Potty Training

I hate potty training.  It's tedious, time-consuming, and messy.  But now and again Marley makes it funny.  I've been bribing her with marshmallows ("smooshmel-dows", she calls them)- one for pee and two for the other one.  About half the time she tries to get two marshmallows out of me, even though she's only earned one. 

So the other day she comes running into the livingroom, sans pants or underwear, excitedly yelling "Mama, I pooped, I pooped!!".  Being the fantastic mommy that I am, I sighed  jumped up off the couch and made a big deal out of going to the bathroom to see said deposit.  Only there wasn't a deposit, just liquid.  When I pointed out to her that there was no poop in the potty, her "I want two marshmallows" little mind kicked into gear.

Without missing a beat she replied, "Yes there IS poop in there, Mama.  The poop is hiding under the pee.".

I gave her two marshmallows just for being so inventive.
