Back to School

Uh-oh. School is starting back up. Of course, I'm glad that it is but it also means time to start packing snacks and lunches again...and we all know how much I really dislike doing this because I can't seem to get organized enough to streamline.

Let's see if I can manage it better this year.

Firstly, school is starting and the seasons are changing so I probably want to start upping our Vitamin C intake every day. By a lot. Just so we are equipped with our "health armor" when we start school and we avoid any sick days. This means more dark green, leafy veggies, berries and peppers (still abundant at the farmer's markets), broccoli, citrus, peas

A sponge

You know how sometimes, there's these children that have this magical child-like innocence to them. An adult could talk around them all day long and they just wouldn't absorb any of it.

The spoken word escapes me

Sometimes, I do so much better with writing things out rather than having a conversation. I feel like in conversation, there's the possibility of being interrupted and throwing my thoughts off course. Especially during heated times. However, I think the hubs differs in opinion.

Teeth brushing

Just a short note on teeth brushing since I've come across this twice and, in my opinion, twice is too much. Twice, and from two different families, I have seen that these little girls do not rinse their mouth after brushing.

Eww, gross is what I say to that. Well, not to their faces, but I promptly say, "You need to rinse your mouth after you brush. So you can get all the yucky stuff out of your mouth."

Self help post

I don't normally post about self-help...but last week during my Waldorf Teacher Training, we were given an exercise that really opened my eyes to a new perspective that I just had to share.

DIY Shampoo

My SIL emailed me a few weeks back raving about their cousin's hair. It was so lush and shiny! She makes her own shampoo. Of course, I was right on that!!

Separation Anxiety

My child is seven years old. And, she's pretty outgoing so it seems. I know she has a very shy nature too. Might I venture to say a bit of a fearful nature. She's always been a bit hesitant to separate from my side but I thought that by now, at age 7 and a full year of first grade under her belt, she'd be different.
