My oldest daughter, Leilah absolutely LOVES cooking. Whether it's helping me in the kitchen, or pretending in her own kitchen with play food, she is a little chef. I love her interest in cooking and always wanting to be involved, so I try to find ways to let her help and get a little messy along the way.
For quite some time, Leilah has been an extremely picky eater. I know that a majority of kids go through this at some point in their lives. It is a part of becoming more independent and wanting to be in control. I am totally all for her trying out her independence and learning to do things on her own. But, when it comes to her having bad eating habits, I want to do do whatever I can to prevent it.
My kiddos are polar opposites when it comes to a lot of things. But, I had a really rough time with Leilah in the early days. She was very colicky and difficult to soothe. These are my methods and products I have come to value the most after dealing with her cranky, newborn butt. 😉
Anyone with kids knows the struggle. You have a count down in your head until bedtime so you can finally have that alone time. You've kept the kids alive another day. You want to check out and do your own thing. We've all been there.
I started changing up my days to keep myself more on track, keep the house a little neater, and make me feel much more productive at the end of the day.
It was a tough two weeks. But, the consistency paid off in the end. This method set up Leilah to be such a great sleeper!
I wouldn't change a thing.
