I love having a large family!  Trust me; there is never a dull moment in my house.  My house is a mess, but my heart is full.  Here comes the but….But, sometimes, my energy tank has to run on flat empty.  With every item on the to-do-list and spending time with my children, my needs often get pushed past the back burner.  There are days when using the bathroom in peace is the only way that I can take a minute for myself, there are days when that does not even happen. 

While I feel like this is part of parenting, the truth is that I am better at taking care of my family, when I take the time to take care of me.  I recently came across an excellent resource for different ways to take care of yourself as your child travels through the stages from prenatal to early childhood.  Sometimes, all that it takes is a concrete reminder of how important you are!  Please take a moment to check out:  http://www.ecmhc.org/documents/TakingCare_ParentBk_final.pdf

About Brandie

 brandie headshot

Join my blog to find early childhood developmental tips, tidbits, strategies, and activities to support children and families.   As a mother of multiple sons (18, 14, 8, 6, and 3), I know that life can be hectic, so all strategies and activities can fit in the context of daily routines and places families typically go.

I am enthusiastic about supporting families who have concerns about their child’s development and helping connect them to desired resources.

Pouches' Community Corner

St Baldrick’s Foundation began in 2000 over a simple idea – shave a colleague’s beautiful hair while also raising money for kids with cancer. And now this Foundation has funded over $200 million worth of research to cure pediatric
cancer. In 2015, the FDA approved a treatment that offers a higher chance of a cure for high-risk neuroblastoma patients because of that research.
