I have nothing to say about potty training, except for one thing. It sucks.
This is my daughter, a while back.
She has three older brothers. That should clear up any confusion.
(cupping my hands to my mouth: "It doesn't work like that for us, honey! We all wish it did from time to time, believe me!")
Like I said, I have nothing to say about potty training, except for how bad it sucks.
I don't consider myself a supersitious person, but I'm a big believer in "potty training karma". Brag about your kid being potty trained? Your kid will crap their pants out of nowhere at the next most inopportune moment.
Make fun of someone else for not having their kid potty trained? It'll take you 2 years on your next kid to work out all the kinks.
Maybe you bragged/made fun and all your kids are trained? Maybe it'll be you crapping your pants at an older age. Something to think about.
Like I said: sucks. That is all.
Let's move on, shall we?
Let me sum up:
I have a little girl, now, as opposed to a baby girl. This makes me sad. And happy. It's a confusing time.
Up 'til recently, she would not let us move her out of her baby cage.
I will never understand it, but she loved her crib.
Then one day while I was hanging her laundry, I watched her climb into it, and then out, and then inandout, and it was all,
"What the. . . ? Oh forget this!"
And I took apart the crib the next day. Sheesh.
I've had plans for a mini-makeover in her teensy weensy room forever.
Let's just say it's closer to a year away from when I wrote down my ideas in the first place.
I've decided what's staying, what's going, and contemplated repainting.
Sold the rocking chair on KSL (gone in an instant),
and decided not to paint. Because painting sucks. Not as bad as potty training, but kinda close in my book.
It's okay if you don't care for her paint color, because it's not your room. But if it were your room, then I'd say you should paint. But since it's not your room, we are okay here.
Let's talk plans! ("Project!" (Squeal)
The shelf you see in the picture above? Gift from the Daddy-o. That is sooo, so staying. I consider it the jewel of this room.
So, what do I want? Delicate. Pwetty. Slight European look. MORE MOLDING. Oh yes, there will be more molding.
("Is that even possible in that room?")
This is such an interwebs faux pas,
But I don't know where I found this lovely picture. (Everyone tsks their tongue at me). There will be some of this. Crown costs a lot, and I'm on what I like to call a "spending cleanse", so I'm going to get very creative here. Stay tuned.
There will be one of these.
(80% done in the garage for like months)
Oh, and I just had to have this coverlet I saw at Target,
back when I justified every single thing I saw and loved at Target, and it was for the "good of the house". It was twoo wuv. I was smitten. I was in deep smit.
Aw, there it is. (FYI it's been puked on 3 times since I busted it out. The nasty, smelly, acidy kind. It's held up well in the washing machine, though.)
You know what this bed needs? A tufted headboard in linen. I agree. I'll get right on it.
