I guess they think its a treat my kids weren't allowed anything at all till they were over three and once they turned three my mil and fil used to have a hidey hole down the side of the setee filled with milky buttons and chocolate bars and lollipops . Every time we were there they insisted on feeding the kids with crap it used to make me mad esp if it was before dinner or lunch . Also none of my kids have fillings and I want it to stay that way . Sadly my mil and fil have both passed away
I don't know how I will strike a balance. I definitely have food issues. I am a sugar addict. I try to make sure C has a healthy diet. I try not to give her too much processed food but it's hard when I'm home alone and have to cook. She can handle about 10 minutes of letting me cut things up and then she will crawl over and climb up my leg and cry. She is not sleeping during her naps unless she is held. So I've been taking some short cuts like jarred pasta sauce. I've definitely improved from my diet of Oreos
I'm trying to strike a balance between banning junk food completely (making it too exciting for him when he does have it) and keeping it healthy.
C is doing great thanks Indi, although you wouldn't know to look at him. He's still a madman in the bath and on Monday night, just as I said for the twentieth time "no you sit down in the bath!", he fell and bumped his head on the side of the bath. On tues, nursery rang me to say he'd fallen and bumped the same bit. On Wednesday, he got his nursery photo taken I'm hoping they don't share the photos with social services...
Oh, and big breakthrough on Sunday, he stayed at granny's for the first time! And I survived!!
He's still not walking, it feels like he's been cruising round the furniture for years but I don't think it'll be long. I was also just saying today, he doesn't seem to be progressing his speech v quickly, he's been saying his favourite "duck!!" And "cat!" For months, but nothing new.
How is N? And all the other babies? Can we see some photos?
I have to warn you all....because I'm sure it will become apparent soon enough... I am a terrible typist and will make all kinds of typos, plus my iPad does all these weird autocorrects, no if any of my posts make no sense, I apologise!
I am absolutely delighted to see some of you guys have babies a bit older than mine (Lana is almost 11 months) because I am the least confident parent ever so you might be able to help me out now and then! (If that's ok)
Have to say Conina - what a gorgeous smile your little man has! Love looking at baby pics!
