Dear Mum and Dad, A Letter From Your 4 Month Old

Dear Mum and Dad,

With my 4 months of life experience I have come to 2 main conclusions:
1. You guys are expert parents. Seriously, you know just how to love me well!
And 2. Being a baby is a lot of work. It’s a full time job for me, but thankfully your support and encouragement makes it feel less like work and more like play!

You see, I have been a detective this month. There are these things called hands, and I can’t figure them out. They wiggle and squeeze and sometimes even scratch. But every once in a while I can wrangle them up and hold them captive in my mouth. I am not too worried about those hands though; they can’t be dangerous if you touch them and hold them. Mum has even named them “Piggie” and sings me a silly song about them. “This little piggie went to the market, this little piggie went home…”

Why

‘Daddy can you play with me?’

‘Not now caca. Daddy is working.’

‘Why?’ (Uh-oh)

‘Because Daddy has some emails to read so that I can reply to them.’

Why You Should Teach Your Child to Meditate

Meditation isn’t what many imagine. It doesn’t necessary involve sitting cross legged under a tree chanting. Meditation is simply giving the brain chance to rest. The world is a hectic place and there are plenty of reasons to be anxious. Giving children the skills to find peace in all the madness is an amazing gift.
With the information overload that modern children have to manage daily, the idea of meditation may seem too difficult but like anything new, it just takes a little practice.

Dear Mum and Dad, A Letter From Your 2 Month Old

Dear Mum and Dad,

You’re so good at this parenting thing! Your overflowing love has been evident through our snuggles, playtime, and conversations over these past 2 months.

Have you noticed some of my latest tricks? One is that I can smile at you! Good thing Dad is an expert at silly faces and Mom gives the best baby tickles. Another trick is that I can open up my hands! Instead of keeping them clenched, I have begun to to relax them more, which will help me grasp your fingers even better.
