Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

Now I know what that book was about

This is how I know my Mother reads my blog:

Last month I wrote about our inability to remember the content that we binge - especially books. Last week she sent me a link about how to fix that.…

4 Ways to Help Kids Focus During Piano Practice

The trope of middle class parents forcing their kids to appreciate music by taking piano lessons is a cliché that is easily over a century old. While we parents have often sat through piano recitals that were probably as cringeworthy for us as for our kids, a good part of the…

Sometimes You Need to be a Hedgehog

 

 

There are many things on my ever-growing To Do List that I hope to chisel away at today, including month-end bookkeeping (yuck) and working my business plan 2017 (yay!). There are so many things that I have had lightbulb moments on in the last 4+ months when it comes to my writing, my path and my…

Who is really paying attention?

My son is sitting at the dinner table with a somewhat vacant stare and not answering my questions about his school day. I am not sure what he is thinking about.…

When it is too loud to think

My son recently went to a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. When I was a child, Chuck E. Cheese was a wonderland of fun games and chaos. Now that I am an adult, I think of it as a casino for children.…

Focusing your attention on the important things

My son is six now, but I vividly remember the oh-so-brief period when he was a baby. He would sit on the floor with toys scattered all around him and either his Daddy or I would be on the floor nearby, watching him play and sometimes joining in to help him with his blocks or trucks. I never wondered if we were playing with our son in the "right" way or even if there was a "right" way to play with him.…

"K" is for Five (5) Ways to Kick the Crap to the Curb!

This is a fun one for me. I’m a clutter bug at heart and it drives me crazy. If my head and home are cluttered, I can't think straight and my focus is way off, but I’ve improved my odds against it over the course of the past year by becoming more organized and also by redirecting my focus towards things that I love to do.

I admire friends that get rid of things easily. I tend to focus more on the sentiment of an item and look for reasons to keep it. It’s a constant battle that I’m…

It's taken me three tries to write this post on distractions

At work, it is the constant ping from the office communication program, the new email message appearing in the right-hand corner of the screen and the random pop-ins into my cube as I try to write an email or work on a project.



At home, it is the faraway comments from family members in another room, the…

This Love Affair Will Cost You

There is a really good reason why feedback is so critical in the product development process.

MONEY.

Hmm, interesting. Tell me more.

If you go down a path without prospective customer feedback, you run the risk that you will never be able to gain traction in the marketplace. You WILL feel strongly about your product. This is pretty much a guarantee. It's hard not to take criticism personally when you've poured your heart and soul into your idea but develop a thick skin…

Coasting in the classroom

There are several people in my office who stand while they work. I admire them. Because although I know I need to stand up more in my day, I'm not yet at the point where I am ready to raise my desk. (I'd have to stop wearing heels to the office, for one thing.)…

Who needs BuzzFeed when you have BuzzBrain?

I am awake and getting ready for my day.

Only, I am not just getting ready for my day. I am thinking about a project at work, and if my son has any homework he needs to bring in, and if we are out of milk, and what today's blog post will be about, and the fact I can't seem to catch up on my podcast, and did I…

They Gassed Me

Last week I learned a valuable lesson about communication.  It was during an emergency oral surgery that experienced this epiphany.  There is nothing like being laid far back in a dental chair filled with laughing gas and feeling not quite yourself. 

I had things I had wished I could share with my kids, learned about about how important it is to understanding communication and not just language itself.  And I learned some things about my own self talk.
