Jaxon successfully completed one week of sleeping in his own bed and happily picked out the Star Wars blaster he had been eyeing at Target! It was so nice not being woken up every night to two little eyes staring at me face to face!
We made his chart for week two and he is off to a great start! We used the “Boo to You” party as a reward this week since we already have tickets and are planning to go anyway. I also added “eating without complaining to the list” this week. I was a little bit more lenient with this one so he is allowed to get three X’s on the calendar but any more than three and he doesn’t get to attend the party! (Poor Brent will be sitting in the hotel room with him while Carter and I have a blast) Not complaining about eating is a huge issue in our house so hopefully this will help him eat what he is given without causing a fuss.
I will admit that I was always the person that said…”I will never do that with my kids” but since I have broken at least 1346 of those “I will not’s” I figure this one can be added to list. I will be the first to tell you that since parenting doesn’t come with a manual, sometimes you just have to make the rules up as you go!
