We didn’t really go anywhere this weekend. G has been having constant diarrhea and was also running a slight fever the last few days. The fever’s gone but her stomach’s still a bit tender. The good news is that i think she might be toilet trained as a result! She’s been telling us everytime she needs to go to the toilet, and have been ‘sans-diapers’ the whole time she’s home. So far, no accidents *fingers crossed* Whether it’s down to this spell of diarrhea, or my parents diligent toilet training, i’m really hoping this is IT!
Here’s what we did this weekend :
G insisted on having a photoshoot with her Ginger Miao Miao
This is her usual hyperactive self!
We took out my stash of new stuff and did some scrapbooking together
close up of the LO – the reflectivity of that hambly doesn’t photograph well 😛An altered USB packaging turned pencil holder!
That’s pronounced – Cute – tee….
Started this flannel and cotton quilt inspired by THIS.
I thought i’d try my hand at hand-sewing the lines – it’s taking longer than expected, but i quite like the effect!
remember my wierd looking bag – it’s completed! Now i just need to devise a way of carrying it – maybe a wrist strap?
*eta : have also started being quite firm with G. We have tried the negotiating route for far too long i feel, and this weekend, she’s really pushing all the buttons to produce 2 exasperated parents! We finally tried what the nanny books say – no more choices, firm reprimands, naughty corner, ignoring her cries – and yesterday was a series of recurrent tantrums and showdowns, but surprisingly, after trying a tantrum ONCE this morning, the rest of the day has passed by really fruitfully! No more wingeing, no more tantrums, just a cooperative happy child – I do hope it’s going to last!
