Misc. Monday Thoughts…

Posted by Sandra on December 31, 2007


Yup.  Still pregnant.  I have registered Ayla for Kindergarten, purchased an internal microphone and speakers so she can interact with the children that are not as stubborn as she is! 😀

 Some questions have come up about AP parenting and possible “spoiling” of babies and toddlers on one of my chat room boards.  I want to reiterate that AP ultimately makes a child MORE secure in their independence and less spoiled, in the long run!  This is one of the reasons my daughter will go into the backyard, for example, and safely play for hours by herself – it’s wonderful for me (the back of my house is all windows, I can see her regardless of where I am downstairs – it’s so nice to have “me” time and know she’s 100% safe and sound!!!  Knock on wood, I’ve never had to take this child to the doc or ER when she’s playing alone, she’s so careful and smart) and even better for her – she explores, plays, jumps, laughs, interacts with our dogs, and is learning so much.  And I don’t have to be right beside her for her to be safe and happy.  THIS is the definitive AP.  And remember, AP is not a cut-in-stone philosophy – you pick and choose which works for you.

I wanted to point out the CIO information as well – it may be on my blog links as “older blogs”, but please remember to re-read and refresh.  Some of my new friends are having their babies now and I wanted to ensure you had the information to make an educated choice based on the physical and psychological – UNDISPUTABLE – facts of what happens when a baby is abandoned to cry alone simply in order to “train” them.  Remember – you are a parent 24 hours a day!


No big plans for New Year’s, obviously.  Hey, maybe I’ll have the first baby of 2008.  I get a box of diapers or something, right? 😀

Hugs and kisses to my friends and family – have a safe and happy NYE, please PLEASE get home okay if you’re going out – and I’ll let you know if Ayla is optiong to give us our tax deduction this year or next!   Love you all!
