Happy 2013!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends. I have so many great articles that I would like to share with you, so this next week I am planning on just posting what I have and hopefully it is of interest of you. I plan to get back on my normal blogging schedule now that things are getting back to normal here at home. Thank you all for reading and sharing with me your comments and stories. I look forward to this year and all that it may bring!

If you have questions or comments, please feel free to email me at InfantPsychology@gmail.com.

I hope to have more guest bloggers this year, so if you are interested, send me a copy of the article and if it fits with my blog theme, I will be more than happy to publish it.

Cheers!
