About Me

I'm a teacher turned stay at home mama. I love finding things to make and do!

I do not know why it has taken me this long to try kabobs with A.  We recently had fruit kabobs for a family celebration, and she actually ate fruit she normally will not try.  So tonight, I decided to put french toast (which she never eats) with grapes (which she loves).  It's a hit.  She's even asking for MORE.  Amazing.  I can't wait to try it with sandwich items.  Bread, cucumber, turkey?

When you can't go outside.

We've had hardly any snow all winter, so when we got a big snowstorm a few weeks ago while A was sick, I couldn't bear to keep it from her!  I didn't want to take her outside while she was sick, so I brought a bunch of snow inside and let her play with it in the sink.  
These are the items I added:
-measuring cup
-plastic cup
-plastic ice cubes
-foam numbers from a puzzle
-mini wooden spoon

She had so much fun.  Her favorite part was eating it (which makes my stomach turn) but I let her do it for a little bit and then we melted the snow with the faucet. 

  She thought that part was fun too.

Make a Face

A loves stickers.  I found this Make a Face sticker pad on Amazon for 4.99.  It was a huge hit!  I've been limiting her to 3 per day, otherwise she would have used up the entire pad at once!  (Too bad they don't make a "boys" version.)

We are still here.

Oh how these past few months have flown by...sort of.  They have been busy, full of holidays and birthdays and then just the everyday little things.  I take photos of what we do, I just don't take the time to upload any.  Hopefully I'll get better about that.
This morning we are at the dining room table...coloring.  A has never really been interested in coloring, and out of the blue--yesterday, she wanted to color.  She colored Care Bears and Dora and Curious George...anything we could find online and print for her.  This morning she discovered her brand new box of crayons Mama bought for her...64 of them!  I am sitting beside her as she shows me each crayon and asks me the name of the color: Purple Mountain's Majesty, Macaroni and Cheese, Mauevelous!  I love a brand new box of crayons.  Speaking of crayons, do you remember this clip from Sesame Street?  One of my favorites.
