Dear Camden, I'll never forget...

Whenever you ask me for a special treat, something you know very well I might not approve of, and I kneel down real close to your face, you smile your buck-toothed grin, cock your head to the side, and say (so sweetly) 'Hi!' It's as if 'Hi' is your "cherry on top" of 'Pretty Please.'
And it gets me every time.

Tonight after dinner, you asked to take off your diaper, marched to the bathroom, tried to climb onto the toilet (luckily I followed), and with me holding you steady, you pooped in the potty. You've had many false alarms. You often pretend you have to go, I think to get an extra few oh-so-fascinating flushes in. Once you said "poop" while naked, then pooped in the living room soon after. I should have listened. Another time I took your diaper off at the beach, you squatted, and, yep! Out came poop. But tonight, for the first time, you really did it.
YAY, Stinky!

I don't see the post any more, do you still have those adorable shoes??? If so I definitely want to take them off your hands. Let me know! :)
