Funny, writing this must have broken the dam somehow... today he had three (largish) poops. Maybe as soon as mama stops worrying, it comes? Hilarious! Thanks for all the calming and helpful responses!

Your daughter might really enjoy getting a professional one (even small) at a salon because she could then brag about the authenticness of the salon experience. Otherwise, you...
Yeah, it's also important to realize that some of the foreigners you see "driving hummers" etc, are from the very top of the social/economic spectrum in their home countries and are not here to work, but to shop etc. Better to compare them to the folks you see on Madison Ave in NYC and on Rodeo Drive in SoCal.
