supermom

Liam is weaned off formula and the bottle.
Graham and Liam are off pacifiers (except car and sleeping).
The kitchen is reorganized.
My clothes have been sorted and purged.
I made an impromptu trip to the city yesterday with the boys.
The house is still a mess.
I have yet to actually make dinner this week.

Okay, okay. Being home on winter break hasn't turned me into Supermom, but at least I get to put all the baby bottle stuff in storage! Oh man. I'm excited about that.

Time off is AWESOME!

I was just thinking today how Bennett is 16 months and I have totally forgotten to wean him from the bottle. Probably time to do the paci too. Rats!!! I'm glad you haven't been cooking--I already don't know how you got so much done.

How did you wean from bottle??? I think Keilin will be easy, but Dominic hates his sippy cups...

How do you do naps? I'm fighting with mine to do 2 naps/day or one long nap even (we're lucky to get 2 hrs). Sigh...

You are supermom - I didn't accomplish anything over the break!

We didn't wean Graham from the bottle until he was about 16 months. I was on a mission over the break to make my life easier. Washing those blasted bottles (or trying to find a clean one in the middle of the night) had to go. :) It helped that Liam was a champ at figuring out the sippy cups right away. Graham had so much trouble using them, which was part of the reason we didn't switch him sooner.

(Mara--I just took it away one day and never showed it to him again. It actually works. And he wasn't a fan of milk or coconut milk, but he loved water. So he just drinks water from his sippy cup. Juice sometimes.)

I always put my kids down for their first nap 1 1/2 to 2 hours after they wake up in the morning. Then they always wanted an afternoon nap, too. I keep this going as long as humanly possible. :) This got a lot harder to do once I started taking them to daycare, but we keep it up on the weekends. My kids are good sleepers. I'm not sure how much it has to do with me. PS--I got so much done over the break thanks to the long naps and this amazing thing called the TV... I know. I'm an awesome mom. :)
