Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

The Two Best IQ Boosters for Kids

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.



The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue

Gratitude is an Attitude of the Heart

The holiday season is here and most of us are planning and preparing to make our family gatherings a time of joy and celebration. From meals to gift giving, once November 1st arrives, the rush is on and anticipation builds.



For some, it can be a stressful time, for others it is their most favorite time of year. Most years, I find myself feeling a bit of both. When I feel the stress beginning to take hold, I am always brought back to my childhood and the lesson my parents instilled in… Continue

Could you save Emily's life?

At a popular Australian pool last week, Matthew Kennedy, an 8-year old boy with autism, a severe speech impediment and learning difficulties, recognized that Emily, a 3-year old girl, was in distress. He jumped in, grabbed her arms, lifted her head above the water and pulled her out of the pool. Emily was unconscious and foaming at the mouth. Matthew’s father and the lifeguard began CPR, Emily began to breathe again and she was taken to the emergency room, still alive.



There are two… Continue

Long Time, No Post...But the New Camera has Finally Arrived!

It's been almost a full two weeks since my old camera got sent out for repairs. I felt strange not having it around for those impromptu shots throughout the day. And I just about panicked not having it for all the great activities we've been doing. It's been quite a pendulum swing I guess- there are hardly any photos from the early years of our marriage- it was such a bother to pick up film, get it printed, and then deal with all the prints afterwards. I remember being apprehensive about the… Continue

Alphabet Activities: Letter O

Today's letter was O. Munch already knows how to make them with wood pieces, so she got started on that while I finished preparing our other activities. I taught her to write the letter and say its sound, as is our usual routine. Today's letter collage had us brainstorming words that begin with O and gluing spots of oatmeal-

Our craft was an adorable paper owl- you can get… Continue

Asperpers and ADHD - How do some of you cope?

I have a 6 year old son who has been diagnosed with ADHD as well as Aspergers Syndrome. His ADHD levels are amazing, it is like the energizer bunny on steroids. Combine that with the nuances that come from the Aspergers, well, I should have bought stock in Advil. I know that having a structured day is important, as well as patience and compromises, but I have to admit this is hard in our household. I also have a 3 year old, a 15 year old who has NLD (non-verbal learning disorder) and I have… Continue

What to do when your kids don't want to listen???

So, my oldest daughter is getting older and with that she wants to make more decisions on her own. I have to realize that she is getting older as much as I don't want to! In one way its great because we can do more and talk about more but then you realize how fast time goes and one day she will be all grown up and on her own. Time goes by to fast. It seems like it was yesterday when it was just her and I. Now, she has friends and those baby moments are just memories. I don't want to loose one… Continue

He is the Teacher, I am the Student

One of the things that always impresses me and leaves an indent (sometimes literally) about my son is the fact that he is the teacher and I am the student. We were looking through our photographs the other day, and my husband said that one of them was from the time when I was having trouble getting him to nurse. For a while I didn't remember it (and even argued about it), but there was a period when I was having trouble. But I did figure out what he was trying to tell me, with his nonverbal… Continue

Friendliness in an Unfriendly World

August 14th, 2008



On a typical afternoon I often find myself pushing my son in his stroller as we buy our groceries, go to the bank, pick up our dry-cleaning and shop at the local stores on our busy street. Sitting in his front row seat, meandering through the crowd, my three year old happily says “hello”, “hi” and occasionally “nice dog” to the many people passing by. Sadly, I have to report that few will reply, or say hello back or acknowledge his attempt at being… Continue
