  • 5 random things:
1) I’m 14 weeks preggers and most frequently craving fresh fruit, cold cereal, pineapple juice with crushed ice, and as of last night, cherry jello 🙈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) I’ve been binge watching #NewAmsterdam and I’m stuck between my excitement to watch each next episode and my fear of catching up and running out of new episodes 😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) I caved and I’m bringing back that dang elf on the shelf that I banned from my house a few years ago, because my girls BEGGED to have one and I realized we prob only have a couple magical years left where they really believe. I ordered @elf.tivities because I’m terribly un-crafty and creative and so relieved to have each day planned out 😅🙏🏽 if you want one too you can use code mintarrow for $8 off! 🎅🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4) this anthro blanket wrap was originally $100 but I found it for you guys for like $40, linked on my blog along with a roundup of the rest of the cutest stuff from their extra 40% off sale on sale 🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5) I’m currently trying to decide between a 30 min workout and a 30 min nap. Which would you choose 💁🏽‍♀️😜

  • So do you do elf on the shelf?? I’d love to hear some ideas!!
.
I would like to introduce the newest member of our family. Elf on the shelf has been in my sights for a couple of years but I wanted to wait for my kids to be a little older....now they are 5 and 3 I know they are going to love this little guy! I’m going to introduce him on the 1st December the same day as their advent calendars begin and I’ll let them choose his name. He will appear through his door and slide 🥰 (see my stories for all the merchandise fun)
.
Not only will this little elf get up to mischief with the kids toys but he’s also going to choose an ingredient for me to cook with each day. And he may appear on the odd run with me if that actually happens in December 😉

  • I'm dead right now.
🦌
This is how I decorate a million and a half elf cookies. 
Worst part: marking up their eyes on day 2!
🎄
Best part: getting pictures from customers and their elf set up with my cookies in them!
💗
I will have extras at the Wesley UMC Christmas Market this weekend...and some more toward the end of December.

  • Punishments :
When a child behaves in a certain way that is not socially acceptable and/or harmful for him or the surroundings,  we tend to  punish them. 
Do you make them sit in the corner facing the wall (timeout)? Or, take away something which is precious to him/her like a toy, screen time or tell them no park, party or playdate for them? 
Do you think it helps or adds value in any way?  What it actually does is firstly heart breaking and secondly destroys their self esteem and confidence.
Such "quick fixes"  are just a mechanism for us to get out  of a sticky situation rather than showing  patience.
 How can the consequences of a child hitting another be - sitting facing the wall ? How does it help him/her ? Or no playdate next week ! Child can't foresee something so far away.  There is no connection  to the deed done.

In Montessori approach there are no punishments but there are consequences. If a child bullies another child on the yard, he is told to sit on the side and watch everyone play for sometime. He knows he is missing out the fun and with his own eyes he sees everyone having fun being kind and making more friends.
During circle time, it's not just mindless repetition of nursery rhymes, but rather a discussion of a good topic. Maybe that day the directress of the class will talk about being kind in the yard (without naming the child), talk about feelings when someone is hurtful and ask everyone one time when they were kind. 
No child should be pulled out of the crowd , given names like naughty , hyper and stubborn. Only through healthy discussions ( not nagging ) and correct consequences you will see unbelievable change in the child's behaviour. .
