A couple days ago, I made a printable behavior chart and then shared it here. Using the same template, I converted it into a chore chart! We definitely needed one for Lorelai. She’s been pretty good about picking up after herself, but I think having a dedicated sticker chart for her chores will help even more. […]
I made this behavior chart as a last ditch effort to get Lorelai to behave – mostly around bedtime. She has been so challenging when it comes to going to sleep. Last night we spent 2 hours “fighting” with her to get her down. It has to stop… we are drained mentally/emotionally. Hopefully this helps! […]
One of my biggest pet peeves as a parent are the amount of toys my child has collected. Between birthday bashes, Christmas, random gifts from family… it’s just overwhelming. I had a system set up about 6 months ago where she had a bunch of small-ish bins in the closet filled with different toys that […]
I cut Lorelai’s sandwich into a heart shape today and told her it was because she’s special and I love her. WOW. If I had foreseen the reaction I got, I would have started cutting her sandwiches into special shapes a long time ago. She flipped. Squealed her little Lorelai squeal. Jumped up and down […]
One thing I can admit to slacking big-time on with Lorelai is potty training. I’ve been trying to get her trained, on and off, for about 6 months now. We’ll start, she’ll make a little headway, and then we’ll go back into pull-ups. Right before our trip to MD, I decided to hold off on […]
A little bit of the conversation Lorelai and I had yesterday: Me: Lorelai, please take your baby bed in your room. Her: I can’t, Mommy, it’s wucking heavy! Time to start watching my mouth!
Last night in a last ditch attempt to keep Lore occupied so that M and I could get some stuff done, we pulled out the block box from the closet. She played by herself for a good 20 minutes and then was begging M to go build a tower with her. He went over, sat […]
Lorelai was 14-ish months here and she knew all of the basic animal sounds. She had some animal picture books and my mom and I would “read” to her by going through and telling her what the animals “say”… she caught on very quickly. Working with your children doesn’t mean that you’re shoving stuff down […]
I was in the bathroom yesterday morning brushing my teeth when I heard a bunch of giggling from the living room. Poked my head out to find Lorelai petting a fish. That’s right. She turned the tall laundry basket over, dumped the clothes, pushed it up against the wall and climbed onto it. Our little […]
