I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

::head hitting desk::

Potty Training 5 days before we move, a brilliant idea. No, not my brilliant idea, but because apparently it's the cool thing to do at daycare, so June Bug insists on trying it at home.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all about not having to change a toddler diaper for sure, but his timing sucks.  I'm sure moving will hinder any progress we've made, maybe not, but big life changes tend to do that sort of thing.

His favorite blankie hard at work!
Second, Lady Bug is in a stage where she only naps on me.  Inevitably June Bug will be stripped down sitting on the potty, Lady Bug will fall asleep on my shoulder, and that's when June Bug will decide he's done and wants to run around.  I'm left with two options:

A. Wake up Lady Bug in order to re-diaper June Bug=no accident but a screaming baby

B. Let Lady Bug sleep while June Bug romps diaper free= inevitable accident, but happy baby

Last time I pondered this decision for a split second too long and the result: an accident AND a screaming baby because I yelped in her ear. Wouldn't you yelp if your toddler peed on your feet? ::sigh::

And of course June Bug is very particular when it comes to the tactiles and doesn't like the plastic seat sticking to his bum. His solution: put a blanket between him and toilet. Awesome. I foresee our future potty training days going swimmingly.
