March is National “Brain Awareness” week and since my interest is early learning, I have been looking forward to blogging about this. My natural interest in science and desire to learn more about brain development in my son is what got me into early learning.

Many moons ago, my oldest son Karson started his preschool experience and I was right there with him, serving the supportive role as the extremely passionate mother. Knowing I was going to be very involved we were both very excited about this new chapter in early education.

March is right around the corner and with that is National Nutrition Month.Having good eating habits takes knowledge, discipline, and being intentional. I cannot say that I have the most consistent and healthiest eating habits. I grew up having access to and eating healthy foods; however, there were many times where I went down to Dari-Mart with a quarter in my pocket to purchase a Little Debbie snack.

March has been designated as National Sleep Awareness month, but I thought I would talk about it this month as good sleep is something I have been prioritizing lately.When I was expecting my first son, Karson, my sister, my mom and a friend hosted a baby shower for me. My sister, Martha, had a notebook for guests to write down their best advice. It was a sweet and thoughtful idea and I looked forward to reading everyone’s advice.

I think writing, whether it is journaling or blogging, is so good for you. It challenges you to write down your thoughts, reflect on them, and see how everything pieces together. For me, blogging brought me back to my past and helped me self-reflect. The most fun part about blogging is being able to be a bilingual blogger -- writing a blog in Spanish is so enjoyable and rewarding.

Every time there is an ill member of the family, the question “Why?” runs through my head. One day, when my littlest was playing with other children, we left the facility in a rush because he was in much need for a nap. Next thing you know, we are all sick.

I grew up with high expectations, and over time I put high expectations on myself. As I layer the lens of reality over these expectations, I realize that they are unrealistic. Now, I plan to be intentional about having more peaceful times versus stressful added activities.
