As a mom (and teacher), I strive everyday to engage, nurture, and expand the mind of my little one.
Here you will find the books, music, and activities most useful to me in my endeavors.

Accidents Happen

If only we could protect our little darlings from all the ills of the world ... and themselves! But, in reality, Accidents Happen ... all the time! Mobility and curiosity and exploration and no sense of fear can lead to some interesting mishaps! But - just as often - an accident can be completely unprovoked and always unexpected. This series of posts will be a chance to remind parents of common toddler safety concerns and the best immediate response.

What to expect ...
  • Nursemaid's Elbow
  • Strange object in Nasal Passage
  • Knocked out Front Tooth
  • Allergic Reaction
  • Big Falls & Head Bumps
  • Choking

I've compiled some research and enlisted the help of some mommy friends to tell their personal stories. While we can't prevent all accidents, we can be prepared to react in the best interest of our toddlers.
