Today, I watched Annie pee in the backyard for the first time ever! Don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind the litterbox – but Chuck and I both find it odd that Miss Bean will spend so much time in the yard but scramble back inside to use the potty. Aren’t animals supposed to know the grass makes for a great toilet?
So, there I was relaxing on the patio watching her frolic, and before I knew it, she wandered to a small corner of the yard, popped a chubby little squat, and went! She even tried to cover it like a lady (I guess she hasn’t grasped that you can’t paw through grass like you can litter.) I don’t really know why this is so exciting to me, but it’s like that moment when you realize your kid is finally potty trained… or so I would imagine.
