Pumpkin Pie has a little friend that is seven weeks younger than her. They have been best pals since birth, really, since her mom and I forced it upon them. It's worked out great, because they really seem to love each other. Anyway, her mom mentioned that she's begun potty-training.
Now, you know I've had two epic failures in this area. And I truly am glad that Pumpkin Pie's friend is being potty-trained. But I'm a little bummed about it too, because it just reminds me that I am going to need to tackle that huge, messy chore again. Soon.
I have all sorts of valid excuses.
- Honey Pie is still waking up every three hours at night. I'm tired. And potty-training requires a HUGE amount of energy from the mom. So maybe I should wait until Honey Pie's sleeping is stabilized a bit better.
- We are now in the holiday season. Life is crazy. We'll be spending all sorts of time away from home, so maybe now isn't the time to try and institute such a huge life change.
- We hope to move at the beginning of the year. Do I really want to potty-train in the midst of packing boxes?
- She won't be three until June. That's seven months away. Plenty of time to potty train.
I'm cheering on her friend, though. I plan to use her being potty-trained as some healthy peer-pressure.
