It has been absolutely freezing.
Is it April yet?
We’re pretty much on a friends house – gym day care – bounce house – museum- grocery shop – rotation. Our favorite indoor playground closed so that indoor option is now… not an option. 😦 I’m so bummed! I’ve been feeling really bad about not getting my kids outside, but ohmygosh it’s cold! We’ve kind of gotten out of the habit of going outside, too. Hopefully it warms up a little in the next couple weeks so we can get some fresh air. As of now, I park far away from the entrance to places and count that as outside time. It’s seriously like 3 degrees right now so I get some points for that.
I found a new lunch favorite —
Chicken taco wrap!
In the mix :
Chicken, spinach, tomatoes, salsa & Fage greek yogurt (used as the sour cream.)
I’m really loving these “Flat Out” flat bread tortillas. 9 grams of protein and 100 calories. Not bad.
I had this little guy to keep me company.
He is so funny! He knows when the camera is on him!
So, Lucas wants to learn how to read.
How do you teach a child how to read? I guess you start with learning all the letters first, right? He was asking me how I read and I told him, you have to read all these letters and words. I sat down with him at the table to work on some letters and I was happy we got 10 minutes in. And only four minutes of craft time! Who doesn’t like craft time?! So I’m just not sure how to teach him letters that doesn’t involve sitting still — any ideas? Honestly most of the things he learns (besides learning through play) and most of the things that I am directly teaching him, are when we are talking about it. We do a lot of talking in the car – a. lot.- to the point where I literally have to say, “okay Lucas, lets turn on some music and have a little bit of quiet time, okay?” He asks a million questions in the car and we have some pretty good conversations and learning opportunities. I like that and it works well for him and his learning style. But letters…. isn’t Leap Frog Factory suppose to teach him that stuff?
Sort of not really joking. All my friends said that movie taught their kids the letters. I guess for now I will just keep reading books to him and trying to point out some letters as we go. I love reading books to him.
Today I’m thinking we might build a fort with blankets and move the couches around. Oh and I have to go to Target to get diapers. Perfect. Day trip to Target. Done.
