Did you hear about Jen’s new book? Ha. If you haven’t, then get the beach out of your audios. Here is the trailer for her book. You might be interested in 1:17. I am so thrilled that Jen thought to include me in this. Thanks, friend!
Sam’s first birthday is barreling down the tracks and making me say things like, “Wow! Time flies!” I’m trying to figure out how to make it special for him since he won’t know the difference at all. And, after Ellen’s blowout a few years back, I feel like I need to at least buy balloons for the kid.
Also, on the present front, the kids have so.many.toys. We were thinking about opening him a bank account and then taking him somewhere special for a day.
Any ideas for things on the party front? And, what’s fun for a 1-year-old to do?
Mike and I went on a date last weekend.
My latest Twice Box. I kept most aside from the crazy bat wing jacket, the parka and the old lady yellow shirt.
I went to Target on Monday and walked out with an Ergo dilemma. They had the carrier on clearance for $35. Brand new. Just sitting there. $35. So, I snitchy snatched it.
And now I sit here with three baby carriers to my name, but I want them all because I love them all. What do I do?
Thing have been slow go burn out around here. The weather is breaking a tad and activities are picking up, but I just can’t seem to stop bumming around.
Both chilluns are reaching hard for the neediest needlet award, and I feel like I can’t go more than 30 seconds without one of them neeeeeding me so desperately for something incredibly (not at all) important.
I’ve heard once before that the more time we invest in front of a screen as an escape, the more desperately we need a break. I just need to find out what that break is going to be and when I’m going to take it.
I have approximately nil motivation to get my bum in gear to do anything productive at all. I also feel like I lack good judgement skills when it comes to parenting. How do I know when to discipline and when to let something go because she is just two? How do I know what method of discipline to use in what moment?
I get frustrated SO easily and feel like I come down too hard on the kids. Other times I feel like I am being lazy and need to be more assertive. Where is the line between raising respectful and well-behaved kids, and being a nit-picky nag?
I just wish I had a more clear view on how to handle discipline and when/what things to let things go. When, why, how, etc.
