Ever had a day when all you do is eat?
Ever had a day when all you do is eat sugar?
I feel like all I've done today is stuff copious amounts of carbohydrates down my throat. And chocolately things. And I just. can't. stop. Ah the life of a female.
In more pressing news, I need toddler help. What is this new "almost-2" phase we've entered? I don't know what to do with it. She's waking up at odd hours with loud crying saying "get up! get up!" throwing her version of a mild fit which includes foot stomping and prone laying, and grinning at me when I attempt a disciplinary tap on her leg.
Ya'll, I need spanking lessons. Or something. I've yet to come up with anything severe enough to produce the desired outcome of stopping whatever behavior I've asked her to stop. It's not a frequent thing, we're just entering this new phase I guess.
We still need to potty train. I have no idea when I should move her into a toddler bed. A lady at the daycare told me a lot of people move them around 1 year old. Ha! Yeah right! Seriously? But is 2 a good age? She's learning so much and saying more and more.
"That's daddy's towel."
"Get up mommy! Stop it daddy!" :-0
We kind of look at each other and think, ok, was that discipline worthy or do we just keep laughing? I don't know if the waking up thing at night is a habit she picked up during her ear infection...hurting...or what. She goes back to sleep in our bed which is NOT a good thing to do but at 2:00 in the morning, it's hard to make that call. Grandmother is calling for some tough love and stick-to-it-ness!
Moms: when did you move your baby out of their crib? When did you start disciplining in a more formal way? I'm going to mull all this over while I grab another cookie.
