Last week we learned all about the letter F. My parents were still here for some of it and Aadie was very excited that they got to watch her/ take part in some of the activities! We took full advantage of having family together and had some family portraits done of my parents, brother, myself, … Continue reading Flips, Finger Paint & Fishies… it’s F week.
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…
Being a mom, I do a LOT that I never imagined I would do.... and usually it seems like it goes unnoticed and is not appreciated. My husband does thank me and tries to be helpful when he can, which is awesome, however I feel like no one in my immediate life quite knows exactly … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Feeling Appreciated
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.
We have been having a lot of discussions about fairness lately. Not necessarily because Aadie says that things aren't fair, but because I believe in natural consequences and following through when I give her a warning. I try to be very consistent in my follow through with her because I truly believe that it helps … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… what is fair?
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
I have found that one of the most challenging parts of staying home with the kids is that they are on completely different schedules. Of course this will get easier as they grow, but some days (like today) it sucks the life out of me. Hubs got home this afternoon, took one look at me … Continue reading Mama Needs a ‘Time Out’.
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!
I recently visited our local Trader Joe's to scout out some vegan ingredients and stock up on healthier snack options for my family. It's about a 25 minute ride, so not terrible for toddler and baby, but I don't go very often because I have tons of other options that are much closer. I go … Continue reading Here’s to YOU! Super nice lady who works at Trader Joe’s.
