DH and I unexpectedly decided to start DD in a 2d/wk preschool the first week of Dec. We are trying to space everything out as to not overload DD. I am due mid-Feb with baby #2. We also just painted and furnished a new bedroom for DD to move into since the baby will be taking over DD's current room. Here is where I need advice. Do we potty train first or move DD out of her crib and into her new room first? We are doing one or the other Over Thanksgiving. My mom was planning on coming up (6h drive) Thanksgiving but DH thinks we should tell her not to so we can use that time to potty train without distractions. My mom also wants to come here the whole week of Christmas. With limited time before baby #2 arrives, I feel like starting potty training, moving DD out of her crib and into a new room, starting preschool, holiday visits from my mom and trying to get ready for baby #2 all within 5w is too much for us and DD. Should I tell my mom not to come here so we can get DD transitioned? My OB said I'm measuring ahead and to plan on an early delivery (will have another scheduled c/s date) if necessary.....like very early Feb if needed.
What should I do? I need to either potty train or move DD out of crib Thanksgiving weekend. Does it matter which order? Is one less stressful right before starting school than the other? Is it better to potty train before starting preschool? And should I tell my mom not to come for Thanksgiving if we are transitioning DD either way? What would you do?
