#23 - I am a bad parent

Yes I admit it I am a bad parent. Ever since the boys have been in cribs bed time has not been fun. (I guess we are paying for the fact that they were awesome going to bed when they were younger... pay now or pay later has always been my mantra! :) )

So I admit it I have resorted to bribery. Tonight they got a glow in the dark moon. If they are good they get another planet tomorrow and if they are bad one goes away. So I am a bad parent what can I say. We do what we need to, to get through the day I suppose! :)

What is up with this cleaning thing? The boys have decided that if there is a mess they must vacuum it up (back-noon-noon as they call it). Shall we start a pool to see at what age it stops? I am thinking I may make it to 5 if I am lucky!

The baby is driving me crazy. My ped is obsessed with getting babies off bottles by one year. We did it with the boys and it worked out ok. The baby not so much. I finally gave her a bottle today as she has been on a drink strike for the past almost 2 weeks since we took her bottle away. That child has the will of a warrior! She has also taken to screaming near meal times, just for fun I think. She sits at my feet and grabs at my toes and hollers at me! (She heard the boys hollering one day and decided to do the same! Uggg). I think this one is going to give me a run for my money! :) Like I say good thing she is cute!

Not a bad parent! I think it's a good idea. :)

As for the bottle. Chicka still takes hers. When she's ready? That's when we'll say bye bye. Besides, it's the only way I can get her to drink milk.

Ohh - I may have to borrow that idea!! I love it! :) My kids *might* behave for glow stars.

Drink strike, huh? Ya - Logan doesn't like milk at all. He loves using the sippy cup though (water with a splash of juice). If I put milk in it he looks at me with disgust and throws it as far as he can. Nice, huh? ;)

And I say that too - "It's a good thing babies are cute..." heh :)
