As Seen In My Life

Pookah and I have been together for the last 2 + weeks.  Today, he is at daycare and I am going to sleep in an empty house. Peacefully. I love love LOVE my boy. But I just know I can’t be a full time stay at home mom. I would love to be able to stay at home…but still send him to daycare…… At least part time. 🙂

But anyway, we’ve had our struggles these last few weeks until I discovered all the keywords that they MUST use at daycare to get him to do things.  Like eat lunch for instance.  I had been saying “Are you hungry?” To which he would say “No.”  The child just wouldn’t eat lunch. Until one day, out of the blue I said “Let’s have lunch”.  “OK” was his reply.  And he ate. No fuss. Wow. A-maaaa-zing( as my Pookah would say).



And He Eats!!

    Lol well he ate. I know being at home is a job itself. It’s not for everyone and it’s not easy.

    I was always told: never ask a question that you won’t be okay with the answer. Kids are funny that way. But I find the same thing is true with my daughter when it’s time to eat. Always have to ask the right question.

    As a former preschool teacher and nanny of a 3yr old and 5yr old, I love this post! The children I nanny for answering everything I ask with a yes or no ma’am. Their parents can’t get an mmhmm out of them. 🙂 Most of the children I have worked with acted completely different from me than they did with their parents. I wonder if your pookah is the same way! 😀

    That is what they told me at Zekey’s daycare, too. Don’t give them options. Tell them what we are about to do. I keep forgetting, though… Anyway, girrrrrl, your pictures are AMAZING. Seriously. TEACH ME!
