For the past past week or two, I haven't been blogging much. I seem to have been in another world. And honestly, I'm not sure I can tell you where. I think my brain has been so obsessed with Sprout's 2nd birthday, can't believe she's going to be 2 next week. My parent's visit (yea!). Our crazy mixed up life. Keeping up with Sprout and just trying to keep up with life in general.
I had all of these ideas and objectives about what I wanted to do over the past few weeks, and I feel like I have accomplished very little. Even with Sprout, I have had ideas as to what I wanted to do with her, and for the most part it just hasn't happened.
The other day, while I was doing laundry, Sprout came into the laundry room (where her supplies are stored) and pulled out the paint and a tray to put it in. It was almost time for bed, so I told her that we would paint the next day and put the paint on the counter. Then next morning, she was sitting next to me on the couch, while I was talking on the phone. I looked at her to find that she had opened the paint, and had a little in the tray (thankfully not all over my couch). Man, did I feel oblivious!!! I got her set up at her easel with the paint she picked out. As she painted, I thought about the fact that this wasn't an activity I picked for a tot tray, or an art project I planned out, but that my daughter was having a great time. Isn't that what it's all about???
The other thing we've been doing a lot recently is Preschool Time Online. Sprout really enjoys this as she works on letters, numbers, shapes, computer skills, etc with all of her Disney friends. I love watching her as gets something. It amazes me how she picks up on the things. She pointed at the letters on The B Book and said "B-O-O-K." I know she didn't really spell a word, but I loved listening!!
We've also been trying to get outside, but with the crazy hot weather we have here, it hasn't been much.
Though this isn't a typical Tot School week for us, I am going to link up with Tot School, as this is what we have been up to recently. I will try to do a post of the other activities we've done when I have a chance.
