Popping in for a quick Janulicious fix in the afternoon ...
I'm reading Unconditional Parenting right now and am loving it. Now granted, I really like the basic philosophy (DH and I are both huge Kohn fans) so I may be biased. Still, I am finding it so enlightening and I'm noticing little way that I am inadvertantly more controlling than I'd like to be, etc.
I just need to make more time to READ it!!! I'm only on Chapter 4, and have had it for weeks... bah. The trouble is that when I want to read it there are too many distractions, and when there aren't distractions I'm too pooped to concentrate on it as much as I'd like. We also have "Punishing by Rewards" (or something like that) and DH read that a year or two ago and loved it. I am so glad that we're on the same page as far as this stuff goes.
Laura, it sounds like Megan's eval went great!! Woo hoo to you, you breastfeeding Goddess!! Kind of sad when the doctors just ass
ume that babies are on formula.
So funny, at lunch today Tess is just munching on her mac & cheeze and I listen carefully.... what's that I hear? She was quietly singing the Hare Krishna mantra to herself! :LOL I have it on one of my playlists and, well, I guess she likes it!
We went over to visit with my friend this afternoon, and her older boy was asleep so Tess was pretty happy to just play by herself and ogle the babies a bit. Nice to just sit and chat with someone ~ she's pretty crunchified, so we tend to have lots to talk about. Oh, another bonus, she gave me *FOUR* bags of miscellaneous cloth diapers & wraps! WOO HOOO!!!! They're moving in less than a month
and don't want to schlep too much stuff cross-country, I guess. It was Christmas for me today! (and for Miss B's tushie!)
I made drunken noodles for dinner tonight and oh they smell good.... almost time to dine, I think!
