Here are some things I want to remember:
1. We officially started the process of getting rid of the paci today. For months now Langley has only used a paci at nap time and bed time. I had it clipped on her sleep sack. Step one was to unclip the paci. If she loses it, she doesn't get it back and hopefully learn [quickly] how to fall back asleep or just relax without it. She slept great all night last night but nap time today was a fail. I think I'm going to do this for a week and then cut the paci so it feels weird [unpleasant] in her mouth. My goal is to be paci-free in a month.
2. I can officially be mom of the year because I tried, and failed miserably, to trim her bangs. Here's the story: yesterday afternoon we were both in unpleasant moods. I just kept watching her rub her eyes and try to get the hair out of her face. Apparently I lost my mind and grabbed the scissors. I butchered those bangs. They are too short and uneven. At least I stopped and didn't try to "fix" them, I have heard way too many horror stories about this. I was already thinking "heather's going to kill me!" and just waiting on Josh to make a reference to dumb & dumber. So, I'm mom of the year and Langley is rocking some sweet bangs. I did my best today to pull them back, comb them over, and spray them down. Lesson learned. Pictures tomorrow :-)
3. My man got confirmation today that he is done with his Master's Degree! I am so proud of him!! At least one of us is using our master's :-) He has an MA in Coaching and Athletic Administration!!
