These are two very stubborn individuals! Of course Heaven know thier parents are pretty darn stubborn as well. Chris this week has been helping me w/the transition to whole milk. Neither is taking it well. Rachel is stubborn and Cally just hates change. We have been spending hours trying to entice them to drink this stuff and nothing is working. Now w/Harmon he was underweight so instead of milk I went to NextStep formula and the transition wasn't until 18 mos. and by than he was ready.
I think as parents we become so determined that we have to do things a certain way (i.e. potty training by 2 1/2 yrs, no pacis after 6 mos, etc.) but sometimes our kids have other plans. There are some things I don't bend on like the no soda thing but there are some things not worth fighting for. So tonight we have decided life is to darn hard to be crying of non-draken milk. Tomorrow I will go to Target, load up on the generic version of NextStep and call it a day for a few more weeks. We will complete the bottle to sippy transition and in a couple of months try the milk thing again.
