Finding Your Inner Child

When do we grow up? When do we forget to play and have fun? Why does life have to be so serious? I've been asking myself these questions lately. As an early childhood educator, I am frequently reminded of the joy and freedom that can be found in play but what about all the other adults in the world? Would there be as much conflict, crime and war if we nurtured our inner child?

 

Here are some fun ideas to reconnect with your inner child....…

My Best Life: Silencing The Negative Voices

Last Week's Strategy

Last week's strategy was to be a more responsible consumer. The funny thing is, I really didn't get to put this strategy to work because I did not buy anything this week.... no food, no products, nothing. I will continue to have an awareness of this strategy over the coming weeks. Next Sunday the farmer's market near my home opens up for the season. This will help my strategy because I hope to get much of my fresh fruits and vegetables from…

When I Have Kids I'll Never Do THAT!

 

The other day while waiting in line at the store, a preschool-aged child in the other line started having a temper tantrum... he wanted a treat and his mother had said no. After a couple minutes she let him select a treat and the tantrum stopped.

 

In my mind I thought, "Eeeek - what kind of message is that sending him? Now he thinks every time he has a tantrum he'll get what he wants." The twenty-something couple in front of me vocalized my thoughts. Hearing it out…

The Doctor Put His Finger In Your What?!

 

Not to worry, dear friends, I haven't taken a turn away from G-rated material but... you would never guess where the doctor put his finger today. Ready? Are you sitting down? Do you have a bowl or bag to puke into? Can you handle this?



The doctor put his finger in my....



Oh. My. God. I can't say it. I'm going to be sick just recalling this traumatic event.

Pregnancy Through The Eyes Of A Three-Year-Old

 

One of the most joyous parts of this pregnancy has been observing my daughter's processing of the events surrounding my pregnancy. What is going on for Mommy? Why is Mommy's body changing? What does it all mean?



As I reflect on these moments, I thought some are just to humourous not to share. So here it is... pregnancy through the eyes of a three-year-old....…

My Best Life: Find The Humour

Last Week's Strategy

My strategy last week was to plan more quality family time. Every day I scheduled something special to do with my daughter (game night, baking, colouring together, play dough, etc.). I wrote our plans on the calendar and it served to remind me of the "scheduled" time we needed to spend together. I enjoyed having focused time with her and I found I was still able to accomplish all my other tasks during the hours while she sleeps. I will… Continue

My Best Life: Quality Family Time

 

Last Week's Strategy

Last week I reflected on all the wonderful people I know and I thanked them for who they are and what they mean to me. I often think of ways in which I can express my thankfulness but then don't act on my thoughts as much as I would like. It was nice to spend the week writing cards and making phone calls to all the wonderful people in my life... by knowing them, I am a better…

Home Organization (With Binders)!

 

I am often heckled for how organized I am. I regard being organized as a way to survive in this busy, crazy, world. As I reflected on some of my favourite organization tips, I quickly realized how much I rely on binders to keep me organized. 3-Ring, D-Ring, 2-3 inch, and multi-coloured... here are some of the ways in which I use these treasures to keep my household organized....…
