I knew it was inevitable. This isn’t my first time with a toddler. It’s just a part of Baby G’s growing up process, but it’s starting: the terrible two’s. If I say the word “no”, I might as well be torturing him. If I hold him in my arms to indicate a behaviour is not acceptable, he starts pinching me to let go. Such is toddler-dom. You know what I say? Bring it, Baby G. I’m ready for you. Even though XXXXY Syndrome is something I’ve never dealt with before, I’ve done the terrible two’s and I’ll do them again. But first, an update:
Valentine’s Day is synonymous with showing the people in your life how much they mean to you, how much you appreciate them, how much you love them. It could be your spouse, your friends, your kids, or even your dog. The list of the people you love could be endless.
But are you on the list of people you love?
As you might know, I’ve recently taken the plunge, moving Niagara Mommy from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. Well, so far, the site looks pretty much the same, and it’s only going to get better. But in order for that to happen, I’m wondering if I might ask a teeny weeny favour of you. For me to know exactly who I’m writing for, (’cause on my end, it’s a total mystery), I need to know a bit more about you, my amazing and tremendously awesome reader! Don’t worry, it’s nothing creepy, but it will help me hone in on exactly who those page views represent. That means posts that actually matter to you, and not just general randomness that pops through my head.
If you’re up for it, I’d be so grateful. Click that link below there, answer those six questions and submit. Thanks so much, and as usual, thanks for reading Niagara Mommy.
Have you ever noticed that after you become a parent, Valentine’s Day just doesn’t do it for you anymore? The flowers, the chocolate, the stuffed animals (like we don’t have enough of those around here)…Valentine’s Day just loses all of its relevance when you have kids.
It’s the snotty-nose time of year, guys. Yup, and Niagara Girl’s had her first sick days off school. In the spirit of managing the mucus (and keeping your sanity), I’ve come up with a few simple, non-screen-time suggestions that will keep the munchkin occupied and resting, and hey, you might have some fun too.
