    COVID-19 and the Caregiver

    COVID-19 and the Caregiver

    Let me tell you a story about the time that I was a caregiver for both of my parents from a past flu season (Mom passed in 2017, and Papa followed her the following year). I will preface by saying that both of my parents had their flu shots a month and a half prior to this particular incident. I did not because those flu shots knock me out for a while, and as the sole breadwinner of the family, I couldn’t afford that at the time.

    teach your kids without them noticing

    teach your kids without them noticing

    This is subtitled indoor version because when I started thinking about this everyone could still go outside. Now we are more restricted I have made this the version for indoors and will do an outside version when we can roam freely again.

    Languages Are Not an Issue, But a Tool: Multilingual Children Know How to Use Them

    Mamma, mangiamo un gelato? My children are asking me; then, my husband answers Welk ijsje willen jullie? Our kids promptly answer back Wij willen een chocolade ijsje! My husband and I agree to go to eat an ice cream because, as we are on vacation, we are not so strict about junk food.

    Struggling with the future

    Recently our children had a moment of crisis, well not a real crisis, it was more of an anxiety attack. Over what you may ask? Well, it was about the future. All three of our children are now teenagers, two of them are in high school and one is in middle school [his last year].

    Safe Ways To Encourage Your Child's Swimming Hobby

    As children grow and begin to test the waters of ways to entertain themselves, it is natural for a few ideas to come into question that a parent may not love. Whether it be an artsier choice or more sports-related, like swimming, it is in your instincts as a caregiver to worry about possible injury or other risks. It is easy to be fearful of your child enjoying water activities, but considering how great of a hobby it can be, there are a few ways you can encourage your kid to do things safely.

    Wasted Years....

    Wasted Years....

    Retiring and relocating to North Las Vegas, Nevada in 2004 was something we looked forward to and planned accordingly. We moved into a new, but rapidly growing community. Our lives in Whittier, California were quite different; I worked full time in LaCanada, California and my husband owned his business in Santa Fe Springs, California. Our hours were quite different, we always ate dinner together, but our work hours varied. Our together time was a few hours in the evening and great weekends. When not working, we were always together...but also separate.
