That's right folks.
This morning Jason called to tell me that he was changing Dawson's diaper and there was a little poop nugget in there. So Jason quickly grabbed another diaper to get it under Dawson before all poop nastiness broke loose, when Dawson yelled out
"No! I go poop in the big boy potty!"
So Jason picked him up, held him out in front of him and ran like the wind to the restroom. He plopped Dawson down on the toilet.
Several minutes pass.
Then Jason proceeds to give Dawson a lesson in grunting 101 and sure enough,
Dawson went poop in the potty!
(I just spent several minutes trying to download the "kerplop" sound wave and it wouldn't work.)
Dawson was very excited about it and told me all about it on the phone afterward and Jason said Dawson couldn't stop talking about it the whole drive to daycare.
And that's not all!
When I came to see him at lunch, his teacher, Miss Melissa, (that's a lot of comma's for one sentence) told me as soon as I walked in the door that Dawson went potty today on the potty and earned himself a sticker!
I'm so proud of my little pooper.

Before I end this post I'd like to take a minute to give a shout out to all my Hacienda friends who spent several days puking their guts out with the fringe benefit of diarrhea. I have now gotten the report that 7 out of the 8 families who were at Hacienda got sick the next day after we met.
Dawson and I were the only family untouched by this phenomenon.
I have prayed all morning that I will not get it because I nearly ate a whole pizza last night by myself.
I'm sorry guys!!

And to all my blog readers out there, I must also apologize because after reading back through this post, I realized this is more poop in this post than in most toilets.

Alright! Way to go Dawson - yeah!!!!!!!!!! I think the best part of this blog is reading about how Jason gives Dawson a lesson in grunting 101! I can just picture - or rather "hear" Jason doing that - LOL!

I read the title of your post and thought, "Oh no!! I hope they didn't get the Hacienda squirts!" I am glad to read that no one is sick and that everything is still "normal" at your house. :)

P.S. I am honored that you thieved my picture. :)

Quite an entertaining post! I've thrown up pizza before and I do not recommend it.
Stay healthy!!

at least by the time most of us (NOT YOU) got sick, we had the hacienda out of systems because THAT would've been nasty coming back up.

I too thought that perhaps Dawson had gotten the bug and you were dealing with the runs! LOL. Potty training so sooo much fun. Glad we've got one more to go.
