September, our ninth month, marks the traditional start of the new school year. To achieve in school it takes confidence, and to have confidence, it takes knowledge. Here is a fun piece of knowledge that you can teach your child. It comes in three parts.
1. September (from the Latin septem, “seven”) was originally the seventh of ten months.
2. March (from the Latin Martius) was originally the first month of the year.
3. Around 153 BC January and February were added to the beginning of the year… And that is how September became the ninth month.
September! The Month of the Babies
As you start to bring up your baby, remember that you are your baby’s first and foremost expert. You can and will go to other professionals for advice, but you are the one who knows your baby the best. You see and experience your baby day in and day out. Use what you know, and then let their guidance enrich your point of view.
