self portrait. you don't get to see my face on my feed very often. only because i enjoy being behind the camera rather than in front of it. . . i can see my concentration line running down between my eyebrows. i like that line, it's my focus line. i think i'll keep it.
Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don't give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people. Thank you Lord for giving me strength and guidance everyday. Happy nurses day to all hero nurses 🥰 #sunshineaward2019#nursesday#capturedmoments#instagramerz @delarosaaeroll
Where do you stand on screen time with your kids? I was listening to the radio today about how official guidelines say children under 2yrs shouldn't have ANY screen time (including TV) and children 3+ should have approx 1-2 hours a day tops. • Slowed speech, diminished social interaction/abilities and a developed attachment to tech were just some of the issues they touched on, issues which the next generation are facing like no other generation before them which is as crazy as it is scary. • But when I thought of how TV has improved LO’s vocabulary and memory, even helping him learn to count, I felt a little more reassured. Of course I worry about screen time, but I’ve given up feeling guilty about because... well, just look at him! He loves been outdoors as much as he loves watching Sarah & Duck. He knows what word appears next in a Meg & Mog book like how he remembers what’s about to happen in an episode of Hey Duggee. • As with everything in life, moderation is key- and so is trusting those parental instincts when it comes to doing what we think is right for our kids. We have days with no TV. We have days with more TV than I’d like. And then we have days like today- playing with mud, throwing cherry blossom like confetti and getting wet as we watered the veg patch (for what felt like the 10th time)! • P.S The irony of posting this on a day where Little Ored’s snotty cold had him running out into the garden with my iPad asking to watch CBeebies is not lost on me 😂🤦🏻♀️
