Last week, two-year-old Rihana Bralic Leonard of Surrey, managed to get onto the balcony of her family's ninth floor apartment, climbed out onto the ledge and tragically fell to her death. This is a parent's worst nightmare!
Toddlers can be a mystery. They'll look at you, sometimes stare and you know they're in deep thought, but what are they thinking? One toddler blog may finally crack that mystery wide open! Although the blog isn't written by the tyke, it's gone viral with good reason.
On the premiere of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" Sunday night, it was revealed that Kourtney co-sleeps with her toddler, Mason (who is just adorable), while her baby daddy sleeps in another room. This is not so unusual, nor, do we think, such a crazy thing.
Waiting to become a mother is an intense state of being that is unique to expectant women, and it's a perilous task. We take the test, announce the news, marvel at our beautiful, bulging belly and then find ourselves in this awkward state: the state of the wait.
Whining is very common as little ones head into their second year. Babies who are beginning to toddle but not speaking much whine as a means of communication. They don't know that we find it irritating, and they wouldn't have the ability to communicate differently even if they did.
Well, this here is my first ever blog, so please bare with me as pour my heart and soul out :)
I am in my late twenties, dawning on 30 now! I am the mother to two beautiful little ladies and another on the way! My husband and I have been together for 10 years now, married for nearly five and he is desprete for his boy! So far the netball team is all he has received!
Well, so far 2 is both a challenging and wonderful age. I've told many people that I prefer 2 to 18-months. Although she uses the word "no" too much, she also understands consequences now. I can actually see her making the CHOICE to either obey me or not. She is so sweet, fun, loving, and cute. I love her little pigtails bouncing around as she dances and jumps (acutally skipping).
If you want to teach a child values, the best way to do it is by being good role models ourselves and by discussing the choices of everyday life. That means toddlerhood is young to "teach values" verbally, but a perfect time to start teaching values by modeling what you value.
The daily grind. Another day in paradise sans paradise. You get up at an indescribable hour to begin preparation for the day ahead. You quietly tiptoe around to try not to wake the sleeping children so that you can have those ever-sought-after moments of peace in the shower alone.
