Everybody Goes

Even the Man of Steel.

Now that I think of it, is Superman's waste also invulnerable? Is his poo bulletproof? Does his stream cut through concrete?

The plumbing at the Fortress of Solitude must be awesome!

Quick potty update. Peeing has been pretty consistent since his "Can Coming Out" two months ago, but Big Jobs were another thing. After a couple of successful attempts, The Boy refused to go poop in anything but his pants, to the point he would ask us to put on his pants just so he could crap himself.

Then three weeks ago, with lots of coaxing and a bit of forceful encouragement, we got him onto the potty. Five minutes later - TOUCHDOWN! We were happy and so was he. "It looks like a snake!" he squealed.

Last week has been virtually diaper-free as both Big Jobs and Little Jobs are now happening with alarming regularity.

"I've laid another snake!"

Yes you have son, and Dad's very proud of you.
