Teething, it's not a party....

At the suggestion of my friend here's my post about teething. Among other 2 year toddler tortures.



I think that she found the title more amusing then what we are going through. At least I hope!



With our first son, I knew right away that teething wasn't going to be a party, but everything else that goes with it....really! The worse then normal diapers, the constant runny nose that I felt compelled to explain to everyone "no really, he doesn't have a cold he's teething". I… Continue

Who is the true "Spirited Child"?....

Post 4 in a series of 4



Okay, I'm a day or two late finishing this series, but I'm also striving to raise two toddlers to be the best that they can be, so work with me here.



Both of our children are true "Spirited Children". We have our 3 year old spirited introvert, and our 2 year old spirited extrovert.



"The Spirited Child" is a term I have heard used so loosely, and I have used loosely, many times. It's always been in the context of "he/she's spirited" to… Continue

Do children come with manuals?....

My partner and I feel like maybe the do, because our manual just arrived last Friday. Maybe a little late, but better late then never!



Between the discipline suggestions and reminders from my troops, and the discovery of a book titled "Raising Your Spirited Child". We feel like maybe children DO come with manuals. When persistent enough in finding out what they need, what their triggers are, what we need as parents, and ultimately what we need as a family to be… Continue

How long does it take to put your "mommy pants" back on after they've been missing?....

Well for me it took until 1:00 p.m. the following day. They boys went to school and I parked and talked on the phone with my cousin who had been calling for the past two days to check on me.



I had heard about a book "Raising Your Spirited Child". We've always know that both of our boys are spirited, but what did the really mean? Anyone that knows me, has heard me say more then once "I am obsessed with the need to understand what is triggering their poor behavior to begin with". I'm… Continue

Where do our "mommy pants" go when they are completely missing, like socks from the dryer?....

I'm not sure, but they were missing for a couple of days. Flat our missing. I looked everywhere. In the wash, in the closet, under the bed. Nowhere to be found.



However, my 3 year old did find his "no" mouth again. HHHHMMMM, just about the time that I lost my "mommy pants". I wonder which came first?



We spent two days going at it like a couple on the brink of divorce! Time-outs did nothing but make him cry and frustrate me because his "no" mouth just returned a few hours… Continue

Who decides when miracle days fall from the sky?....

How does this happen, and who decides when this happens? Is it the parenting Gods/Goddesses? Is it as simple as a good night of sleep for all of us on the same night?



We had such a rough day on Sunday. We were cooped up in extra cold weather. READ: 8 - 24 degrees! Well beyond the "they're boys bundle them up and throw them out" advice. Plus that means that I'm out there too....NOT! They were tired of their toys, we were tired of tap dancing to keep them entertained. You know, puzzles… Continue
