Who’s the Boss?
Teacher Tom shares a conversation that happened in his preschool regarding baby dolls, boys wearing dresses and talking about who is the boss. I loved it, because for years and years I have told the children I have worked with “You are the boss of you” which has often caused a perplexing look and a great conversation about responsibility for one’s actions. He talks more about this in his post “We Probably Learned it From You.” Good reads!

How to Photograph Christmas Morning
Ok, this is not related at ALL to speech/language but it IS related to family and making memories, which is so important. So often, in pictures of important events there is someone missing from the pictures….and often that person is mom. She is busy clicking away to preserve memories, but in the process she is left out. Your children deserve to see mom (or dad if he is the photographer) in those pictures! One of my favorite photography sites Clickin Moms shares a fantastic way to photograph your Christmas morning so that everyone is in the shots! I may try this out!
