Parenting Practice

The DH and I have been having on and off conversations about our approaches to discipline and parenting methods in general as of late. Even though we don't plan to have little people any sooner than two years from now, it's fun to talk through things that may come up in the future now, while we don't have a screaming child to deal with. I know you can't truly prepare to be a parent - every child is different and you could very well find you're different than you thought you were - but I think having a plan and revising it is better than having no plan at all.

Lucky for us, we have a 3-year-old our friend's let us practice on. (He's everyone's first child as he's currently the only child in the group.) The DH and him have a grand time together - most of it spent trying to get the boy to eat as he's very easily distracted. Last night we had the pleasure of watching him while his parents had a date night and this is what dinner looked like...

PS: DH made the kid's dinner, so his mac and cheese was edible. ;-)
