What guidelines at home will help your child be ready to learn at school? Ask yourself: Do I know the daily routines kids need, including how much sleep and exercise she needs? What are the best ways for her to spend her time after her day in kindergarten?

Friends, and strangers, often ask if we enjoy having a new dog in our home. Well….
Adopting our rescue puppy was the single greatest addition to our family since the birth of my child. Our child has a new “brother”, and we have a new (fur) baby.
I had become a horrible parent. Up to this point, parenting had been the easiest job I’d ever had. My wife and I were champs. We were (are) attachment parents; co-slept and never felt tired; managed to navigate New York, Paris, Amsterdam and every place in between without a stroller until, at two years old, our son was simply too big to put into his carrier.
Maybe the lesson isn’t to live each day as if it were YOUR last, but rather to live it as if it is everyone else’s last. What impression do you want to leave on that temporary life?
Look around at all you share this planet with and hold them dear. Is there some gesture unacknowledged, some words left unsaid?
The other night, I was at a dinner party, and a new acquaintance told me that he wanted to cultivate a life of childlike wonder and adventure.
I was intrigued. What an interesting aim.
I was particularly struck by his use of the adjective “childlike.” He used this phrase, “childlike wonder,” a few times, so clearly it was very meaningful to him.
