6 Guidelines for Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids

There are so many things I am passionate about when it comes to the field of Early Childhood Mental Health. So, when Nicole Starr Photography asked me to pick a theme close to my heart to write about as a guest blogger for her website, it was really hard to choose just one thing. I decided to write an article that would give a little bit of information on several different topics that are the most frequently asked about when it comes to raising babies and young children. If you want to learn more about my 6 Guidelines for Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids, head over to Nicole’s blog and read all about it! I hope you enjoy it and come back to my website and leave your thoughts and comments below! Read...

15 Thoughts I Had During My 1st Trimester

A second pregnancy is definitely a whole different experience form the first one! Even though this pregnancy was very well thought out and planned, it happened way quicker than we expected, specially given the fact that the first time around we had the exact opposite experience. So here are some of the thoughts that ran through my 1st-trimester-pregnant-and-hormonal-brain this second time around:  Holy s***, I am pregnant!  Holy s***, I am really pregnant! – after testing for the 2nd time around  How is it even possible to love another human being this much?!  – while looking at my sleeping 2 year-old Oh, great!

How am I going to run errands with a running toddler and crying newborn? Ohhhhh, she’s going to be such a sweet big sister! – when visiting newborn cousin  What if I am pregnant with twins??!! Well, at least this time I won’t be pregnant during the summer! Although the snow doesn’t seem that much more appealing… Sorry, L! Mom is going to be a drag for the next 10 weeks! – while suffering from extreme fatigue and just wanting to lay on the couch all day long Oh, our sweet baby! – while holding back tears and feeling emotional at our first ultrasound I feel bad for you kid! – feeling bad for L every time I though that she would no longer get my full and exclusive attention anymore Now that this was getting so much easier… – thought that ran through my head after each successful outing, nap, bedtime, etc. ...

New Product: big sister/big brother announcement

Did you like the poster I made for our “Big Sister Announcement”? Well, a lot of people have asked me about it and showed interest in using the same template. So, I decided to add another category to The Loving Nest’s shop and make this template available to anyone who might be interested. Just add the product to your cart and tell me in the “notes” section all the details I need to know to send you your high-resolution .pdf document: up to 3 colors of your preference; who is being promoted? Is it a big brother or a big sister?; new baby’s due month and year. Then, you can print it and use it at your own discretion. In my personal case, I decided to print it at home and tape it to a framed chalkboard we already had in the house and have used for other milestones pictures. Go ahead and take a peak at the new Product section in our Shop. PURCHASE...
