I have been dreaming of a vacation for a while now. My one concern coming from past experiences is that vacations can become downright exhausting. In fact there have been times that I’ve returned from a vacation and felt like I really need a vacation, literally to recover from my vacation.
I started him at this place with the hopes that he would become prepared for all that's to come in kindergarten. It's really amazing what these little guys need to know at this age. He needs to know how to recognize all of his ABCs and write most of them. He needs to be able to count to 20 and recognize all those numbers. He needs to know the sounds that match with the letters. In fact, there's a whole page of things he should know before starting kindergarten.
So many activities are available in our area that it became necessary to create a family schedule. If you find yourself forgetting your son’s soccer practice or that monthly planning meeting at work, you may want to create a family schedule as well.
First you have to decide whether one large schedule placed in a central location within the home is the best option, or a smaller version of the schedule printed out so that each family member has their own copy. Every family is different, so you need to choose the option that best suits your lifestyle. One large schedule placed on the wall in my kitchen works best for us.
Participating in a muscle relaxing meditation brings me piece before I fall asleep. After a long and tense week or day I sometimes choose to enter into mental meditation where I picture every muscle in my body releasing tension. I start at my feet and work my way up to the top of my head. The trick to this meditation is to call your focus back if your mind begins to wander while your working on relaxing a muscle. Another key to completing this type of meditation is to start before your too sleepy or you'll drift off before draining all the tension in your body.
When you have friends with no children, you should censor yourself. After all, it's different than when you're talking to a mom. Moms know other moms like to talk about their kids, and that's cool with them because they can reciprocate. But non-moms are different.
My sister recently had a birthday party for her son. Of course he got a few nice birthday presents, but he won’t remember that birthday because of the gifts he received. It was the time that everyone spent together that made that party great.
One of my sisters bought an antique fire truck with her fiancé that they have been using in parades to win money for various charities. They brought the fire truck over to the party and gave everyone a ride in it (adults and children). He had called ahead to the police station to let them know what his plans were so that he could gain permission to blow the sirens and honk the horns for the kids amusement.
