We’re having lovely, cool weather here in Iowa this week. The girls and I took a long walk around the neighborhood this morning and then came home to plant seeds for our fall garden (we’re trying lettuce, peas, and garlic).
I am not a natural gardener, so I am relying on the information found on the back of the seed packets and this lovely post from Amy at Gardens That Matter.
After planting our seeds into soil and watering them, the girls helped me find places around the yard to place our pots. (We have little critters–rabbits and deer, mainly–that like to eat our seedlings if we plant directly in the ground.) We talked about the needs of the plants: how much sunlight and water they need to grow properly.
Just as every plant has unique needs, so do our children.
Our first daughter was born unexpectedly at just 26 weeks gestation. To be completely honest, I was under-educated about being a parent from the moment she entered the world. I was given a crash course in having a newborn in the NICU, changing a diaper on a one-pound baby, and later–navigating a speech delay and keeping the knees clean on an almost-two-year-old who was not yet walking.
Thankfully, I had resources–supportive NICU nurses, our kind pediatrician, three helpful therapists who came to our home weekly, and a parent mentor from our local school district. They were the best resource for us because they knew my daughter and could give me personalized tips and activities to help our girl blossom.
I started my business five years ago because I wanted parents to truly understand their children and make personalized decisions about their development and education.
- It’s why I offer personalized learning plans, webinars about age-appropriate activities, and a FREE resource library for parents.
- It’s why I created our private Facebook group (The Parent Resource Room) and bring in a variety of experts to share their knowledge with us.
- It’s why I am constantly on the lookout for great books and resources to share with all of you!
