#10 week in pictures



{It looks like a horror movie scene.}

{Don't worry. It's not}.

{We just went to get our car washed with triple foam - colorful, scented 
with wax. Why? Because obviously normal white foam is too mainstream ;) }.

{"Imagine you're walking in the forest and you see a bear. Immediately, your hypothalamus sends a signal to your pituitary,
which sends a signal to your adrenal gland that says: "Release stress hormones! Adrenaline! Cortisol!" And so your heart
starts to pound, your pupils dilate, your airways open up, and you are ready to either fight that bear or run from the bear. //...
// But the problem is what happens when the bear comes home every night, and this system is activated over and over and
over again, and it goes from being adaptive, or life-saving, to maladaptive, or health-damaging.
Children are especially sensitive to this repeated stress activation, because their brains and bodies are just developing.
High doses of adversity not only affect brain structure and function, they affect the developing immune system, developing
hormonal systems, and even the way our DNA is read and transcribed."
