How do you handle trick or treating candy hauls? Here's what we do: we let our daughter inventory everything she has, but then only eat one thing a day. The "categorizing" seems to satisfy her need to feel like it's all "her's" but without gorging on the sugar. What do you do?
Looks like our daughter wants to go as a Harry Potter character since she's just getting into those books.
Just passing along something that works for us. When we're in a store and our daughter wants to buy something, if it's not an item that we want to purchase for her, we agree to take a picture of it. This seems to satisfy her because she feels listened to and knows we've saved it for her.
Wanted to share something my daughter and i do: when i travel for work, she lends me one of her smaller stuffed animals. I take it along and over the course of my travels, send her back pictures of her stuffed animal having a good time w me. It gives her a sense of what i'm doing while being away from her and gives us another "connection" beyond the phone calls/facetime.
I was amazed to discover the US is sliding backwards on maternal health stats. How can we not be supporting our moms?!? https://hunterwalk.com/2017/08/02/we-are-one-of-just-13-industrialized-countries-with-a-rising-maternal-mortality-rate-christy-turlington-burns-on-fighting-for-healthy-mothers/
