A “Storied” Home

“By providing a more “storied” home, you will become a more creative, communicative family” Lisa Lipkin; Author of Bring the Story Home: The complete guide to storytelling for parents.

Just a book is nothing at all these days. With all the sales going on I could only be happy after I bought  Eleven books for M. These nice little picture books, each telling a simple story are just so cute to look at. Imagine snuggling with your child under the blankets and being all cozy with a cup of cocoa and just reading, while your child listens and looks at you and the book.

Yeah, but for me right now, It’s only Imagine !! My child is very high spirited toddler who just cannot stand still for a minute. While going through some of the parenting resources, I came across this article that I think will really come handy. I’m posting a link to it here if you are interested.

It’s Story Time By Alice Sterling Honig, PhD

Here’s another article I thought that was particularly good for us Mom’s who may fancy inventing stories and rely more and more often on their imagination and creativity than external devices to entertain.

Mommy, Tell me a Story! By Jill U Adams

One of the ideas that I really liked from one of the article I linked to above, is to get a few magazines, cut up a few pictures and build a story together. For instance a boy eating ice-cream or a girl chasing bubbles or froggies jumping in the lake…I’m sure you could whip up something yummy and this could be such a great game to play as well at a Birthday party or something, wouldn’t it?

Pictures of a few book I bought today.

Have a great day !!

A Mean Son?

Today evening, we just wanted to go hang out at our regular Barnes & Nobles; they have a standard kids area and all – So, ofcourse M loves it there.

As M & I were reading the story of two little duckies, a 4th grader girl came and sat very comfortably with M& I. I continued to read the story with the impression that maybe she was interested in listening to the story. But, not really.

Instead she started a story of her own, how she was there with her grandmom & has 2 sisters; the youngest being around 2. And then she asks me is your son mean to you? I was surprised by the question. I asked her, why do you ask?

She replied and said – well my two year old pulls my hair all the time and evertime I sit to watch TV, she comes and blocks my view and gives me a big grin.

So I tell her – well they are small, you know and they don’t understand completely that you are annoyed, but they do that mostly to get your attention. Your younger sister loves you a lot, that’s why she does that.

Then she told me – Well thanks for explaining it to me, everytime I complain to my mom, my mom just tells me, “You just have to wait; it will be fine.” And then her grandmom came and got her.

I was just sitting there trying to recapture the whole thing; it just occurred to me that kids need better answers than “It’s Fine”; “It will be OK” etc.. Other than the fact that I really enjoyed talking to the 4th Grader, I learnt that as my son grows, I need to make sure that I spend time in giving him satisfying and meaningful answers.

It is just so important in their Development !!

Let music inspire you!

Have you ever felt the power of Music? Have you ever let music inspire you? Has your workout ever reached a new level, only because you powered up some great music. The Music Therapy :) that’s what I’m talking about.

I was at a bookstore glancing through some women entrepreneurial books and I found a list of albums that are mainly categorized as “music to drive the girls”. I appreciated the list and I’m now exploring these; some of these are familiar; some completely new.

I’m going to have fun with this, I hope you do too!!

I came across this picture at Brainflower.com

This one really cracked me up and I thought I would post it. It’s interesting how only a few words sometimes are enough to make the point… He-he.
