As I shared in earlier posts, after some time where bedtime was always a struggle, we did a very light version of sleep training and it worked miracles for us. However, although bedtime was much better and without any crying, the bichin kept waking up really early and after some 5am waking we were a bit done with it. During the same week as we had those 5am morning, I did some bingewatching of one of my obsessions on Netflix and in this series, quite some sleep problems with toddlers were discussed as well. And that´s when I realized the two mistakes we had been making here.
Netflix…. The enemy of many mom´s productivity and to-do list. We were kinda late guests to the Netflix party but since we arrived I am hooked. Apart from starting some old-time favorites from scratch (Gossip Girl, don´t judge!), I recently re-discovered an obsession I have always had with a tv show, Nanny on Tour with Jo Frost.

Every time I saw a little boy grabbing in his own pants, I was a bit like what the? Why don’s his parents say something? And also, don’t they teach him that you shouldn’t do that in public? What kind of parenting is that? Let’s just touch ourselves the whole day and be happy or what?
Terrible twos, threenagers, and many other terms that basically describe the little terrorists our cute, innocent babies turn into as a toddler. The bichin is 19 months now and we are starting to notice that the terrible two are approaching: tantrums and drama are starting to get a bit too normal. Luckily, his daycare organizes “Parent school” every trimester and last week the topic was the famous toddler tantrum. Perfect timing! There was a pedagogue / child development specialist to explain tantrums, where they came from and how to deal with them, and what she explained on the different types of tantrums was definitely a game changer for me.
Yes, it´s Friday. Reason enough for wine right? But it´s also the 24th of February, the day that my sister was supposed to turn 28 years old. Unfortunately, we haven´t celebrated more than 18 birthdays with her together but that does not mean we have stopped celebrating on the 24th of February.
