End of the school year!

Geez where oh where did the time go?  That's all I hear.  Well I'll tell you where the time went!  To cooking, cleaning, nurturing, bathing, studying,  preparing and to everything else that consumes us daily.   Hopefully during all this time we were great role models for our children.   That to me is the most important of them all. I hope I displayed a great picture of what a wife, mother, friend and daughter should be like.   I know in the daughter arena there's still a lot of room for growth.    Anyway let's see what today brings.

Recipe for Getting Rid of the Bottle

  • Decide when you are going to start (I think weekends are best) 
  • 1 to 2 weeks before start talking with your child about it, prepare them
  • Do not let your emotions get in the way, stick to the plan
  • Each and every time he/she drinks from a cup praise them, make a big deal out of it!
its easier for the child than it is us

always thinking

Don't forget toddlers are some very curious and bright individuals.  They are exploring there surroundings and testing our limits. At this age they are figuring us out too.  Stick to your word! Very important.

Focus on the good!

Rather than putting your child on time out every time you witness bad behavior, reward them each and every time they are doing good.  Ex: little rewards like a coin and every time they reach $2 take them for ice cram on Friday or something similar

Positive encounters

A childs mind is like a sponge.  Think about this each time you expose your child to anything, ask yourself is this something I want them to remember, retain or learn from.  If it's something negative that you had no control over use it as a teaching tool.  " Mommy doesn't like that, that was not okay....." Then explain why it was not okay.

Respect goes along way

Respect your children, always.  In turn they will learn to respect you but most importantly respect themselves <3
