Yesterday my mom and I went shopping at the Pump Station. I've talked about this store before but I just love it. Of course my mom got Olive a few fun things and I even got a sexy nursing bra. They have a really good selection of Haba toys which I'm finding I really like. I'm hoping to minimize the amount of plastic Olive plays with or at least make sure they are BPA free. It helps that there are so many options out there. Most of the stuff is a bit too old for her but I can't wait to get her this.
Olive is loving Sophie the giraffe so we got her a friend. I think its a mushroom. She chewed on it this morning and poor Sierra was about to have a heart attack from the squeaking. She thinks that anything that squeaks is hers so she was pissed.
I forget where I found this but I subscribed to the newsletters and I've really been loving the little daily readings. This was from the other day.....
There is only YES

According to the Law of Attraction, whatever you give your attention to, you attract more of.
That means there's effectively no such thing as NO... There is only YES!
If you tell your child, "No, you may NOT have any candy! It's BAD for you! You shouldn't eat that junk," then you're essentially saying YES to candy by focusing so much attention on it. The more you resist it, the more you're thinking about it, which guarantees more and stronger thoughts about candy (or whatever you're resisting).
The key to happiness in a YES-based universe is to give very little attention to what you don't want, and lots of positive attention to what you do want.
If you truly believe your child is better off without something, then look for something else to say YES to — preferably something even more attractive.
Remember that Life Energy and Unconditional Love are more attractive than any thing.
