The real reason kids don’t listen.

I just read a very interesting article on Yahoo that I thought of sharing.
http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/parenting/quot-i-said-no-quot-the-real-reason-kids-dont-listen-437817/

It is a real well written article on why kids don’t listen. Mine really does not listen to anything that I have to say. I mean, I thought that as they get a little older, they would understand why we ask them to do the things we do. But noooooooooo… they really do not.
This article does shed some light on to why mine does not listen 🙂

Enjoy reading and all the best with your little one!

Play Station Portable

3 weeks back, my dad bought my son a portable play station aka PSP. While I am happy that my son has a grandparent to shower him with really expensive gifts while he is still young, I questioned the choice of gift. Dad was so excited that he bought it that he came home in a hurry while I was still at work and gave his grandson the PSP. You should have seen the joy on my son’s face!!

Again, while I am happy that my son has it, I am not too sure on the choice of the gift. After all, he is still 4 (5 in March) and PSP is for a little older kid. My son has seen a PSP with some of the older boys within our family friend circle and has always asked for one. My husband and I decided not to get him one as we felt he was too young. Instead we got him a Vtech Smile Pocket for Christmas 2008 – more age appropriate .

I was quite disappointed that my Dad got it without consulting me as I am really against a PSP for a 4-5 year old boy. After watching weeks of not-so-good behaviour, I pulled out the PSP and told my son that he can no longer have it as he is getting late for school, not listening to mommy. I told him that he can have it when his behaviour improves. Frankly, I hope he forgets about it.

Iphone and WordPress

Just downloaded the wordpress iPhone application!!!! Cool!!
Apparently, it’s a version 2.2 released on 8th feb 2010, from which I can reply to comments, and easily see comments pending to be approved.
I can even post directly from the mobile, edit pages. This works even with the iPod touch!

God!!! I better stop playing with the iPhone at work!!

Hello world!

Today at 11:09 PM, I have made the first step to chronicling my days as a mom to a 4-year-old. The plan is to make an entry on a daily basis….lets see how that works. Will try to though. Now my son is fast asleep, hopefully. My husband and I have been trying for a few months now to get my son to sleep in his own bed. At first, one of us would stay with him till he falls asleep and then tip toe to our now spacious bed. For a few blissful weeks, my son would sleep on his own but then after a while, sometime in the middle of the night, I noticed a little person between my husband and me fast asleep. After a few stern ” you are a big boy and you can sleep own your own like a big boy” talks, we had our spacious bed to ourselves again. But then today, my husband gave in to my son’s cute “stay with me, daddy, for some time”. This time my hubby is on his own in weaning my son off one of us staying with him till he falls asleep. I wish him all the best…
