My 2 1/2 year old has wanted to go to school since our neighbor gave him a brand new spongebob back pack. Unfortunately none of the preschools in our area take non-potty trained 2 year olds, so I looked into it a little bit, and decided to try a little improv homeschooling with some preschool curriculum I found online, and a great book that was reccommended at La Leche League. Join us on our journey!

C is for Cookie!
Each day we've been going over a letter of the alphabet & all the words that start with it. Today was C, so we decided we'd color, cut, and cook. So Moose colored in his letter c with his crayons, while we talked about [Larry the] Cucumber, cats, cookies, Cranky & Clarabel (from Thomas & friends), and the crab from Nemo.
then it was time to cut:
We are very careful to keep our other hand out of the way:
Then we decided to make Chocolate Cookies! We didn't have chocolate chips, so we grated some semi sweet chocolate squares- Moose thought it was better to just eat the squares right out of the package. (P.S. we couldn't cook in our nice Eli Manning jersey)
I'm a mother of 3- 2 little boys here with me, and a little girl in Heaven. I spend all my time parenting, writing music, taking photos, teaching Zumba fitness, and knitting. I started out in photography in high school, but really fell in love with the art when I had my son and wanted to preserve every memory of him at every stage. I fell in love with knitting when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was the first time I was brave enough to knit a whole sweater, because it only had to be, what, 8" long? Not all that much to rip out if I messed it up. I now design my own knitting patterns. It satisfies both the designer & math nerd inside of me. I recently became a licensed Zumba Instructor after falling in love with the program during my second pregnancy & hearing astonishment from my fellow students that I could keep up with the moves while pregnant.
