Family Friday (vol. 4): Daycare Enhances My Parenting  As Shea currently screams bloody murder in her crib passionately fighting nap time I sit here and think how this isnt the case when shes at daycare. According to her teachers she finishes lunch gets cleaned up and walks to her mat. She lays down and waits to be covered up with a blanket. She will sleep about 2 hours and wake-up rested and happy.  Since she started daycare at 3 months I was never 100% in love with dropping off my baby for…

Family Friday (vol. 12): Kicking the Bottle    We did it. Mr. Prevention did it? Anyway we survived. Were on day 6 without a single bottle and surprisingly I havent removed them from the kitchen counter and into hiding for baby #2.  Did I plan to wean Shea from the bottle? Not reeeeeeally.

And in my silly mommy head I rationalized that bottles…
