Valentine’s Day

The Valentine’s Day card that made me tear up was this one, because I could read it without too much trouble at all.

Dear Stacy, Happy Valentine’s Day. I love you. I am making a valentine for the best mom ever. Happy Valetine’s. From Charlie

A New Kind of Golf

Charlie invented a new game. He calls it golf. The goal is to get the ball under the cart…and then pull it out again?

A Personality Test

The Keirsey Temperament Sorter

In a new parenting class I’m taking (Calm and Connected: Parenting Children with ADHD), the Keirsey Temperament Sorter was part of the recommended homework.

The goal was to take the test once for what your kid would answer and once for yourself. Seeing our differences–and our similarities–laid out in such a positive way was really cool. We are both Idealists, but he’s a Champion and I’m a  Counselor. It was reassuring to see our traits described as strengths when it’s so easy to forget to see us both in terms of our weaknesses.

Now I want everyone to take the Sorter so I know what type they are!

You can find out your temperament here.
