Friday Night Leftovers

  • Gianna is 17 months old. She talks NON STOP. In real words. She is starting to string words together. examples: morning. pool. kick kick kick. (in the morning we will swim, from vacation).  “piinsess peez” (tutu please).
  • The person who was supposed to be “covering” my job while I was gone – must have just covered herself in papers and took a nap because I have spent the last 40hrs of the work week catching up from LAST week. This week’s stuff? ya… not touched.
  • I work with very petty people. It is ridiculous. I have to try VERY hard to watch what I say. Especially lately. I need an hour to be “off the record” so I can say my peace and feel better.
  • How do you discipline your toddler? I am looking for ideas here on effective ways other than re-direction (we do that already) and time-outs.
  • Mike is in one of his best friends’ wedding today. I do not want to go. He is marrying a stripper. (yes really) It is going to be a train wreck. And I will have to be alone with my in-laws.  Hopefully they have good wine.
  • My sisters are seriously the sweetest people and the best aunts ev-ah.  They were in California last week and brought Gianna back so much fun stuff – minnie mouse ears on a headband (she LOVES her new “boat”), toys, books, coffee mugs, clothes.
  • Life this week has been boring compared to the excitement of the beach.  I am still in vacay-hangover mode, and I am not sure I want to get out of it!


Join Danifred and the other left-over-ers for more bullet pointed goodness.

Stripper wedding and in-laws? You need to get "sick." Fer reals...

We use time-outs, but when things get really out of hand and they walk out of time-out repeatedly, they get a swat on the ass (and yes, I did just admit that on the internet...Heaven forbid)!

Oh...I also started giving stickers if they share without being told to or say thank you without being reminded.

I love a good stripper wedding. I hope the dress was booty-licious. (yes, I really just typed that!)
I've got nothing else for discipline. We do positive reinforcement for Tot because it seems to be the only thing that stops her from doing something- we ignore her "bad" behavior and constantly reinforce her good.
