If I had to sum up being a mom in only one word it would be amazement.
I’m sure you are thinking of all the words why pick amazement, but that is simple-children are amazing. As adults we look back at our childhoods and fondly remember birthdays, holidays and special people who played roles in our lives. As we get older and finish school and begin our adult lives we tend to lose sight of what we loved most as kids. Then the day comes when we have a child of our own, in my case a 4 year old daughter.

We’ve recently heard from our community with their tips for dealing with baby’s tantrums and wanted to chime in with one of our top tips. We find that music is one of the most tried and true ways to soothe your baby’s mood at almost any time. Classical music specifically has been found extremely effective to calm a fussy baby. You probably remember Mozart, Beethoven and Bach from music class years ago but bet you never thought these guys would become your right hand men in calming your baby when you need help most.
Keep in mind that for nine months your baby was kept warm and peaceful in your womb. Now all of a sudden she’s out in this new, unknown world. Music can be key for easing the transition into this new life. Many genres, especially classical have steady beats that mimic your heartbeat and trigger a calming effect. In the middle More >

Ah, finally summertime is here. It’s a great time to get back outside and the perfect opportunity to introduce your little one to some really neat new sights & sounds.
Go, go garden! Your garden is filled with colors and textures that will be brand new to your little sprout so bring him along for the adventure (and don’t be afraid to get a little dirty). Introduce him to new textures by sprinkling a handful of dirt on his hands or tickling his little arms & feet with a leaf. Let him smell the crisp scents of fresh herbs.
