I am now an Ambassador for the new Fishful Thinking Campaign! Have you seen this site yet?
This site is full of valuable information on family activities, interactive tools and tips on helping kids stay positive through all of life's ups and downs. Who doesn't need that?
One of our biggest challenges with Rylee has been to help her stay positive, even when things aren't going exactly her way. I needed to find ways to help her deal with frustration positively and I am hopeful that some of the techniques that I am learning from Fishful Thinking will really help us out in this area. In fact, I wish I could have had access to this site sooner because it may have helped us to avoid a tantrum or 20!
It was just Rylee and I for the whole weekend (the first one with just the two of us since we brought her home). Since I couldn't work, blog or do much on the computer very effectively with 36+ extra pounds hanging off my arm we took some time to really check out the site. Rylee enjoyed the kids site.
She even broke out a few dance moves!
When she got sad today because she was missing her Daddy and her Sissy, we headed outside for a little painting distraction. First she wanted to paint flowers, then she painted a picture of her sissy, and on the last sheet I asked her what she wanted to paint and she said "fish!" and just how cute are they? (and did you notice that two handed painting?)
I think it's safe to say that so far, Fishful Thinking is a big hit at our house!
