Homework Creativity

Homework for preschool is pretty basic, as it should be.  GGirl has a check mark list that we do each night with her that involves working on her ABC's, writing her name and reading stories.  She knows her ABC's and can identify and write upper and lower case so homework is usually an exercise in mastery.  Some nights, sitting and writing is a good option. Other nights she has a bit more energy that we need to work with.  With puzzle pieces spread along stairs so that Mman can't get at them,  she has great fun matching her upper and lowercase letters while running up and down the stairs.

Fashion Leverage

I have a very strong willed daughter.  I learned soon after she began expressing fashion choices that letting her pick her own clothes on days when it really  didn't matter gave me leverage in the days it did. Today, I'm building up leverage.

Binkie Addicts

Both of my children required multiple binkies to sooth themselves.  Usually one in the mouth and one in the hand. MMan is taking it to a new level.  Truth be told, I think its more to work in his molars than to suck.
