She just can't take it anymore

More to the pooping saga....

So for the last 2 weeks or so, I have not had to fight with Caitlyn to poop on the potty. It has actually just been happening when she tells me she has to pee, and then suddenly tells me that she pooped too. Well, for the last 3 days, she has actually told me that she has to poop...and then does! Big improvements from needing a suppository because she was with holding for a week at a time. Now we are up to at least every other day!

So tonight, my child ate more in one sitting that she usually does. She told me she wanted breakfast at 7:00pm becuase she didn't eat her breakfast this morning. Well, if you know Cate and her history, I immediately ran to the kitchen and began whipping up an omelet and pancakes (and if you knwo me and my history, this is a rarity). So I made an omelet of one egg and 4 small pancakes. She also wanted fruit, but I told her she could have that after she ate. This child of mine was cramming food into her face like I have never seen before. I actually had to tell her to slow down....words I thought would never exit my lips. When there was only a few bits of omelet and 1/2 a pancake left, I told her if she was full she could stop eating. She said she wasn't full yet....words I thought would never exit Cate's lips. So then she also devoured some fruit.

Needless to say, I figured she was going to explode on me tomorrow. However, as I am sitting at the computer (shocker I know) she comes up to me, legs crossed and says, "I just can't take it anymore." When I ask her what she is talking about, she tells me, "I just can't take it anymore. I have to poop." So I unfasten her pants and tell her to hurry to the potty. As she is seated on the potty, I hear her repeating to herself, "I can't take this poop anymore. I have to poop so bad." Within minutes, there it is. And of course, as all children like to do, she is sure to describe it to me as she stands up. And wouldn't you know it, this one resembled a banana :P

so I think that we have overcome all of our fears of pooping in the potty...thank God in heaven. We are also expanding our horizoms and learning how to use public restrooms.....when did my life turn into this????
