At Home activities for Preschool age children during COVID-19 shelter in place.

Ok, so this blog post is VERY different from my normal content. During this shelter in place, schools all across the country are closed and teachers are trying to teach from home, do remote learning, and children are stuck at home while parents try to help home school them. I have talked to several friends and I know a lot of families with kids at home have been hard. I know some schools are doing a lot online for their students, trying to keep their students active and learning online and teachers and parents are trying to do as much as they can to help their kids and students. it is hard for many of us right now… I get it! This topic hits home for me. I am a Montessori ore school teacher and teach children 2-5 years old. Online teaching is hard for teachers and students right now especially when so much of teaching is so personal connection.  The connection makes a big difference to be in person instead of distance learning or teaching.  Add in really young students and it has been hard.  A lot of our students do not have the attention span to sit

Shelter in place because of Covid-19? At Home Hair Care Q and A with My Stylist Diane.

I am so excited about this post and to share this information with all of you.  I had the opportunity to sit down with my amazing hairdresser, and friend, Diane, and ask her about some ways we can care for and take care of our hair, especially now that salons are closed, we are all quarantined at home and some of us (like me) might be struggling with taking care of their hair at home and what they can and should be doing.  A lot of these answers are super helpful for right now, but also apply for after quarantine is over and salons are open again.  Disclaimer- this is just my hairdresser’s personal opinion, as well as mine and I am sharing her opinions, products we both like, and what she suggests to keep our hair healthy. I have been going to Diane for over 15 years. She has been doing my hair since I decided to go completely platinum blonde and has been keeping it not only looking gorgeous but really healthy as well. Before we began this interview I asked Diane what the best way for me to support her was and what others

Update Regarding Swelling in My Arms, Surgery Options and My Plan Moving Forward

At the beginning of March, I met with a new surgeon to get his opinion as to what is going on with my arms and the banding and what he thinks we need to do in terms of surgery. If you have no idea what I am talking about I have a whole blog talking specifically about what is going on, click HERE to read more about what is going on with my arms and my first trip to see a specialist about surgery to help my arms. I have met with my regular surgeon Dr. Beck, who is amazing and he did give me in his opinion what was going on and all about the surgery he can do, but we both thought it would be a good idea to have me see another specialist and see if they have other ideas or suggestions to try. What are my arms like currently? I am still having a lot of swelling in my arms. Some days have been better than others and I do have an area on my right arm that is splitting open. I feel like ever since I have finally received some help with this wound and have been
