This blog was started May 16, 2016.  Activity ideas to encourage movement are presented along with resources for family health and wellness.  There are many ways to help your children grow to love an active lifestyle.  Learning to balance work with play is often an on going journey.  It's not always easy to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and allow ourselves to have fun once in a while.  I am constantly trying to figure out how to create those opportunities while still managing appointments, homework schedules, school activities, and meal planning.  A favorite post:

About Me

My photo

I have over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Development Birth-Age 5 including work in classrooms and as an Infant/Toddler Program Manager.  I have several writing projects in progress including a resource book for parents of infants and infant room teachers in a full day child development (school) program.  The book will provide families with information about what to expect and how to monitor their child's progress in an Infant room.  My second book project involves how to cope with family challenges, lessons in forgiveness, dealing with a spouse's addiction, and reinventing yourself along the way.  I am excited about all of these projects and am currently accepting comments regarding experiences my readers have had placing their child into a full day child care program.  I would also like to hear from Infant room teachers.
