    Ep 19 Sleep Talk, I'm Addicted

    13/04/2016 Duración: 32min

    On this episode, I talk about the wonderful power of sleep. I’ve had a taste and I’m addicted. Chasing that sleep high when I can. And, to round off the segment, one of the killjoys to my sleep, the family bed!  Well, it sort of can put a damper on my sleep when you have a toddler who takes over your bed. Join me in this episode as I sleep-talk. I might just sound a little “extra” on it, but really, it does a body good! On a separate note, please bear with me as I work through sound technicalities. I’m working on it. Thanks! We’d LOVE to hear from you!  Ask us questions and share what you do to keep your family organized! show@mixitupchicas.com ~ The Chicas Connect with us on our website: http://mixitupchicas.com   Tweet us at: @mixitupchicas   Like us on FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mixitupchicas-Podcast/1678379385727914   How much are you enjoying our intro/outro music?  We LOVE it and makes us want to dance!

    Yes Somanette’s backkkkk!  Or is it Somanette’s Back?!?!?!? Either way, the chicas, Colette and Somanette have back to school on their minds, specifically kindergarten.  And it’s not your mother’s kindergarten anymore.  Nowadays, five year olds are given language arts pre-assessments.  Can they identify uppercase and lowercase letters, give rhyming words, and explain concepts of print? What happened to learning to share, taking turns, napping, playing and being five year olds? What’s happening to education in America?  We may not have the answer to that question but we do have A plus news and tips to share regarding co-sleeping transitions.  Listen and find out!
