In all that I am asked about raising children, safety is often the most common topic. With the topic of safety comes often forgotten bathroom safety. We often think closing a door means our little ones won't venture into the bathroom, but they always, always, always get in!
I've had the great fortune to be part of creating a lot of different nurseries and it still remains one of my favorite things to do. The time and care that goes into creating this sanctuary for the arrival of your baby and for you is a truly special time and the process should be enjoyed almost as much as the end product.
I think it is a great thing that mothers want to be more educated about their health during pregnancy and about how to have healthy pregnancies. We are no longer throwing back espressos and puffing on the old cigarettes during those nine months, but are instead eating better, staying active and becoming more educated than ever before. However, pregnancy is also not the time to take the health focus to an extreme by going on a juice cleanse or training for a marathon. Balance and moderation are key, even during those endless summer BBQ's!

I just read "Raising Your Spirited Child: A Guide for Parents Whose Child is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent and Energetic" by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka and loved it. I hope this helps you feel relaxed with your spirited child - enjoy!
