Yesterday DD who generally is really doing well on the EC front (but not signaling much at all) had some loose stool, and when that happens it generally ends up on the floor unlike normal poos which 99% end up in the potty... and it did in fact end up on the floor. Anyway, that was a fluke, but as I was cleaning it up, I noticed DD behind me with a handful of wipes "cleaning" the floor!!! She was squatting down wiping the floor, then moving to another spot and wiping some more.
It was both cute (b/c she was mimicking me), sad (b/c apparently I do this enough for her to have picked it up), and frustrating as heck (b/c if she knows that after she goes on the floor we clean it up)!!!!
I've seen her do this a few times now though usually for pee misses b/c we rarely have poo misses. Is this a bad sign? Does it mean that she thinks typical potty protocol is 1. pee on floor, 2. run around in it, 3. clean it up, NOT 1. tell mommy, 2. go on potty, 3. wipe bum? OR is this a good sign, showing that she maybe sometime soon she'll put everything together in her mind and know that when she goes on the potty we're happy and she's clean, and when she goes on the floor we're not as happy (although we don't make a huge deal out of it, we do tend to get a little frustrated
, and we have to clean the floor?
