Update No. 1
Remember in January when I started a new schedule working nights? Well, I failed to tell you that only lasted a month. Things didn't work out for a variety of reasons so I went back to my early morning schedule. Now, I'm moving again, working a swing shift starting at noon.
This is good for a number of reasons. I'm moving into a job that I am really excited about. I get the same amount of time with Peanut as I have now but just in the mornings. I will still get to see the husband since I should be home before he goes to bed. I also will have the flexibility to work some days when I need to. I'm quite pleased with this.

The pacifier. Oh the pacifier. We are being strict about paci at night-night only. It is Not Easy. We've had a couple of pretty big meltdowns over the paci but I think it is getting better. Sometimes when she asks for it and we tell her no, she is completely cool with it and goes about her business. Sometimes I can distract her into not even thinking about it after she's requested it. We've had almost a week where she only gets it at night-night so maybe, just maybe, we can beat the habit by this summer.

The new attitude. Well, Peanut's attitude has simmered somewhat. She's been in a much better mood lately. Except when she's not. When she's isn't telling me "NOOOOO!" she's smiling sweetly, saying "no, thank you" and giving big hugs. The good dulls the bad, I suppose.
