I write about my life with my two preschoolers, who are very cute, but sometimes are crazy! Within this blog, you will find engaging preschool activity ideas and toddler activity ideas. When my son was born, my daughter was 2 years old at the time and she quickly began a downward spiral into bratty town. She started acting out and getting wild and I knew we had to do something, and fast. I began researching child development and I became inspired by the idea that kids won't act out as much if they spend even a short amount of quality time with Mom or Dad, doing activities that are truly interesting and challenging, such as pouring sand, water, or rice, or even making a simple craft. I was amazed at how quickly my daughter became well-behaved again. When my son was about 18 months, he began acting very wild as well so I began including him in our little experiments and again, I witnessed a new child. This chain of events is what inspired this blog and eventually my book, which I co-wrote with former Kindergarten Teacher and Author, Susan Case.
My husband (Hubby I will call him) is a doctor but still a resident and is gone ALL the time. Since he's a resident he hardly makes any money so I am the main "breadwinner". Yes, my husband isn't home much. Yes, the kids fight sometimes and thus cry. A lot. Yes, my house is often a mess and I hate traveling for work and being away from the kids. Yet my life is sooo FUN. I made the decision two years ago to never focus on the negative and it has made life so much easier. I have devoted myself to the pursuit of worthwhile activities. I research and come up with projects that help them learn, work on fine motor skills, social skills, or are just plain fun. You can keep up with my projects and ideas through my blog and through Pinterest. I love having new things for my kids to do and if I can give other Moms 30 minutes of blissful free time to do dishes, pay bills, or even eat bon bons, I've done my job!
