Some weeks my Iphone catches a billion moments, some weeks it catches just a few. They’re grainy and gritty compared to my DSLR, but I love them just the same. Here’s a peek at my week Instagram style (I’m @acbd there).
I’m not ready to call myself a homeschool mom yet, but we’re maybe headed down that path a bit. Or at least I’m getting my act together and offering more learning focused activities. Here we are at the kitchen table working with counting bears (a recent tag sale score!).
And working again at the table later on in the week doing a little quickie art before dinner. I adore this window and the view of our neighborhood from our second floor apartment.
The water and gas department has been working on our road all week, which to an almost four year old boy is better than any cartoon ever made. It has been hot and humid all week and Malone came up with the idea to share his Popsicles with them. I love seen this side of his character develop. It makes it so much easier to get through the tough moments. Speaking of which, we had an epic show down at Barnes & Noble this week. I don’t have a picture to prove it. But it involved him kicking and screaming and me (in my 26.5 weeks of preggo glory) carrying him out of the store fireman carry style. Natural consequences are so hard.
Oh hey, Malone. Too tired for lunch. The child who hardly ever naps and who isn’t someone I’d classify as an epic sleeper passed out during lunch. I got to eat my yummy Red Robin burger and fries in peace and quiet. Total win.
The bow tie really completes this outfit, I think. We’re in the best part of preschool fashion opinions these days. It’s so wrong, it’s right.
Malone loves the muffin tin style lunch. Have you tried it before? If not, it’s super easy. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. And you’re done. He never finishes it in one sitting. What he doesn’t eat at lunch, he snacks on later. In this particular one, he had broccoli, cheese & crackers, celery, yogurt, unsalted mixed nuts, sweet potato chips, fruit salad, and chocolate bears. He asked for each thing specifically and told me it was the best lunch ever.
I’m linking up today with Jeanette from Life Rearranged. Want to play along?
wow what an outfit! haha! love the snack tray. i think my 4 year old son would love this 🙂 visiting from life rearranged. xoxo

The muffin tin lunch might be the best invention ever. I’m sure your four year old will love it as mine (almost 4)!
OMG! Why do I remember those counting bears from my elementary days? *memories* We have so much in common. Add homeschooling to the list!

You remember those bears because we all had them. Mine were a score for just a few bucks! I’m not sure if we are going to homeschool long term, but it works for now. I love that we have so much in common!
I love that muffin tin idea!!
Can’t wait to try it…

The muffin tin lunch is the best!
Sorry to inform you NJ but you have already stepped into the homeschooling realm without realizing it. Preschool homeschooling is exactly what the picture of Malone represents. If I had it to do all over again, I would in a heart beat. The only thing more satisfying as a mom was breastfeeding. But homeschooling was WAY more difficult. You can do it!
You are right, I suppose. I don’t know what we’ll end up doing long term officially, but I know that we’ll always be learning at home!
