Every day - a little amazement

I won't give you the gory details, but Peanut was trying out her new travel potty seat today on top of the big toilet at home. She likes to keep track of her progress on the little potty, and was doing the same here. I guess the water in the bowl was a new experience because she said "look mommy - swimming!" Just a riot.

Then, she truly astonished me. She gets a sticker if she poops anytime before dinner (we were/are having a battle over sleeping and the litany was "water", "milk", "poop", "wrap baby", "fix blanket"...etc. ) and she got to choose one today. The stickers are those teacher motivational ones with things like, goal!, wow, nice work, great job, terrific...etc. on them. I asked which one she wanted and she looked and chose one and while she began to peel it off she said "mmmm, how bout this one - Nice Work!". Yeah. You guessed it. That is what the sticker said. Could have knocked me over with a feather.
