Recently Juliet has decided that she wants to take showers with me. While I'm thrilled she wants to spend so much time in my company, I really really really want my showers all to myself again. It used to be that I would take a shower while she ate her breakfast. While this meant plonking her in front of some cartoons, I would get at least 7 mins of blissfully hot cleanness. I could even shave once in a while. I have since been forced into tepid warmness, while trying to keep us both warm. Compounding the issue is the fact that Juliet hates the shower head. I don't get why a child who HATES the spray of water from a shower head INSISTS that she must shower with me, in fact acts like it is the highlight of her day. So instead of getting clean, she stands shivering at the other end of the bathtub, while I shiver in tepid water. I have a removable shower head, so I've tried to teach her that the water is no big deal, by spraying her legs, and then giving her the head to spray my legs, and then trying to get her to spray herself. One top of all this lack of warmness and cleanliness, it also means that she has given up her bath at night. Who the heck wants to take a bath when they had a shower that morning? While I get her reasoning, I loved bath time as she wound down nicely ready for teeth brushing and bed.
So we are cold, not clean enough, I'm sprouting trees on my legs (and i refuse to check my pits), and having trouble going to bed.
I want my shower back!!!!!!!!

Juliet has a new interest in the potty. Last week she was taking that toy caterpillar to the potty, today it was a doll. At home we have the little potty she can sit right on, but while we are out and about I have an insert that goes on a regular toilet. Recently, while we have been places where there is no toilet nearby, I've been putting the insert on the ground for her to sit on if she asks to go. It "lives" in the car so that we always have it when needed, but of course that means that EVERY time we get in the car (even if we were only out of it for 5 mins) she MUST sit on the potty. Today she found the lid of an old wipes container. She took it in the bathroom, and not sure what she was doing with it I investigated, only to find that she had opened the hole, put it on her potty, and sat on it to pee. Wipe Lid with small hole + potty + child = pee all over bathroom floor.
Well, at least she took herself potty when she needed to go!

Soo cute. Juliet today decided to practice what she is leaning.
Her current favorite toy is a drag along caterpillar (that actually drives me CRAZY...). Today, I guess it needed to go potty...
She stood and watched for at least a min (long enough for me to grab the camera from the other room), and then as she stooped down to pick it up she said "good girl" (which is what I am always saying to her when she goes).
Then she took it over to the sink.
Wash your hands!
And then of course, it needed it's hair brushed.
Later that day I came across more cuteness, when she crawled on the bed to cuddle with Baby.

The art projects in this house have just become messier and messier. PlayDoh is the neatest thing on the face of the planet in comparison. Icecubes frozen with food dye. Finger painting... what the HECK was I thinking????
I thought I was smart... took her shirt off for her to paint. She SHOWED me though, while I was talking to someone, she hopped off her chair, and wiped her hands on the clean shirt I had set aside. Serves me right for forgetting to give her a hand towel.
