accent pillow case baby burlap housewares How Birth Order Affects Your Child’s Personality personalized pillow case baby

I’ve always been fascinated by theories of birth order and how they can affect a child’s personality, so it was with great interest that I read this article over the weekend which cites a recent study out of Adelphia University that found that first-borns tend to be more intelligent, while younger siblings are more outgoing.

And that’s similar to the fairly accepted notion that first-borns tend to be over achievers (past studies that looked at U.S. presidents, Nobel Laureates or NASA astronauts found that they were overwhelmingly first-borns) and that the youngest are more carefree. ?Other studies have found that middle children are independent and inventive (though there is that middle child syndrome but that’s a completely different post).

As the oldest of four childrenaccent pillow case baby burlap housewares, I’d like to think that I’m the smartest, though I’m pretty sure that’s not true.? But I do find some of the arguments the study made quite interesting.

First, that first borns tend to score higher on intelligence measures because at some point, they were the only recipient of their parents’; attention.? I know for a fact that we read to our oldest child more than our youngest (probably because by the time our 2nd came around we were too tired).

But while our youngest may be intellectually crippled as a result, apparently he’;ll be more open to new experiences because he’s witnessed challenges his older sibling has had to overcome, thus giving him more security in overcoming obstacles (so it’s not all gloom and doom).

Though none of this explains why this over-achiever is now working for her “carefree” baby brother so obviously there are other factors at play.? But it does shed some light on some things we may do as parents to unwittingly effect the outcome one way or the other.

So maybe instead of giving our oldest child more responsibility by default, we should try to beyond our comfort zone and dole out a little more to his baby brother?(with a 4 year age difference that’;s easier said than done).??And maybe I can try a little harder not to coddle my youngest (that’s even harder to do because, well, he is my baby).

Or maybe I can stop reading articles about birth order and do a much-needed load of laundry.? Hmmm…

I can barely believe it is year three of Prudent Baby’s Backyard Farm experiment. It has become such a part of our lives to tend to our garden that I can hardly remember a time when we didn’t have one. We look forward to spring like people must when they live somewhere with snow (growing up LA, I never had that “when will this winter end?” feeling I’ve heard about- but now I count the days till I get to till and plant). When we started three years ago, I had never grown anything in my life (actually I was famous for killing green things at an impressively rapid pace). Look how far we’ve grown since year one and year two! (omg, i couldn’t help myself with that pun). So…

Need a last-minute centerpiece idea for your holiday table? Short on time? No problem…..and no need to compromise on the outcome. This darling little tree can be put together in no time. Use coordinated fat quarters or dive into your resource center (aka…fabric stash) and use scraps of your favorite prints. This sweet tree also makes a great foyer accent piece, especially when teamed with your favorite ornaments.

A lampshade can make or break the look of your lamp. Even if the lamp is right, without the right shade, the look is wrong. The line between sophisticated and silly is a fine one. Shape, style, and proportion can make the difference between a lamp with elegance and flair and one that is overly ostentatious and lacking in balance. Choosing a lampshade is as personal as choosing the right hat- what looks good on you may not look good on me- and it certainly won’t fit! But no matter what your style, it helps to outline the basic guidelines.
