As I have now seen Toy Story more times than any other movie I have ever seen, this moment has stayed with me, and helped me make an important decision:
I will not be Sid's mom.
My boys will not behave like Sid.
(1) Overt sugar, including Pop Tarts, will be a treat, not a daily occurrence.As it seems that a toddler's world is influenced primarily by example, these rules apply to me first, and to Zeke second. This was day two of my resolve. I had no idea how much I relied on chocolate to compensate for fatigue.
(2) Soda pop will have no harbor in my home.
Coming next week: preliminary reports on Ben's sleep training!
