Two weeks ago I wrote about parenting advice that just doesn’t apply to me, or most people living more than a few hours from a major city centre.
On the other hand, there are lots of great parenting tips, and advice that does apply.
Among them: potty training, starting solids, discipline, play time, cutting baby’s fingernails and that most important milestone: transitioning from crib to toddler bed.
I’m a reader and a researcher. That means I research the hell out of any new thing coming my way.
So, like potty training, starting solids, discipline, play time and cutting Sylvia’s fingernails, I read up on the crib-to-bed thing. I read a lot. I read every single headline about toddler sleep habits I’ve seen in the past six months. I’ve actively sought out articles on how to make the switch as easy as possible.
Then the time came for Sylvia to make the switch… and it was a complete non-issue. Seamless. Easy.
I know. I KNOW. She’s two now and could completely change her tune in a week. But let me bask in this easy glory for a few days at least, okay?
Soooo, I’m taking a page out of Laurie’s book who is in turn taking her cue from Momalom this week… Five for Five is a week-long blogging event whereby bloggers write every day on each of five topics.
