he sucks!

Sonday was well worth waiting a day for this week. Oliver mastered an important new skill at school today. He sucks!!! On a straw!!! Since he started taking his lunch to school I have packed a milk box (with straw attached) and a cup for his teachers to put the milk into. His teachers and I all tried to show him how to operate a straw but he insisted on blowing, and making a huge mess with the bubbles in a full milk box. We gave up and forgot about it for a while, like four months or so. 

When I took him to school today I suggested it might be time to give it another go. We did not make any attempts at home. I was pleasantly surprised when his teacher reported total success! He sucks now!

I am thinking this might be the way to go with the potty too. Forget it entirely for months. Then bring it up again. Oh wait. We tried that already. Could be worth doing again. Hmmm.

Wise parenting. All of you must have such a sense of accomplishment.
