Can You Plan with Littles Underfoot?

Herding cats.  Catching water with your hand.   Sometimes life with littles seems like a fair ride where you don’t know whether the next second will be joyous, exhilarating or terrifying.  And then there are those who think you can and should actually manage that ride!

Mystie Winkler and Celeste Cruz will be having a live chat on Tuesday, July 19 to help you  as you seek to plan life with the myriad of “interruptions” life with young children brings.  It’s free. Just register here. 

Organization for the executively challenged

While trying to find some tips on staying organized (I have fun getting organized, it’s staying there that challenges me), I ran across this great article for people with dyslexia on time and organizational skills.  I like how she matter-of-factly says essentially “Hey, we struggle  with this- how do we fix it”.

Her tips are helpful for many diagnosis–and for those of us who aren’t !

Discovering and Responding to Challenges

Most of us have some pretty amazing dreams and plans when it comes to our children.  And sometimes, well most of the time, things don’t turn out quite as we plan.  When  we begin to suspect our child may have a challenge of some type, or the truth is suddenly thrust into our face,it can be like be  like unexpectedly finding ourselves in a foreign land. Come listen in for the next 40 minutes as we explore this new land and begin to learn our way around this new world.

 

PLEASE make sure the volume on the youtube site as well as the volume on your device is up.  There have been a few who have not been able to hear it well but I have found adjusting the volume on the youtube channel to solve this. If it does not, please let me know!~
