Potty Learning Without Sweets Or Reward Systems

blackheartsandbliss:

The title sounds like punishment, but I’m sick of this stuff! I’m sick of toys, sick of stickers, sick of candy, sick of starting habits we have to break later, sick of reading countless articles and finding…

You were sent my way. I have articulated your entire post in my head so many times. Thank you! My mom did this way w/ the four of us at 13-15 months… Not a single reward because darn it, if I he gets one, I best get one, too.

In fact, this is how the rest of the world does it… and way earlier!

Kinda warm…

So, we went to the park:

-Stumped on puddles
-Swing time galore, accompanied by extreme loud laughter
-Discovered mud
-joined a kid and his Dad playing soccer (all while squealing of delight)
-chased three adorable chichuahuas
-found a handball & threw it back to the kids’ court
-ran all over the wet leaves on the grass
-refused to leave 3 times
-momma had to carry a screaming baby out of the park!
-Quickly distracted him w/ the ambulance heading to the hospital

Got home to a content, tired and hungry baby!

He was dirty & I never felt prouder! A dirty kid is my new pride! Yeah!!!

He ate a ton & passed out at 7:40pm!

Yeah—that was an awesome TGIF!!!!

Love this kid!

Ain’t a fan of Naomi Campbell, but girl made me laugh

Naomi Campbell’s interview is hilarious.

"That’s Anna Wintour choice to put them on the cover of her magazine… who’s to question it!"

My take is that Anna Wintour needed some extra cash and some bigger audience and publicity.  Reach the masses and give them what they want. Next cover, you’ll go back to high fashion and use the cash to keep on printing the thick magazine. Smart woman you are and smart corporate move Anna Wintour, smart move!

Who’s the real hustler now K&K?

LOL!

New Mommy stuff…

Got a call from the events office to see if I would be attending the Hispanic Women’s Luncheon tomorrow somewhere in the Bronx!

I was invited, but the email said if you’re coming please call for a ticket.

It didn’t say: you’re invited, please confirm “yes” or “not” attending.

Everybody in that list is type A and follows instructions. The poor Administrative Assistant is now left with making cold calls because her director chose the wrong narrative in her email.

Ugh.  No, thanks. I haven’t got time to attend a meeting 2 hours by subway from my job site. Thanks, but no thanks. 

And, it’s confirmed, I have turned down participating in talks, panel discussions, Luncheons, my Teaching Adjunct gig, Central meetings, fun events for work, PD’s and awesome conferences for the past 3 semesters. YET I haven’t got a single sign of worry about my career.

I’m busy working and making sure all my time out of work is spent with my family.

It’s not a sacrifice, it’s an honor!

When I’m here, I’m here 100%, but 9-5pm only.  

The rest is not up for negotiation for a LONG time.

My union has worked really hard and I paid them a lot every check to ensure my working rights are protected. I ain’t mad!

Thanks for the privilege to make these choices and care for my loved ones.  Gotta love this job security and appreciate it dearly!

There's Something Absolutely Wrong With What We Do To Boys Before They Grow Into Men

pregnantnotfat:

How three words make a devastating impact in the lives of little boys.

A friend sent me this and I was blown away by it. Whether or not you have a son, you should take a look.

Relevant! It reminds me of my little speech when we found out Baby D. would be a boy. I told my family that he would be respected and loved regardless of his sexual preference. And, to avoid “he’s a boy…then” remarks!.
