A Visitor From the Future Brings an Important Message (Sponsored)

Brought to you by got milk?

If you could visit yourself as a kid, what message would you bring? In this video from got milk?, a woman from the future advises herself as a little girl to start drinking milk for some absurdly entertaining results.

Although a simple sip of milk won’t earn your kids a gold medal, it provides a strong start to fuel both your family and the next generation of champions to the finish line. Every glass of milk contains protein, calcium and other essential nutrients to build strong bones and healthy bodies that would make your children’s future selves very happy.

For more information on how your family can drink to a brighter future and avoid unwanted visitors from the future, visit www.gotmilk.com as well as the got milk? Facebook page.

I am thankful for…
my house
my derpy stuff

“This a great list, Bob. What’s that last one mean? ‘Derpy stuff’?’

“It means cruddy stuff.”

“What cruddy stuff are we talking about?”

“I don’t know. I heard someone say it at school.”

Edible Math Fun for Preschoolers

Baby Bear loves patterns and numbers, so we took some of her M&M snack and played some games during our tea party.

You don’t need anything special for counting with little ones. Even your food can do! Start with easy things like numbers and counting.
Then move on to color sorting, sequencing from most to least, patterns, and sizes.
Work up to creating patterns, shapes, and anything else you can imagine.
Making a game out of things that will seem harder later on for children helps to build a foundation of good math memories.

A Gift a Day: Grocery Bag Holder and Fleece No Sew Hat

The grocery bag holder evolved out of my need to hold grocery bags in a convenient way that didn’t take up a lot of wall space. I found a tutorial for making one out of a kitchen towel, using a few pieces of elastic to scrunch the top and bottom and attaching a ribbon for hanging. It turned out so well I am making a lot more for gifts! A kitchen towel is only $1.

The fleece hat I made to match the scarf I made a while ago for my youngest. I may have made the hat a bit on the small side, so I hope it fits. It was very simple and quick- no sewing involved. I used fabric scraps for the scarf and hat so these projects were free.

We are taking advantage of the last precious warm days outside. Baby Bear is learning letters in preschool, so I try to find fun ways to reinforce it at home.

You don’t need anything special do this besides chalk. Read the rest of this entry »

The Short List

“Guess what, Mom? I’ve decided that now is a good time to make my Christmas list.”

“Oh, okay.”

“I’m not asking for a lot though.”

“All right.”

“Mom? How do you spell computer?”

“Mom? Are you voting for president today?”

“No. These are mid-term elections. We have two more years before we vote for a new president.”

“Have you ever met a president?”

“Kind of. About twenty years ago, I was waiting for an elevator in an office building in Beverly Hills. When the elevator doors opened, inside was former-president Ronald Reagan with two secret service men.”

“Did you freak out?”

“Well, he said, “Good morning,” and the secret service men nodded. I said, “Good morning,” back to him and we all rode the elevator down together. Then I went to my car and kind of freaked out a little.”

“I can’t wait to vote.”
