    when the grasshopper becomes the sensei

    October 9, 2006

    I wrote an article over at Minti about how to avoid the terrible 2’s by using redirection rather than always telling The Boy “no.”  As I discussed it with Derek, he mentioned that mabe I had it a little off.  Not unlike Derek to tell me I’m wrong AFTER I write an article. 

    D:  Babe, he uses redirection on us.
    K:  What do you mean?
    D:  Haven’t you noticed lately that he draws your attention in one direction and that as soon as he has you confused, he runs off in the other direction to do exactly what he isn’t supposed to do?
    K:  Really?
    D:  Oh, yeah, he’s playing us.  Watch.

    With that the boy gave his dad a big kiss and a hug.  As dad was enjoying the hug, The Boy leaned over and drank from dad’s glass.  And with that, all of his gatorade was gone. 

    This kid is going to be the death of me.

    Swing over to Minti

    October 2, 2006

    I have found a great new website run by my friend Rachel.  It’s called Minti (and it’s free) and they have provided a place for me to have it out with my sister over her wacky parenting style.  I’m at kristen.minti.com.  It’s an all-out sister war.  So if you want to witness the carnage, head on over there to check it out.  While you are there, leave a comment (even you, my favorite lurkers–you know who you are).  If you leave comments or rate my articles, I become more popular than my sister and my ranking gets higher than hers.  ‘Cause you never get miss an opportunity for a little sister rivalry.
