The parent I strive to be one day

The lovely Mrs. Jib and I have not yet decided to procreate and bless this world with our comingled genetic material. But when that day comes, Heather Armstrong at Dooce exemplifies the type of parent I strive to be:
Just now Leta discovered that she could stick her finger into her own nostril. My instinct was to cheer her on and tell her, “Pick a winner, little one. Pick a winner!”
Related to this, I plan to potty train my kids in record time, but I will teach them that if they are going to fill their pants, they should give it every once of effort they have. Grunting would be perfectly acceptable.
