My Preschooler This Month
Hello from BabyCenter! While your child is developing better motor skills these days — stacking blocks, turning pages, even standing on one foot — she may not have as good a grip on her emotions. At this age, she's still prone to a fair amount of pushing, yelling, and throwing tantrums at the drop of a hat. When she's upset, remind her that talking gets better results than acting out. And remember to praise her when she makes an effort to communicate with words.

I've done it again!
It's summertime. But, as usual, my minivan-momobile is burning up the streets of LaGrange getting the kiddos to their summertime destination: CAMP! Ohhh... I bet my mom is so mad. Her one word of wisdom to me is always: SIMPLIFY. But, I've rebelled in typical childlike fashion and overbooked, overscheduled our summer thus far. Taken on too many projects, started too many different new things and have every single one of the weeks of summer booked with a camp, lesson or vacation. I start working on summer right after Christmas. It's like the kids will die of boredom if they're not going! going! going! Or, more likely I think they'll miss out on something so fun, or so beneficial to their future that I won't be able to forgive myself. I can just hear a college basketball scout saying "Carli just isn't quite good enough to give her a scholarship... you should've sent her to summer basketball camp!" Or, "Tate could've made the Olympic swimming team if you'd only pushed him a little harder and enrolled in swim lessons at age 5." So off the couch they go... and on to camp full of concentrated fun & education. And they do have fun. I'm the one stuck in the van hearing "Home" by Chris Daughtry for the millionth time on the radio!
