I wouldn't truly be able to call our style of parenting UP, but we DO talk about consequences of actions, and good/bad choices. Alyssa is not naughty, but the behaviour choice she makes can be. We work with unconditional love and support, and use lots of hugs. We don't use time-outs, but talk about having some time to calm down and relax. Alyssa and I just made some Calm-Down Jars today to help her focus and relax when frustrated or tantruming.

What is UP ?
I haven't really had much of any issue with Emily as of yet, but I assume that will change once baby arives.
I do have a little boy who I will be looking after who has some major bahaviour issues. He is partly deaf so I am going to assume he is frustrated because he can't communicate his feelings ( he is 2 1/2 ) plus his parents over indulge him because of his disablity so he is very used to throwing a fit to get what he wants..
future - love the name you've chosen. pregnancy seems to go faster the more kids you have! less time to think about it all the time i think!
anna - how's things going?
i'm going out on friday night to a colleague's retirement do and my mum is keeping e and o and MIL keeping d as dan is working nights and that means saturday morning i get the 2nd lie in since owen was born i think i'm more excited by the prospect of a lie in than the night out
Maybe, I would be too. I haven't even been alone in the house for more than 15 mins since Emily was born. Let alone a chance to sleep in
Thanks, DH is in love with the first name ( his choice) as Harrison means " son of Harry" and his name is Henry which is close to Harry... son of Henry is Henderson.lol.
I wasn't in love with the name at first but it has grown on me.
Edwards is my beloved grandmother's maiden name ( baby is due on her birthday)
We haven't told any of our family the name yet.
We wanted to wait till we knew for sure what it was going to be that... still might change our minds yet !!!
I am excited for this weekend, we are having a 4D u/s Sunday. We did it with Emily and it was a great experience. It gives the older girls a chance to bond with the baby.. since they are all in school or living independently.
The grandparents were thrilled over it too
