"People often incorrectly assume that since the baby cannot speak, it could not be creating its own reality, but that is not the case. Even those who do have language are not creating through words, but through thoughts. Your babies are thinking when they are born, and before they are born they are vibrationally aware. Their vibrational frequencies are immediately aware. Their vibrational frequencies are immediately affected by the vibrations that surround them in their birth environment, but there is no need to worry about them, for they, like you, were born with an Emotional Guidance System. ~ Abraham-Hicks
Quote from the Health, and the Law of Attraction Cards: A 60-Card Deck, plus Dear Friends card. http://amzn.to/17i6nGs
I am the mother of a child with special needs. My young teenage daughter was born with pachygyria, which basically means her brain decided to be structurally different from the norm. In the old days she probably would have been labeled "retarded" (what a word, huh?!) and in a sense, that is what her brain did – it didn't advance fully.
My day-to-day equates to extensive learning delays and intense mood swings carried off by a normal looking kid. So, as I write to you... know that I GET IT. Having a child on a different path creates challenges and ups and downs like you would never believe. Right?! Not just for that child but also for you as a parent, or if you are a sibling, grandparent, educator, medical professional, etc.
One of the things we like to do before drifting off to sleep is settling into our beds and getting quiet within ourselves. We have a nightly ritual of clearing our minds, sending back any energy we collected during the day from everyone we came in contact with including removing any hooks or negative energy we may have also picked up unintentionally. We go through everything we are grateful for, clearing with techniques gained from Ho'oponopono and fill ourselves with gratitude. Then we visual how we would like tomorrow to go. Understanding we are co-creators with spirit we know how powerful this is. We then think in our minds a few affirmations and then drift to sleep.
The above affirmation is meant to be a guide on getting you started with your nightly positive thought process.
What do you do to relax your mind before bed? Do you have any rituals or techniques you'd like to share?
How your children enter their sleep world is just as important as how they begin their day. Here is an affirmation to say with them out loud before they go to bed. The above affirmation is intended to get you started. Add in what else your children would like to say. This is also a good time to reflect back on the day and state out loud all the things you are grateful for. Do you have a favorite affirmation? How do you help your children quiet their minds and fall asleep peacefully?

They say a pictures worth a thousand words, well I may just have to agree with that...Kids are just so darn curious about everything, the world, bugs, people, stores, animals, bed time books, etc.......why is this?..How is that?..Can I do it?....They don't know to be timid or afraid unless they learn it from us or see it some where, otherwise they appear to be fearless.
They are as a sponge and soak it all up..... The picture here just drips of curiosity. She is ready to learn up close and dissect it all.
It is up to us to feed their curiosity help them along their path what ever that is.....embrace it... Take time to listen to your children see what it is that interests them.
She on her own went and picked up the magnifying glass and asked to be put in her chair. She was on a mission...It did not matter that she could not read the places on the globe her actions were enough for her...
How does your child show curiosity?
How do you encourage your children to explore what interests them?

We've made homemade playdough for years. When the kids were little we kept playdough on hand for creative time. This recipe from Instructables is just like the recipe we like to use.

Rolling pins, measuring spoons, measuring cups and cookie cutters work great!
