No, not like that. I mean my cool points. My transition into the mum who’ll just make stuff is gaining speed and power. I made this dress with the help of Ms.Robin. And I’m rocking it like I bought it from a high-end designer. Yes, I’m THAT proud of this skirt.
Yes, I do think I’m badass for making this… and making this for HRH…
I made this one all on my own. Yes, I did…
I’m busted man. It seems that babies start to get cantankerous at around 8 months. After a great run of introducing solids and new flavours, HRH decided one day, out of the blue, it seems, that she didn’t like the food we were giving her. So we’re giving her finger foods. And she’s not really eating those. But she’s curious. Sort of. If you call squeezing the food and throwing it on the floor curious.
No… I know she is and she’s fine, but of course less solids has also led to more hunger, and more midnight wake up calls. We know it won’t be long before she gets back into it again, but I’m hoping this process doesn’t get too drawn out. But it is great watching her examine the food and (sometimes) attempt to eat it. And despite the mild angst it causes, I’m super glad that she knows what she wants and when she wants it.. which brings me to another point — the number of people who say that when I say that her personality is like mine is almost unnerving. Lol. I am most certainly not goat like. I just…like what I like… ah, forget it, you’re all right.
Oh, and I managed to squirt medicine in her eye, well, I had the squirter in her mouth, she moved in a stealthy stylee just as I pressed down. And squirt. In her eye. We both took a sharp breath and I had to laugh. I’m convinced she broke out a little smile too… until I finished the job. Heh.
Like mother, like daughter.
I’m just going to post these. The first article comes courtesy of the NYT. Nappy (diaper)-less children. Apparently it’s a new movement (pun intended). Here’s the start of the article:
When Jada Shapiro decided to raise her daughter from birth without diapers, for the most part, not everyone was amused. Ms. Shapiro scattered little bowls around the house to catch her daughter’s offerings, and her sister insisted that she use a big, dark marker to mark the bowls so that they could never find their way back to the kitchen….
But “elimination communication,” as the diaper-free method of child-rearing is called, is finding an audience in the hipper precincts of New York City.
Elimination Communication. I see. The best part of this article is the picture. The kid is PEED OFF (yes, pun intended) at being pictured with legs akimbo over a toilet. I’d be mad too.
And then there is this… from Huggies Brazil.
Since the first disposable diapers hit the market until now, parents haven’t needed an electronic device to tell them when their baby has wet himself. Huggies Brazil is attempting to address this perceived need with TweetPee, a fictional plastic device that attaches to a diaper and then tweets when your young one has urinated.
I thought it was a joke. But it’s totally for realz. Watch the video here. http://mashable.com/2013/05/08/huggies-tweetpee/
Today’s storytelling me was in a word awesome. We had so much fun singing and reading… I even taught them a new song and its meaning.
It’s funny how we don’t value our own knowledge until we…well…share it…
These kids were funny. The adults were very cool too! Special thanks to Dr. Shani McCoy Bayard, Joanne Griffith and SD Sharon Brooks for your support!
Looking forward to meeting again next month!
You gonna join us?! Its going to be so much fun…reserve your spot!
