Here is a simple way to freshen up any baby/children room. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a craft diva to do this. Dust off those tracing and cutting skills you learned in gradeschool because thats all you need for this project.
Making the decision to become parents seems like the easiest decision my husband and I made. All the decisions that came after our daughter was born have been more difficult – how to feed her, how to put her to sleep, what kind of car seat to buy, should we do this or that, buy this or that, yadayadayada. It was such an overwhelming year. Just when we thought we were over that phase, it was time to return to work. There I was again, slouched over my laptop, armed with tea in one hand, phone on the other, researching daycares, the pros and cons of Montessori vs. regular daycare vs. home daycare, choosing a location near work vs. near home, reading reviews etc.
I know how hard it is to feed kids. On top of it, getting them to eat vegetables is impossible. Here is a simple sauteed zucchini recipe that works wonders with my daughter. I am hoping the same for you all. Happy Cooking!
(This recipe works well for toddlers, and also as a finger food for younger babies accustomed to eating solid food. As always, if this is a new food you’re introducing to your child, use the 3 day rule to identify food allergies)
Happy Family Day! To signify the importance of this holiday, I decided to reflect on Honey, I wrecked the kids by Alyson Schafer: a popular parenting book, which can help us bring our family together in a positive, cooperative manner.
After, why even during, reading this book, I felt like I gained some growth as a parent armed with many techniques in facing meltdowns, defiance and downright hair-pulling behaviours from my children. Schafer expresses her views in a very clear and precise way with many relatable examples. She offers the reader a ‘toolbox’ of parenting and explains the need for each tool she lists. Her views are easy to adopt and implement in any home where the parents want cooperation instead of intimidation; appreciation instead of resentment and finally, children exercising responsibility over getting micro-managed.
