When Manners Don't Matter

When Manners Don't Matter - sexual abuse awareness, bullying, staying safe, teaching manners - My Mama Adventure

Manners are a big deal to me and my family. When M was first learning to ask for things, we did not focus on please and thank you since it was all sign language, at first. As he grew and was able to use his words, I eventually taught him the sign for please and then later thank you. Now, he says it all with verbal words (though, when he really wants something, we get the verbal and the sign for please with a big sweet smile).

The Parenting Paradox

The Parenting Paradox - My Mama Adventure

As I was sharing about my emotional turmoil of M growing up so fast and starting preschool in a couple weeks, it occurred to me that there is a constant paradox to parenthood.

"Slow down! Stop growing so fast!"
"I want to watch you grow."

What's with the Ads and Affiliate Links?

What's with the Ads and Affiliate Links? - My Mama Adventure

Maybe you have noticed that I have an ad at the top of my page, there are some in between posts or after posts. Or maybe you've been wondering about that Disclosure statement that I make at the top of some posts, the links in the side bar that are labeled Sponsors and Affiliates. Many of you already know what all this means, but some readers may not, so I'd like to explain!
