A couple weeks ago was E week on our letter of the week journey. It was a light week, project wise, BUT it was exciting because Daddy was on vacation AND Nainy and Grampy came to visit! Aadie had a great time telling them the letter we were learning about and all of the other … Continue reading Eggstra Exciting “E” Week
Potty training, or more specifically, toots. What would be a better topic for a mama to get back into writing about? We are most of the way there when it comes to potty training. She's got the concept and most of the time she does a great job. Lately we've been having some "false alarms" … Continue reading Oh, potty training…
Whining is certainly something that is not tolerated in our house. I have worked really hard on teaching Aadelyn to use her words when something isn't going her way. I realize that she is only 2 years old, however, she understands what we say and I believe that teaching her early on will be far … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Using your words.
This week we learned about all things D. It was kind of a dreary week, cool and rainy more days than not. Nevertheless we were able to have a great week and Aadie definitely learned that D says /d/ for "Daddy and duck!" so I think overall it was a win. hah! Dinosaurs were big … Continue reading A Dreary but Delightful D Week
We are just getting ready to say 'c' you later! to C week. We had another great LoW week! Aadie also decided that she would potty train herself this week (yay right?) so we ended up spending a lot of time inside and didn't venture too far from home. She's doing awesome though! I'm so … Continue reading ‘C’ You Later!
This week we continued our LoW journey and learned all about the letter B. Some of our plans were kind of ruined due to unexpected bad weather (unexpected in that Mama forgot to check the forecast.. oops). Either way, we didn't let the rain spoil our fun! Bubbles, books, balancing, blue coloring, bathtub painting, basketball … Continue reading BOOM, It’s B Week!
Last week we started our letter of the week fun! We learned all about the letter A. Of course, Aadelyns name starts with 2 A's so she can definitely recognize it in print and is pretty protective of it- "that's my A, Mama!". Nevertheless we had some great fun discovering all kinds of things … Continue reading What ‘A’ Week!
My daughter is in this new phase that she really likes to dole out compliments. It's really cute and usually surrounds what I'm wearing or is repeated from what she hears.... Mama, that's a beautiful dress. Or dinner will be delicious! Super adorable, right? It always brings a smile to my face and kind of … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Unconventional Compliments
Well everyone... today was the day. My last day of work for the foreseeable future!! It was weird... exciting and sad at the same time. Before I left my friend Emily asked me, "Does it feel weird that in 15 minutes you'll be a SAHM?". I thought about that on my drive home... I spent … Continue reading Officially a S-A-H-M!
Have you ever had a conversation with your kids and realized afterward that neither one of you had any idea what you just talked about for the past 5 minutes? The other day at lunch Aadie asked for "red beggies".... cautiously I probed for more information... tomatoes? peppers? does she really mean that she wants an apple? No, … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… “Red Beggies”
