A couple of things I'm thinking about at the moment.
1) Miss Petra was a model citizen on Thursday night/Friday. She went to bed at 6pm, didn't wake up three hours later for a cuddle and chat the way she has been most nights recently, and slept until 8am the next morning. Bliss! Then on Friday, she suddenly decided that she would start using her potty. Three pees in the pot and none on the carpet. We've been potty training in a desultory way for a few weeks, not pushing too hard but having the potty around and talking about it and sitting her down on it. Petra hasn't been particularly interested, but now that she's tried, she's off. Today, she's peed in the potty several times without being prompted. She's so clever and so pleased with herself. It's very cute.
2) I have a Facebook etiquette conundrum. My father-in-law has friended me. And I don't want to be his friend. Knowing that my mother is reading my status updates makes me tongue-tied enough, without having my in-laws (who I don't much like) looking over my virtual shoulder. It seems churlish of me to ignore him though, and I don't want to create a diplomatic incident or damage our real-world detente. So, I'm not sure what to do. I'm currently taking the coward's way out and simply pretending I can't see the pending request. But I'll have to make a decision sooner or later. Aarrgghh.
