Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

Independently Attached

When Trinity was about two and a half years old, she wanted a lot of freedom. Still do, but not to that extent. My burden of keeping Miss T in sight wasn't easy, I learned how to apply tough love in Tackling My Daughter.

She is currently at the stage of asking for help, even if she isn't in need of help. She has the need to be close by, not like before when she couldn't wait to get rid of my hand.


The only way to keep Miss T at bay then was strapped up in a harness. We received it for Christmas and I had no idea what it was for, not until 11 months later when Miss T decided she needed to explore everything.
We were keeping scores to see how many times she would try to run-off. If she can walk and be independently attached, she was getting great reports.

At times, her urge to run was so strong that she took us with her. Needless to say, since she turned three the harness is broken and so has the habit. We all can relax now, because Miss T doesn't need it anymore.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  1. This post brings back memories of mine when they were that age. We had 3 kids under 3 and a half years so we made good use of harnesses etc to keep everyone safe and close by; especially when we were travelling abroad etc.

  5. I think those little harnesses and straps are a great idea. They allow a small child to explore but still give moms peace of mind in knowing where their child is at all times. That is a really cute photo of Trinity.

  9. @Anne Lyken-GarnerThree, under three? Wow, you are good. But at least now, it's all the same problems and phases. I think the harness is a great idea, kids wander off and they really don't know where or why they are heading most of the time.

  10. @The Clip CafeYes, time flies and it is a shame that when they are young we are to busy trying to provide

  11. @Judy Sheldon-WalkerYes, she is a lot better now, but the twos were harder. She was so exploratory.

  13. @SquirrelQueenShe was persistence and always pushing the boundaries just a bit more. The results, the straps broke.
