What's That Saying, Beware the Ides of March?

March 9, 2022. Can you believe it is MARCH 2022? We are "ending a pandemic," jumping gas prices are all over the news, Ukraine and Russia are pending a war?? Pretty soon it will be March 15, "beware the Ides of March." Apparently William Shakespeare made this saying famous in his play Julius Caeser. But did you know it was actually correlating to the date March 15 for collecting debts? Ironically, that is what all of us are grappling with now for the next month, TAXES!

I feel like I was just sitting down to write my post about a fellow mom and I looked it up, that was FEBRUARY 18, 3 weeks ago! What have I done in 3 weeks??

3 weeks. We have not tried the Otteroo that we are so excited about. We have been exploring new foods and new sounds. We have been planning a family vacation to Kansas before the summer comes, to explore the sensation of flying. 3 weeks seems like a long time but at the same time so short. From the perspective of an adult, 3 weeks can fly by--we go to work, come home, get everything ready for tomorrow, and then repeat. For the child, waiting 3 weeks for vacation is a loooonnnng time. For a baby developing, 3 weeks is the difference of sitting vs walking, babbling vs words.

In 3 weeks we have also witnessed some amazing patient success stories. And with that my friends, I will be back next time to talk more about that.
