Motherhood Monday-Stubbornness and Walking

This week has been a crazy one.  I have 2 thoughts for you, today.

  1. How on earth can a one-year-old be so dang stubborn?!  We have been having night time issues for some time, now (more on this later), and I've started a new method.  Last night was the first night I didn't cuddle Baby to sleep.  I watched a snippet of Supernanny and her technique called Sleep Separation, a fall asleep method meant for younger children.  You lay them down and sit next to their bed, looking straight ahead, to keep from making eye contact.  When they get up, you lay them back down and tell them it's bed time.  Eventually, you just lay them down, without saying a word.  And you do it over and over until he falls asleep.  My son didn't cry, which made it easier emotionally, but he is so persistent.  It took the child on the show 25 minutes.  Mine?  An hour and a half.  Let's hope you know what you're talking about, Jo Jo.
  2. My son started walking!  I can't believe it.  Aside from his spontaneous hugs and kisses, it's the cutest thing in the world.  I tried to get a video for you, but I can't seem to get a good one.
