Attention Metro Transit Riders!

Dear Metro Transit Readers (or any mass transit user):

I have noticed recently that everyone could use an update on the "rules" of riding the bus. Clearly I'm the authority since, at 24 years old, I've never had a drivers license and ride the bus more than the average user. Here are some rules that everyone should keep in mind while riding the bus:
  1. Use the back door! It exists for a reason. No one (especially me) wants to wait while you slowly move past the back door to make your way to the front. There is nothing special about the front door.
  2. Being fat is not a disability. Don't waste everyone's time by requiring the bus driver to put down the ramp. Walk down the two stairs, it wont kill you (although, the McDonald's in your hand might).
  3. Have your transit card ready when getting on the bus. Everyone on the bus knows you just spent 8 + min waiting for the bus to come, so use that time wisely and take the damn cash out of your wallet. Better yet, go get a Go-To Card so we never have to wait for you.
Bottom line, I don't want to wait for you, I have better things to do then sit on the bus (and maybe you do too). Be considerate and everyone will be happier. OK. Thanks.

Nicole

Rant over - I'm sure this will solve all my metro transit problems ;-)

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

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! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. 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 toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
