Potty Training

Today was an excellent day of achieving “pee pee in the potty” so I feel its a good day to comment about the whole endeavor. I guess the true task of potty training started when P was 3 weeks old. My husband read an article about training babies by the time they are 6 months … Continue reading Potty Training

One word at a time

P can say quite a few words now. She’s hit a point where she’s learning about 2-3 a day.  It’s amazing.  What I find really amazing is that even though she regularly uses some words like Pappa and eat she can’t say more than one word at a time.  So, she can’t say: “Pappa eat”.  … Continue reading One word at a time

Drinking Glasses

For the most part, P drinks out of real glasses.  I am very cautious about the safety of plastic so everything P puts into her mouth I make sure is BPA, phylate, etc. free.  I’m not really sure why I ended up going straight to glass with drinks.  I remember 6 months ago going through … Continue reading Drinking Glasses

There is a backlash happening where no discipline seems to be the alternative choice. Parents are afraid of making their child … Continue reading Discipline

Mother’s Day

Pool Safe

We started our second session of ISR swim safety class.  I say “we” because it may be P in the water but there’s alot of work in it for me.  It’s a fantastic class.  Last year we did it when P was 8 months.  Since then, I’ve never been worried about her being near a … Continue reading Pool Safe
