Finding a little more time

I often feel like there's not enough time in the day to get things done. Sometimes, it might be because I have a hard time focusing. Emails can derail me.

Paleo vs Vegan/Vegetarian

Wow, it's been a looong time since I've posted. I often have posts running through my head but then never actually execute because the day just gets away from me.

Lately I've been thinking about becoming a vegetarian. More because I feel guilty about all those animals suffering. And actually when I think about it, I often come across articles and testimonials that share the stories of people healing themselves from a host of ailments when they go vegan. It is very health serving.

Relationship advice from our Chinese school teacher??

Yes, why not? I was standing to the side when a parent asked our teacher, "Teacher, how do you discipline your children?" Of course, I'd be interested to hear.
This is what she said. She speaks to them as she would her friends. I think what she means by this is in a way that is not condescending or barking or ordering them around like they are children and we are the adults and we know best.

Amelia Bedelia

Remember those books? By Peggy Parish? Yes, great books. So funny. I loved to read them as a child. Now my own child seems to have a case of the Amelia Bedelia syndrome and it's not so funny. We would say something and she questions EVERYTHING. Example:

Me: You can fold your own clothes now. You are 8 yrs old

D (whining): Noooo, that's your job. You always do it for meeeeee

Me: No, I used to do everything for you when you were a baby but now you are 8 and you can do it yourself.

D: Oh, really? You used to do everything for me when I was a baby? Like you helped me to breathe???

Do you get it? This kind of exchange happens every. single. day. right now. A bit annoying.

Hope it goes away soon.

I love you because

When I read this post on MindBodyGreen, I thought, "YES!" This just makes sense. I want to forever always say, "I love you because..." rather than just I love you. It is so much more meaningful and I'm sure it makes the receiver feel so good about themselves. Why not share it with your friends as well and not just your close loved ones? Haven't you ever said, "I love you." to a friend because he or she is doing something silly? Imagine if you followed that up with "I love you because you always make life silly." Or whatever. It's just so gooood.

There's no such thing as rotten children

Just as there is no such thing as a bad dog...there are only bad dog owners, there is no such thing as rotten or misbehaving children, just rotten parents. Wouldn't you agree?

If you do ONE thing for your child...make it this

If you do one thing for your child (children), I think it should be to get them used to Apple Cider Vinegar. This one ingredient is good for so many things. I swear whenever I feel like a cold is coming on, I just take a shot of ACV with honey before bed and in the morning I always feel better and I usually kick the cold. When my child has a cold coming on it's usually harder to catch it before it hits because she's not really sharing the signs. But, I'm convinced that when I give her the elixir it makes the cold run through must faster.
This is my protocol for when she has a cold: Lemon/honey water plus extra Acerola Berry Powder all day long. At night right before bed, a shot of ACV mixed with honey and a little bit of warm water to melt the honey. I diffuse OnGuard in her bedroom at night. Wake up in the morning, repeat. If she has congestion or hard coughing I will diffuse Breathe in her room. But the ACV is key.
