Winter is upon us folks! It took some time for it to get here but it HAS arrived. Granted, winters in Ontario are milder than they tend to be out West but still…we get our fair share of minus degree weather. If any of you are like me, you hibernate during the winter months. I love being outdoors but not so much in the winter months. For those of you who are outdoors all year round…kudos to you! There are a lot of activities to enjoy outdoors but I’m going to stick to being warm and toasty for the next few weeks.
Miss O on the other hand, loves being outside. It doesn’t matter what kind of weather we’re experiencing, she loves being out there. Depending on how you like to enjoy your winter months, here are a few suggestions of ways to keep your little ones occupied.
Just how do you tell when your child is ready to use the potty? Every child is different but there are a few key indicators to watch for:
1. Has your little one started to show interest in his/her potty?
2. Does your little one tell you when he/she pees or poos in his/her diaper?
3. Does he/she follow you to the bathroom and ask questions?
4. Does he/she look for privacy to poo?
Are you juggling a hectic schedule that includes your child’s activities, your career, groceries, house keeping, general commitments and a host of other activities? With all that you’re doing it can be hard to find time for the gym, right? It comes down to prioritizing your time but how exactly do you carve out time for general physical activities?
Here’s a list that has worked for me and what I’m currently using to stick to my resolution of being more physically active.
I don’t typically set resolutions but I do revisit my master goal list at the start of each year and I re-commit to the plan I’ve developed. My goals typically fall into 4 categories: career development, personal growth, financial security and health. These might not be so different from yours. But with our goals in mind, what exactly do we need to do to reach them? How do we ensure success ALL year round?
