Santa Baby!

we finally have a year where Max isn't scared and bawling his eyes out when near Santa! woot woot! Not sure what exactly I did (if anything) that lead to Max 1) even going near Santa 2) smiling  and 3) Sitting on Santa's lap, but the little guy surprised me with his courage and non-bribed initiative to sit with Santa sans parents. (This was Max last year at CandyTown).

Initiatives that I think helped:
  • learned social skills at preschool
  • going to the mall several times, looking at Santa from far away, and kids getting their pics done (just far enough though to NOT see that the cries we were hearing were coming from kids who were sitting on Santa vs. the usual visible babies where cries are the norm)
  • setting a desired date in your head, and working up to that date with daily reminders, words, and tones of excitement
  • dressing up
  • getting a picture with parents first for comfort, and then just kids

So proud of you Max!

This year, Max introduced himself to St. Nick and told him that he wanted "Hot Wheels!" Mikkel on the other hand, had no tears, and was her regular content self who needed a diaper change right away (thank you for not staining Santa's suit girl!).

  2. If you just use coaching to fix the problem people, it gets a bad reputation very quickly. We also have a 360 [assessment] that they get at six months and the coach provides feedback around that. Because if you've never gotten a 360, the first time it kind of breaks your heart, because you thought you were perfect, and you're not.. (Michael Kors Pink Black Bag)

    The Bruins have always had that. Then part of that vision with those young guys was to be a faster checking team and a faster attacking team. We working on that every day, but I think we seen those two areas of our game emerge fairly successfully. (Michael Kors Black Leather Bucket Bag)

    The familiar response played out as the shooting again cracked open fissures in American politics and culture about guns, a debate that seems ever more entrenched. President Trump, in brief remarks at the White House, echoed Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) in emphasizing a response focused on mental health, eschewing the calls for stricter gun control that follow each attack. (Michael Kors Purse Black Small)

    I think it's fairly well established that 90 percent of my job consists of listening to local sports talk radio. Well, that job just got a little bit more complicated. Under the theory that if two is good, three must be better, Red Zebra Broadcasting announced on Tuesday evening that it's flipping WTNT 570 to an all sports format and re branding it as SportsTalk 570.
