Little Steps

“How about some dinner, Bob? Are you feeling up to that?”

“Yeah, I’m starving.”

“I bet you are. You didn’t eat anything while you were sick. What sounds good?”

“Because I’m so hungry, I’m gonna have to go with a really, really, really big Popsicle.”

Where Would That Be On the Map?

“Mom? You know how some people are Jewish?”

“I do.”

“Well there’s a kid at my school who’s gibberish.”

“That’s not a thing you can be.”

“Well, the teacher said the kid was speaking gibberish.”


“So at least I know he has a gibberish accent.

Preschool Shapes and Math Exploration

Since I never liked math growing up, I really am trying hard to teach my children good math habits.  The reason most people don’t like math doesn’t have to to with the real way that mathematicians think about numbers.  I remember 4th grade math we had to memorize the times tables. We had to take a timed test and it started with the 1X and every time that you passed one of the tests, you got a cut out shape of ice cream scoop put on the cone with your name on it. The ice cream scoop had a number on it and Read the rest of this entry »

Valentine’s Day Bookmarks

While I’d like to take credit for these, I didn’t come up with the idea myself. I saw it on Pinterest, and all I can say is that I did go to the store myself and I punched the designs into the paint chip cards. Not much effort on my part, but I’m still impressed that I did it…

The Younger and I had a good time with these, after a lot of silent cursing and bruised thumbs because I bought the worst craft punches ever. She got to cut the ribbon and told me where to punch the hearts and stars, and then she did some “free” art with the cutouts. Read the rest of this entry »

Do Ugly Babies Exist?

Now some of y’all are going to have some issues with this post, but I’m not here to people please, (well, not entirely.) I’m here to tell it like it is and to tell the truth- and hopefully give you a chuckle. As a mother of an almost toddler with a new one on the way I am smack dab in the middle of the baby storm. Part of this “Babynado”, if you will, includes the much heated debate on whether or not babies can or can’t be ugly?

I hope this blog entry clears it up. The answer y’all is YES! A resounding YES. I know, I know I’m supposed to say all babies are gifts from God and they are beautiful. I DO believe that ALL babies are gifts from God, but they are not all asthetically pleasing to the eye. Am I lying?! Read the rest of this entry »

Baby Food!

I made my own baby food with Sprocket and wanted to do the same with Spark. I realized I never really documented any of it and wanted to put together a post that showed some of the process.

The underlying theme is the same regardless of the food…cut, steam/boil, puree.

First Star

“Look, Mom! The first star of the night! I’m making a wish.”

“Before you make your wish you’re supposed to say, ‘Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.’”

“No. I don’t think I need to that.”

“All right. take your chances…”

“How did that go again?”
