Life Lessons

This page is dedicated to the life lessons we are teaching our children, beginning at the age of one. Some are serious, some are fun, all are worth learning.

  • Week of August 11- Eating your crib is ill-advised and Your bottle is not a rocket-ship.

  • Week of August 25- Boundaries are essential to emotional and mental health. No one can make you feel bad, you choose to feel bad.
