Today was day two in Project Jimmy Drink. I am failing miserably at putting the sippy cup in his mouth every 10 minutes but it’s still more than usual and sometimes he doesn’t reject the cup. I am nervous that he is just giving up his fight. But, maybe this is a fight he should give up? Arrr. I hope this doesn’t scar him for life.
I am taking psychology 101 and it is putting bad ideas in my head and I am barely past page 10 of my textbook. Why must I learn about all the dead psychologist? Do they really care if I know their names or not? I feel like I am reading competitive obituaries from the early 1900s. He founded X and was great. He founded Y, rejected X and was greater…etc etc.
I want Jimmy to stop rejecting the cup because he is figuring it out and not because I am evil and forcing him to do these crazy exercises that are making him miserable. Being a parent is hard.
