During my senior year of high school I immersed myself in childhood education courses and took a child development class which I absolutely loved. In the class, each high school student was assigned a preschooler to work with throughout the semester.
According to a temperament theory based on a study conducted in the 1950s, my preschooler, Max (who I adored), fell into the “slow to warm up” category of temperaments. He was shy and tended to withdraw from social situations with other kids.
He became quite attached to me, but had a hard time coming out of his shell around others. One way I could get him to approach other children was to point out similarities he shared with them.
“Oh look! Jason is wearing a yellow shirt just like you!”
Max would get so excited and would muster up the courage to tell Jason about the awesome thing they had in common.
I think this experience really stuck with me because I still point out obvious similarities in my day-to-day life. If two people come to work and they’re both wearing a red shirt and jeans, I feel the need to point it out to them.
Today I was quite matchy-matchy myself… with my coffee tumbler. 😀
Though my drink and I were a match made in heaven this morning, my breakfast failed to include the color coral and didn’t really mesh with my ensemble.
Today my morning meal was a fast favorite.
I made myself a yogurt bowl with Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries and Gerber Graduates banana puffs because I’m a kid at heart. 😉
Fast. Simple. Satisfying.
That’s how I roll.
Do any of you out there know how to publish photos with captions through Windows Live Writer??? I can’t figure it out for the life of me! (Clearly this post was not published through WLW because my photos have captions. I need my captions!)
Question of the Morning

I changed my major a couple of times.
