Being a stay at home mom in Seattle has its ups and downs. There are days when I wonder if I made the right choice when I decided to stay at home with my children. When I have a bad day, I think about the reasons why I became a stay at home mom.
Fortunately yes. I dropped it off at a concert hall gift store in New York and it just spread out from there. It’s at the gift shops of Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center in Washington, the Boston Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony and so on all across the country.
The changes I observed after she started school really pleased me. For a while she was a loner, but her teacher assured me that all kids go through an adjustment period in a new surrounding like that. For most, it takes about six weeks for form friendships and to feel part of the group. After about three weeks, my daughter had a few friends that she played with, and soon she adapted to the way things were done around there.
Pro: I can discipline my children. A mother I know told me she regrets not spending enough time with her children because the people who take care of her children do not discipline her children as she hopes. While this scenario is not always the case, being with my children gives me the opportunity to teach my children values that will (I hope) help them succeed.

Even though I now live in Atlanta, GA, I was born in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands. You know, that spot on your world map that looks like a speck of dirt. Well, even though we don’t make a huge impact structurally, we do make many intrinsic impacts that only a few get the honors of being graced with. Because of my regular column in the Virgin Islands Daily News, I remain pretty close to what’s happening there and my family and friends ensure they assist me with staying in the loop. For example, my younger cousin named Larimar. You see, he was apparently struck by lightning. Not once, but twice. It happened one time he was sitting in his classroom at the Virgin Islands Best Montessori School and another time when he was minding his business at home with his family. It’s true.
Our primary task was to figure out what would work for the 4 year aged boy. He needed a program that would support him understand his numbers and letters. We just weren’t planning on him to learn to read, though quite a few preschools taut their capacity to explain to that to youngsters. As well, we all know our preschooler perfectly. His interests focused on playtime outdoors and additional energy classes. Obtaining all that would certainly work. If it also presented another language learning, it might be a definite plus.
And remember to praise the effort rather than the result. Now you know my favorite ways to encourage young kids to help with clean-up! I hope it helps!
