    How We Got Our Toddler to Keep Her Glasses On

    How We Got Our Toddler to Keep Her Glasses On

    Complete and utter denial--that’s what I was in when the pediatrician told me in January 2019 that my then 15-month-old girl twin, Joules, was farsighted in her right eye and needed to be seen by an ophthalmologist. The pediatrician had just done a standardized vision screening (normally performed at that age) that revealed the initial results. I remember telling myself that the doctor’s assessment was probably just off and that the eye doctor would tell us that everything was okay. I mean, Joules had always acted like she could see perfectly. So, there had to be a mistake, right?

    You are exactly who you are

    You are exactly who you are

    Growing up I was super insecure about myself because I always felt so different. I felt different by the way I thought about things. I was never and still aren't able to connect with people my age. To this day I'm not really sure why, but I think it goes back to not getting reassurance from my parents. I never really had their full and undivided attention.

    Babee

    Babee

    Up until this point, it's been much preparation for the arrival of our baby. We painted the room and decorated it in a Dr. Seuss theme throughout. There's Horton here, Who there, and The Cat in the Hat brightly shines down from above. One fish here, Green Eggs, an Eye, The Grinch, an Ear, a Wocket, and a book I had never even heard of called, "The King's Stilts". We found it on Ebay; it's from 1939. It isn't written in Dr. Seuss or even Geisel style, but it is fascinating. All in all, we have a hundred or better books in this room already. We have many hundreds of trinkets and toys-some cool retro stuff, as well-for Elsee to train her mind with when she get here.

    Proper Fractions

    Proper Fractions

    A proper fraction is a number whose value is less than one and the numerator is less than the denominator. So what does mathematics have to do with this challenge? Well, for my open letter to a best friend I have chosen to write to my four children. When I think of whom my best friend is I have to include them all. Each child representing one quarter of a whole has unique attributes that when combined together, create one amazing unit.

    Why Do Babies Need Teether?

    Why Do Babies Need Teether?

    Teething is one of the uncomfortable phases for babies. In this stage, babies might get cranky and frustrated easily, which creates anxiety for the parents. As teething is the major milestone development, the first few teeth will be painful for babies. The teething phase for a baby will differ from one another. From the first few months of through the first year, babies can experience teething. It is believed that babies are teething when they start to drool. But, sometimes teething babies do not drool at all. Every baby is unique, so is their development phase.

    105

    Writing has always been intimate for me, maybe it's the way I write, or the way my stories seem to sound made up; someone asked recently, why am I writing this on plain ol internet when I can write it in a book; they were referring to entry 104. I replied " He is not my story: I am " and all the doubt that had started in the back of my mind, was put to bed. I am a great writer, always been; I've written since I could spell, in both languages; Spanish and English. I wrote stories, related to experiences I had growing up, but I've never had the balls to write MY story and doing so now, is the most amazing feeling I've felt in a thousand years.

    Rory came to Stay

    Rory came to Stay

    The ray gun is meant for shooting but my nephew likes to just bonk me on the head with his. This makes a very prickly aunt sharper and more dangerous than the cactus glaring at me from the window. I am not a morning person the cogs in my brain don’t start whirling until approximately eleven, which is tea and toast time. There is no point resisting I offered to babysit, nobody made me. I do love the little bugger as much as anybody but just not at the ungodly hour of half seven.

    Sound of a Shell

    Sound of a Shell

    Sam picked up the shell, while she listened to the sound of the ocean in front of her. She gazed at the shell with amazement for three beautiful minutes. Sam remembered what her parents said, "You can listen to the sounds of the ocean if you hold it up to your ear." She then pushed the shell up against her ear. The sound of crashing waves echoed in her ear. She noticed that the closer she walked to the water in front of her, the louder the shell echoed the sound.
