Some days are normal and boring and some days just aren’t.
Just a few things that made life interesting today.
Mabry wouldn’t take a nap and was crying for a bit. When we finally got her up we found that she had lumps in her pjs and when we went to investigate, we realized she had shoved her pacis down her pjs. Not helpful Mabry, not helpful at all!
We got back on track with stories from the bible as we are studying Jesus’ life through a Lent study and because we were a little behind we read more stories than normal. I loved the new chalkboard art cross we made and then 2 boys and a tornado happened around it apparently.
Then this. What? Why? If ever I were to question the stability of my child I would do so now with the reuse of a baby diaper box. But sadly he’s done this before when he was much younger and really thinks it hilarious.
Then as we were working on another school subject or trying to I should say with a whiny crying baby because she decided to not nap (not irritated at all in case you were wondering), we realized we hadn’t seen her in a while. When she showed herself, the corners of her mouth were covered in toothpaste. She apparently had been sucking on the tube. Why?
And if you think her lips aren’t pouty enough, you should see them when she gives herself a fat lip, which happened today. Gress is proudly wearing his camo shirt with blood on it after he tried to comfort her from falling off of a stool she put next to the boys bed so she could climb on up.
Then Gress and I played a sentence structure game and let’s be honest….I kept having to look up the meaning of linking verbs, prepositions and adjectives. I pretended I was trying to teach him but really I was teaching myself. HA!
Then for some crazy reason I decided to turn on toddler music (think happy dancing kids songs). I knew Gress had rhythm but I had NO IDEA he had harmonica skills. Forget the drums, this kid is crazy talented with that mouth instrument. Lately the whistling has been constant and I have to bite my tongue to not squash that great skill. But I think I just found a new outlet for him…that he can do…outside!
And then there’s Mcree who came late to the dancing, instrument playing party. He pretty much ran in circles until he couldn’t run anymore. And Mabry danced her little heart out.
I find that the days that I ease up and close my school schedule are the days that more hands on learning and fun take place.
