“She was hysterical!”

We had the absolute day from hell with P1 yesterday. Anything we said to her just wasn’t good enough. She repeated over and over. Did things we told her not to do. And then when it came to bedtime… Oh didn’t she perform! Firstly, she took ages to persuade to go to the toilet. I had to repeat myself over …

Challenge Day#2

7:30AM – Ask P1 to get dressed using a very cheerful happy, excited level 0 voice in the hope that my happiness will have a positive reaction with her. It does the trick and she laughs happily as she goes to the toilet and lets me dress her. 7:40AM – P1 happily eats her Rice Krispies without any fuss. 8:00AM …
