll hold your hand. It's ok..." while it sat on the toilet. Wonder where she heard that?? Let's just hope the "no panties" threat continues to work, because nothing else did.

I wanted to post that anonymously and throw in a couple of typos, but like Nobo says, I'm chicken.
