What tricky things are you guys particularly good and bad at?

The Good
I've gotten quite good at giving Kira a bath. She hardly fusses at all anymore and then it's only at the end when she's damp and a little chilly.

The Bad
I am total rubbish at putting onesies on Kira. Every morning, I think "today I will clothe my child like a competent mother" and every morning I fail. I accidentally poke her in the eye, or I feel like I'm about to break her arm or choke her. She never cries but always looks up at me with these big blue eyes like, "what did I ever do to you?" I'm so glad she won't remember this when she's older!

The Good
I am great at getting him into a diaper without being peed on! I'm also pretty good at getting him dressed every morning.

The bad
Giving him a bath, I hate how small and slippery he is. That's why bathtime is DH's job with both kids!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

The good: bath times are pleasurable for us both now. I have a certain way I've learned to do it without any crying anymore. He really is enjoying them now.

The bad: carrying him. He is a very strong active wiggle worm. I've tried different ways of holding him. Nothing feels comfortable for us. I have to put him down to warm his bottle because he moves too much to hold in one arm.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

I'm terrible at cutting his nails. I made him bleed the first time I tried so for now I will stick to nail file.

I'm good at putting on diaper without getting peed on.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Good: changing him (he spits up a lot so I get a lot of practice)...wearing him (much better at wrapping and wearing him correctly than I used to be)

Bad: remembering all his stuff when we leave the house...I feel like I'm always forgetting something. Also, laying him down in his crib after he's asleep. I have DH do it now bc he was always waking up.

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

The good: I am good at multitasking while wearing him.

The bad: I HATE hearing him cry. I need to remember that babies cry and not let myself get so upset over it.
