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.

I have watched that show before too & it gives you some good ideas.

And I think those are some good goals you have! I know that it has made bedtime a lot easier now that we have the boys on a schedule.

I love setting goals. That is what I am doing today! You sound like you have some great goals to work on.

I like Super Nanny. I think I learn things when I watch it.

Happy Anniversary to you and Dylan!

I like watching Super Nanny once in a while too. I learned something on that show that I think I use quite a bit. She called it "engage and walk away." It's just like it sounds... get the child interested in something and then let her play so you can get something done. Now I just have to remind myself to engage and play with them more too. Being a Mom is such a balancing act.

i loved engage and walk away michelle! got that from SN too!

Oh candace welcome back to television! It is a joyous world.

Ryan doesn't like me to watch SN b/c he thinks it gives Julia ideas on how to be naughty. Hmm?

Sometimes I think that those bad kids on that show are only acting like that because there is a tv crew in their living room! Are there really kids that are that bad???

Russell hates it when I watch that show - those naughty kids drive him crazy.
