Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Astrological Personality Profiles for Kids

I'm not an astrological fanatic but enjoy reading an occasional horoscope and other entertaining reports about how our signs reflect who we are. I happened across this site and thought it would be fun to get a free reading based on the kid's birth date.

First I did Boog. My loving, funny, intelligent, sensitive, snugly 5 year old

Young Leo

Leo children are rays of light - playful, willing to be the center of attention, always ready to put on a show. This child is highly entertaining and able to assess the presence of an audience with surprising sophistication. In infants you may notice his showmanship just by their alert and pleasant nature, like stars ready to go onstage. There is warmth and charm about little Leos. As the baby grows into a toddler, there will be a marked agility with the body, a natural athleticism, good balance, and physical features such as a wide brow or a big head of hair.

Leo children are natural stars and may need a little help when it comes to fitting in with their peer group. They are naturally popular, but may have issues when it's not their turn with a toy or game, or simply not their turn to shine. Rebuffs or accidental slights might be taken as deep insults. Imagine a cat getting water poured on its fur! At these junctures, help your little Leo understand that they are not the target of ridicule, even though they feel terribly humiliated because it means so much to them to be loved, adored, even worshipped! Remember, many actors, rock stars, and politicians are Leos, so you have a big personality on your hands!

Leo is a fire sign and thus warm, affectionate and sexually uninhibited. Encourage your child's free expression with the body, maybe introducing dance lessons when he or she is ready. Some kind of physical exercise that channels all that fiery exuberance is recommended, lest the energy be repressed or express itself in unproductive ways. Be the parent who gently reminds your son or daughter about boundaries and limits, their own and other people's, so that you are a trusted source of support, not a critical judge.

I agree with most of this. Boog definitely wants to be the center of attention, but only around people he feels comfortable with. It may be the fear of ridicule that prevents him from any team activities. We started him in soccer at 3. He loved practice and was eagerly ready for the first game. Right after the first kickoff he dribbled the ball down the field and scored a goal. It couldn't have been more than 20 seconds into the game. I was so proud and just knew we had picked the right sport for him. NOPE. Once everyone started cheering, he immediately came over to the sidelines and begged me not to make him go back. He did that the rest of the season. Would participate at practice and would refuse to play in the games, where people were watching. We would have stopped going all together but Hubster was the coach and I had signed on to be the team mom.

He definitely has the fiery exuberance and needs physical activity after school to burn it off.

Then there's my beautiful, confident, charming, loving, oh-so-stubborn 3 year old, Puddin Pop.

Young Taurus

Children born under the sign of the bull are calm and pleasant, consistent and practical. Being cuddly and affectionate, Taurus children enjoy physical contact. Endowed with a gentle nature, they can nevertheless be extremely stubborn.

Taurus is ruled by Venus - the planet of love and beauty - and Taurus can be seen as the most sensuous of the signs. The little ones are sensitive to colors and sounds and to a harmonious environment; they care about what they eat and wear and appreciate the finer things in life from early childhood on.

Taurus children won't be bullied into anything they don't want to do. If they feel forced they turn stubborn and won't give in to anything and anybody and will always hold their ground.

Most Taurus children are likely to have a naturally beautiful singing voice and a very melodic way of speaking. They should be encouraged to take part in any musical activity offered, be it singing in a choir or learning to play an instrument.

Collections and possessions are rather important to Taurus children and they love toys and things they can collect. They even like to take on little chores for money and save what they earn. They can become little money makers at a very early age.

Taurus children are extremely loving and sensitive. Physical signs of affection are especially important, and they enjoy receiving huge bear hugs from an early age. Taurus' are strong, and they will learn to make the best huggers in the world.

In general, your child is loving, generous, tender, sensitive, and for the most part, well behaved. Just make sure you don't push him too hard or force him into anything he doesn't want to do. He will process things on his own time.

This one is pretty much DEAD ON. She is everything mentioned and already collects every coin she finds around the house, outside, in the car. wherever and puts them in her bank. Stubborn? Yeah. She definitely tries to rule the house. We have to stop laughing at how stubborn she is because it won't be funny for much longer.
