I have two major, major goals this summer....things I have been dreading since before Becca was even conceived. I am procrastinating on both for the longest possible time, because......Dread. Doom. Gloom. God help us all.
Goal One: Potty train Becca. Normally I wouldn't be concerned about this, but my child apparently thinks the toilet is the devil incarnate. She is adamant about NOT wanting to do it. My dad bought her an innocuous little potty chair at his house in Texas and she burst into tears at the sight of it. I think I permanently screwed her up sometime during this timeframe. Like, seriously screwed her up. She is going to be 13 and still going in diapers, and I won't be able to leave my house due to the shame of it all. I'll be huddled around a small portable potty, sobbing into it, muttering "Why? Why? Why?" She has to be potty trained to go to preschool in September. The same month we should be having another member of the household arrive. DAMMIT. This is pressure I DO NOT NEED!!!!
Goal Two: Move her to big girl bed and convince her never to get out of the bed without permission (HARDY HAR HAR HAR HAR.) We have at least made a step in the right direction, as we had this delivered and set up today. I told her she can't sleep in it until Mommy gets coordinating curtains and a quilt. Sorry, honey! Mommy is OCD and you can't move into your room until it is all matchy matchy! I am looking on Ebay for a Pottery Barn Kids pattern (Ava in lavender), namely because it matches the wall color and I AM NOT REPAINTING. I'm not that OCD. Sorry, kid. You are getting a blue/gray bedroom because I am way too damn lazy to do anything about it.
(But, isn't it still cute and girly?)
