Do you ever watch this show? We have been without television since February of last year, but we are actually able to pick up the local channels here in Cleveland. So, I watched Supernanny last night while Dylan was putting Sadie to bed.
There was a little 3 yr. old girl on this episode that threw the worst tantrums. It reminded me so much of Sadie. But I kept thinking, "oh, that's a lot like Sadie...except Sadie's not THAT bad." True, Sadie may not be as horrific as that little girl on the show, but I was able to learn a few things & may even try to catch the show in the future so perhaps I can learn a few more things.
Here are my goals:
*Spend more one-on-one time with Sadie. This is especially important since Claire has joined the scene. I think Dylan & Sadie would benefit from this as well.
*Include her with caring for the needs of the baby. Have her get the diaper for me. Help me dress her, etc.
*Start working (again) on getting Sadie to go to bed on her own, so that Dylan & I can have some time together in the evenings. I think we need to introduce something into the routine that will help her calm down & unwind before going to bed. HELLO! Reading a book together.
Anyway, just some thoughts I needed to get down.
