I'm convinced DD is going to be a line backer when she grows up. Her waking me up is just part of our routine. When she was in her crib she was say "mommy" a few times until I came in there. Now she climbs in my bed and wakes me up with cuddles, but I've always also worked either 2p-10p or 530p-130a her entire life. With that schedule any extra sleep I can get while she's sleeping is great. And she knows when she wakes up it's our time. When I go to work it's hers and daddy time.

except for the working and swing bouncer thing we are alot alike. i have given my 13 month old an oatmeal c***m p*e as a snack b4. she is still breastfed and has my milk for breakfast b4 we wake up. i do alot of buddy fruits that have no preservatives and she loves green beans and peas so i give her those without salt or butter. she nurses inbetween. sometimes i make her and me an omlette and we share it for breakfast. i just try to balance healthy food with some bad so she learns that bad is ok in moderation. i dont see having left over chicken alfado for breakfast. try tossing some veggies in with the chicken and sauce.

the whole cookie thing for breakfast got to me he needs to eat healthier. snacks are fine as long as they eat a real meal first. i see nothing wrong with the movies i always have disney junior on while my 2 are awake. im not sure i would let my 2 year old read the pregnancy books with me i am always reading him books but kid books i think there to young to really know about all that stuff. i would also definitly break him off the swing and bouncer. we can all give you advice but we dont know you or your son only you do and you know what works best for the 2 of you. if you feel like your son is fine and as healthy as can be and happy then its fine. you know your son and you know what he needs

To each their own, IMO. My kids eat really healthy for the most part, but friday night is pizza night so sat morning is pizza left overs for breakfast, and in the school week my kids usually have a pop tart or toaster strudle thingy, something quick to eat, they are like me and dont like breakfast all that much and wont eat till around 10am even if they get up at 6am on a weekend they are not hungry till 10 sometimes 11am, so they will have an actual lunch instead of breakfast. lol

I really do not see the huge deal about a cookie with breakfast if it's really not the norm. We have monthly Cinnabon Sundays and a cinnamon roll is WAY more unhealthy than a single oreo.

You're a little late. She addressed all these things already and said the breakfast isn't a normal thing

My son watched his brother be born at 2. He's 3 an knows the facts of how a baby grows and how she will come out. He's seen birth videos and is adamant that he wants to be in the room when "sister kabooms your belly" and all.



I don't think the books are an issue at all. Some kids would not deal well with it, but I'd bet that the vast majority would be totally fine with more information and more knowledge.

And if more were properly educated earlier this teen pregnancy epidemic may slow down.

If I'd known my body more, I sure as hell would have protected myself better in those early years! Man, all that info would have been great! I probably wouldn't have had sex when I did and with whom I did.

Sugar is sugar is sugar. They all do the same thing.



Make you hyper to burn it off.
Turn into fat when you don't.

There are good sugars and bad sugars :-) but I'm not going to argue with you.

I think that would be a good assumption for most girls and even boys I think.

However all sugar ends up in the same place. If you ate a diet of all apples, you'd still get fat.

So true. thats why us people need , oh whats it called again? Oh ya a BALANCED DIET. lol Even babies and kids. Idk maybe I over do it cause I actually follow the guidelines for canadas food guide on food serving intake for my 12 month old.

Just the olde kids get a shitty breakfast since they wont eat in the morning at all. lol
