All parents/caregivers know what it’s like to be in the trenches. To be more sleep deprived than you could have EVER imagined. To be torn between wanting some alone time yet not wanting to leave your children’s side…constantly thinking about how much they sleep, nutrition, safety, whether they’re comfy, too stimulated, too bored. Too anything!
You are on it. ALL. THE. TIME.
And most parents/caregivers reach a point where they forget (or simply can’t find time) to care for themselves. Self-care? Where does that fit in? HOW!?

You can’t prioritize sleep when you have multiple children to care for and can’t nap when the baby naps ( ) It’s almost impossible to motivate yourself to exercise when you are exhausted. You’d rather watch Netflix ( 👋 ) than expend any more energy. Self-care is just not the priority.

And I know that you know how to take care of yourself, but it’s really frickin’ hard to actually do it!  I, too, struggle with making time for myself with the million and 3 things on my to do list. And what I’ve learned is that no one is going to force you to prioritize yourself. No one actually cares more than you do. Which means it must start with YOU. You set the tone.

Because today is and here are a few self-care/love affirmations to tell yourself daily to help get you started with a self-care/love mindset. As parents/caregivers raising future generations we owe it to ourselves. 💪🙌
You can save this post, screenshot, write them out and tape them to the mirror. Choose one (or all!) to focus on each day.

02/13/2021

According to Dr. Gary Chapman, author of “The 5 Love Languages of Children”, our primary love language develops as a function of the home we grew up in. If your parents were extremely affectionate, your primary love language is likely to be PHYSICAL TOUCH.

But if no one in your house was a hugger, you are less likely to interpret physical touch as love. Instead, your language might be GIFTS, ACTS OF SERVICE, QUALITY TIME, or WORDS OF AFFIRMATION. Of course, personality also comes into play, which is why we can have 3 children with different love languages! It’s important to recognize this difference between children. If I am not a very affectionate person and I treat my children in the ways only *I* feel loved, the child with the love language of physical touch will sense a lack of love.

Make sure you figure out your child’s love language. The best way to do this is to ask things like:
💚 When did you feel that I really loved you?
💚 When is a time that you felt loved?
💚 What makes you feel loved?
If your child is too young to answer these questions, WATCH how they show love.

“The 5 Love Languages of Children” by Dr. Gary Chapman is a great book if you want to further explore this topic.
Because tomorrow is here are a few “gift” ideas you can give to your little one with each love language.

Learning to speak your child’s love language is both the simplest, and most complicated thing in the world. I hope you find these ideas helpful for your parenting/childcare provider journey.

So it’s been a few days since Christmas, and many of us are probably struggling with the influx of new toys in our homes 😩

Toy rotation is a great way to keep the mess down, keep kids focused, and give them the opportunity to master new skills through play (and help us adults stay sane 😂)

Here are some tips

La rotación de juguetes es una excelente manera de mantener el desorden, mantener a los niños enfocados y darles la oportunidad de dominar nuevas habilidades a través del juego (y ayudarnos a nosotros mantenernos más tranquilos 😂)

Aquí tienes algunos consejos
