Boy or Girl?

In just two weeks, Morgan and I have the big 2nd trimester ultrasound scheduled! I'm so excited I can hardly wait. Not only do want to see the baby, but I really want to learn if we are having a boy or girl. I think it will really help me connect to this baby and finally start believing this is all real. I should say we absolutely couldn't care less about a boy or girl -- I just want a healthy baby -- this is just for fun!

So, lets keep busy for the next two weeks by guessing the gender! I'll have a poll in the sidebar {right over there -----> } until next Monday night. The ultrasound is SUPER early in the morning on Tuesday, and I'll be happy to share right away -- no fancy gender reveals here. I think we will also share the name at that time, but I have to confirm that with Morgan.


Anyway, before you guess, here are some things to keep in mind {based on completely meaningless old-wives tales}
  • I had two dreams early on that the baby was a girl, but I've felt boy since then. 
  • Morgan is on the fence -- but is leaning boy 
  • The Chinese Gender chart says girl 
  • I've been craving salty foods -- particularly lunch meat and cheese {and I can't even eat cheese -- sad face} 
  • The baby's heartbeat has been between the low 160's and the mid 150's
  • Henry says the baby is a girl 
  • My skin has been a mess - lots of acne 
  • I had constant nausea during my first trimester, but none {thankfully!} now 
Now, leave your guess in the comments, or vote in the poll!

boy boy boy!!!!!!!!
I was definitely feeling very boyish before, and reading your comments just confirmed it! I voted for a boy!
Girl, you know I'm not one to buy into that nonsense, but for some reason if the Chineese sex chart says girl, I vote girl.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2019

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2019 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me. 
This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable. 

As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help, we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps me remain fle…

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return. 

That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,
