Whenever a toddler is nearing the milestone of becoming potty trained, it’s worth noting, especially if it’s your last kid. Last time I wrote about Carrie’s potty training adventures, I went on and on (and on) about her lack of interest in pooping in the potty. Well that has changed my friends, that has changed. It was a momentous occasion here in the Meak household, so it was worth documenting on video. I know, I know, you’re probably groaning to yourself, not another awful potty home video. Well, this is no ordinary home video. See for yourself. I promise it will not disappoint.
That right there does a parent proud. She’s even really proud, but I’m sure her opinion of this major achievement will change when she sees it over and over and over again, including at her wedding. Like any proud parent, I’ve been showing this video to anyone who will watch it, and even some people who are a little grossed out by the whole 21 seconds of what I consider utter cuteness. At work, I’ve been whipping out my iPhone, asking people if they want to see something, and hitting play even before they have a chance to run away in horror. Yes, I am one of those annoying people, not only forcing my co-workers to look at videos and pictures of my cute Jewbodian kids, but also regaling them with kid stories. I’ve been doing it for years and probably will never stop, so I thank my very patient co-worker friends for putting up with it.
As much as I’m willing to show off this video to people I know, I’ve been a little hesitant about posting this video for anyone to see, not for fear of future embarrassment to Carrie. That’s a given. No, if you watch the video you’ll see she’s not wearing anything on the bottom half of her body. However, if her underwear and pants weren’t around her ankles, I don’t think the video would exist. That would mean there was no “POOPY IN THE POTTY!” However, her t-shirt does a pretty good job of covering things up, and this really is way too funny not to share. Who knows, this could be the next big internet sensation. Probably not, but I’m still very proud of my little stinker, proud enough to share.
