First Day

Wednesday Kaitlynn attended her first day of "school". She is taking a class at the ECC called Kids in the Kitchen. She really enjoyed class. She made pizza, a fruit cookie, ice cream, veggie dip and a fruit lollipop. In the first class, they also made a placemat and have to set their place at the beginning of every class.

Later that evening, Kaitlynn and I went to MawMaw's. MawMaw watched Kaitlynn while I attended a seminar at the ECC titled "Why Do They Do What They Do?" This was a good seminar and gave me a different perspective on things. It basically discussed how you (the parent) need to figure out the goals for your child's behaviors and then act based on each goal. The speaker discussed play and limit setting. I am glad I attended as I received some valuable information.

Monday I started watching a new baby, Aidan. He is 9 months old. Kaitlynn says he is her baby brother. She also calls Olivia her baby sister. She gets mad if you tell her they are not her baby brother / sister and they are just friends.

I attended a seminar at the ECC titled Love, Laughter and Limits. It is a 4 week seminar that meets once a week. I think I am going to like the class, I just wish the ECC and P.A.T. in general incorporated Attachment Parenting more into their philosophy. I am not saying that A.P. is the only parenting philosophy or the correct one, I just wish they would incorporate all philosophies in their seminars / visits, etc.
