How To Learn Like A Child

Babies, toddlers, and children are fascinating in their ability to learn. They learn quickly, efficiently, and seemingly easily, and accomplish huge amounts in their first years. They are not plagued with the self-doubt that creeps in as we get older. Instead, they develop and build their skills, while entering into a world of play, creativity and imagination.

Winter Music With Your Toddler: February

By the time February gets here, I’m really ready for Spring! It’s cold (we’ve even had more snow…), dark, and wintry. However, young children don’t know any different.

Musical Love Letters – Straight From Your Heart

As J approaches his 18-month milestone, my thoughts are turning once again to his next musical love letter. Throughout his first year, I wrote in a ‘New Baby’ journal every month. I used this to track his development and little things that made me smile. Photographs were taken, videos were recorded, and memories were stored. When I had completed this ‘first year’ book, I was conscious that I needed to continue keeping a record of all the little things that would be forgotten. That is where the idea of ‘Musical Love Letters’ was born. Continue reading “Musical Love Letters – Straight From Your Heart”
