Our Funny Boys

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Little guy keeps us laughing constantly. (Well………unless he’s being a strong willed 3 year old but that’s another story……)   This morning, I was eavesdropping on Nathan and James in the kitchen. James asked, “Do you want a bagel?” The bagels are maple cinnamon by the way. Nathan replied, “Yes with ketchup.” James said, “No. […]

Our little Nathan isn’t exactly so little anymore. He’s getting so big. I do realize that this is a good and necessary part of life. After all, I do have a child who is bigger than his father now. But sometimes, I wonder how can it be that my baby will be 3 this summer? […]

The Bonus

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

It’s no secret that I wished for many children. I have always loved babies and kiddos and my dreams always included a big crazy house full of children. That’s not the family that God gave us. Once in awhile, I still wish we had more children but  I’m beginning to see the joys and bonuses […]

His current favorites are Raffi Especially this one–   He also likes Laurie Berkner cracks him up. —   He enjoys some oldies too which cracks ME up. You ain’t nothin but a hound dog, Lollipop, […]

Toddler Chores

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Nathan enjoys helping me with chores. It’s a “fun” thing for him, but I also want him to learn to help and to work around  the house. Here’s his list: *Put dirty clothes in the bin *Take dry clothes out of the dryer *Put wet clothes in the dryer (I toss them on the floor […]

Patriotic Toddler Activities

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

  Now and then, I have been getting some fun activities together for Nathan to do something different. I’m going way back to my preschool teaching years and thinking of some themed things for him to do. Fourth of July is one of my very favorite holidays, so I gathered a few red white and […]

Pin It

22 Months

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

    This picture pretty much sums up this little boy. He’s so funny and is constantly making us laugh. He’s a little chatter box and a huge copy cat. He loves making us laugh and often does it with the things he says. He thinks his big brother is the best thing ever. He […]

Smoothie Bowl

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

I’ve instituted a new plan in the freezer! I try to feed Nathan almost all organic fruits and veggies. It’s something that’s important to me–no worries if it’s not important to you. The rest of us have what we can afford…sometimes it’s organic and sometimes it’s not. Many days the little guy manages to chow down […]

Having a new baby gives me the opportunity to rethink my decisions on parenting and schooling. It’s interesting to me my thoughts as I think through things I did for James and what I want to do or change for Nathan. I am leaning toward more “unschooling” for the very early years but I’m not […]

This Makes Me Insanely Happy

Friday, March 27th, 2015

    This little pile near my front door made me smile yesterday. Big boy shoes and little boy rain boots and his rubber ducky. I’m not sure why the rubber ducky isn’t in the tub, but apparently it needed to be by the rain boots. I’m so very thankful for my two precious boys. […]
