During her first trimester of pregnancy she went in for a routine check-up and she was told that there was an abnormality and that further tests were needed “just to be sure”. She was a little worried but not too much, the excitement of a new baby was still too much fun. We still had all of the shopping, the baby shower and the joy of pregnancy to look forward too. She had a test where the amniotic fluid was withdrawn and it would give the doctors the ability to confirm or deny their suspicions. She woke up early that day and had her mother go with her to the appointment.
But it soon became obvious that every child craved the extra treat. What, then, determined self-control? Mischel’s conclusion, based on hundreds of hours of observation, was that the crucial skill was the “strategic allocation of attention.” Instead of getting obsessed with the marshmallow—the “hot stimulus”—the patient children distracted themselves by covering their eyes, pretending to play hide-and-seek underneath the desk, or singing songs from “Sesame Street.” Their desire wasn’t defeated—it was merely forgotten. “If you’re thinking about the marshmallow and how delicious it is, then you’re going to eat it,” Mischel says. “The key is to avoid thinking about it in the first

At the beginning of one of my morning calls to Martha*, I accessed the property by using the key safe for the front door. This is better security than leaving the key somewhere else where other people can gain entry. Martha had tablets from the dossett box morning and evening calls only. On the morning call the daughter has already administered the medication due to there being painkillers, these help and have a chance to work before we go in as moving Martha is very painful for her. The daughter will record that she has given this on our MARS sheet (Medication Administration Record sheet), which can be found in the care plan folder.
W’s or what Meg is going through in her life. Also, the movie adds scenes to the begging like Charles coming from under a blanket and telling the family about teratoma, the human teeth and hairball after Meg calls the twins "human hairballs” and Charles claiming he hears people talking to him in his head after dinner. I feel that the only reason Disney did this was to extend the movie time. Instead of adding useless scenes to the begging, they should have just stuck to the book, regardless if the movie isn’t long enough or not it will still be “good” because that’s the way the book depicts it. In the book when we meet Meg she is described as a homely, awkward, with braces and glasses in the movie she is given a more attractive appeal taking away her glasses and her braces.
There were a couple of very slight metaphors such as when the narrator made mention of “wiping the egg from my eyes.” This is a figure of speech to say that when we wake up in the morning we sometimes have sleepers in our eyes and wiping the egg from our eyes means getting rid of the sleepers. One other metaphor that was used in the story was when the narrator said, “Man, Terri’s mama made their whole life like an afternoon commercial.” Terri’s mom always had pudding pops and juice in the house for after school and other snacks that the narrator was not accustomed to unless watching it on TV. This was a figure of speech to describe what the narrator thought you would only see on TV and not in real

Our kind multiplies: We shall by morning Inherit the earth. Our foot's in the door. - Sylvia Plath Like many poems it can be interpreted in countless different ways; with ‘Mushrooms, ’ Plath has merged several ideas (the Cold War, the atom bomb, depression to name but a few) into a single theme. The main themes being that of the upcoming rise of Woman’s rights with ‘We are shelves, we are Tables,’ highlighting the view held by men in society at that time of women as purely domestic objects and it is also laced with echoes of the birth of her first child. ‘Overnight, very Whitely, discretely’ resembles the sensation (or rather lack thereof) of the moment of conception.
