New Books

The holidays combined



 I don't really know how much of this gets internalized but I keep reading out loud to Tiny

The activity books are interesting but too much  and he gets tired if them

It's a hit and miss sometimes.

It depends on the day, what we are learning at home from the child knowledge books etc

After outer space, he went into maps, but I haven't made a map for him yet out of cardboard. I know I should but I am holding off. There are so many things he is learning, including songs.

So we will see.

Stars in class

They made this classroom roof in such a way that the kids can see stars

Tiny is really into it, because we are learning about planets, astronauts and the like

They have the kids  look at them every class period, so he's always excited.

I noticed that Tiny notices things the way I notice them. When a whole group is  doing one thing, he  will focus on something that's not 'like the others'
 So cute
Ahh this life :)

 Don’t ever think love can be found in dysfunction just because it cuddles you at night.

Book Diversity

Where was all of this when I was growing up?


These stories and illustrations are FOR REAL

The library and bookstores are full to overflowing with them

Good books

Fun Books

I am soooo happy to see this

The stories are really good and the artwork can't compare

The characters are heroes, smart, super scientists, strong, yet vulnerable, kind, loving, soulful

Thank goodness for books that can teach your kids

Only for Tiny

My hair  has gone through a range of natural styles
Only for Tiny
He loves it
He plays in it
He holds it for comfort
It's his thing
So anytime he sees hair that looks like mine, he's into it

What can I do?

He's good for me :)


Easy to make

I dunno if this was a hit.
It was a request for weeks but the roll of masking tape got played with for a lot longer

Going Hard in the Crayons

Its a fav activity and I get into it too

Mainly because you can do as you please

Crayons are so easy too

Loved the artwork in these books


And so so cute

Therefore during art time and teaching the colors and how to mix, we went ALL in

REALLY HEAVY on the crayons


Now Tiny can recite the colors
I love this

Just for today

Just for today, I will try to live through this day only,
 and not tackle my whole life problem
 at once. I can do something for twelve hours
 that would appall me if I felt that I had to
 keep it up for a lifetime.

 Just for today, I will be happy. This assumes to
 be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that
 "most folks are as happy as they make up
 their minds to be."
 Just for today, I will try to strengthen my mind.
 I will study. I will learn something useful.
 I will not be a mental loafer. I will read
 something that requires effort, thought and
 Just for today, I will adjust myself to what is,
 and not try to adjust everything to my own
 desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes,
 and fit myself to it.
 Just for today, I will exercise my soul in three
 ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and
 not get found out. I will do at least two
 things I don't want to--just for exercise.
 I will not show anyone that my feelings are
 hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not
 show it
 Just for today, I will be agreeable. I will look
 as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low,
 act courteously, criticize not one bit, not
 find fault with anything and not try to improve
 or regulate anybody except myself.
 Just for today, I will have a program. I may not
 follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will
 save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.
 Just for today, I will have a quiet half hour all
 by myself, and relax. During this half hour,
 sometime, I will try to get a better perspective
 of my life.
 Just for today, I will be unafraid. Especially I
 will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,
 and to believe that as I give to the world, so
 the world will give to me.

Into these

When did kids books become EXTRA COOL

I dunno

But I am so glad they are!


Was Mother's Day
The best thing that ever happened to me was this

I was striving for a whole bunch of other stuff, that just turned out to be stuff.
Can you believe it?
