Joining Matriarc gives each mom a few moments to focus on themselves so they can be best mom they can be for their children and family.
Healthy family living includes emotional care for yourself and your relationships. I think this is crazy and unnecessary, but more and more couples are doing it. Kay and Chuck went to Paris before Lyla came. If you want some ideas on a taking a trip before baby comes check out Babymoon Holidays. My suggestion is keep your needs and wants in check. Don’t be extravagant. Besides, trips should happen before AND after kids. Duncan and I have traveled a TON with our kids, in fact most of them have been to 49 of the 50 states (we still need to visit North Dakota), including many state and national parks. You have GOT to try out the Jr. Ranger Program! It makes traveling with kids an extra adventure.
Infant Language Development
Baby Sign Language is a wonderful way to speed up speech development, reduce frustration in young children by giving them a means to express themselves before they know how to talk, increase parent-child bonding, and let babies communicate vital information, such as if they are hurt or hungry. My friend Sarah is a pro at this. She has taught her 3 young children sign and Spanish while keeping their primary language English. Her videos of many children songs and words are HERE.
