New Design!

As many of you long time readers know, from time to time I have changed the design of the blog. I've never been very good at it, and have always wanted to have it professionally designed. Now that The Kavanaugh Report is becoming more and more popular (over a 1,000 visitors in January!!) I knew now was the time to finally do it. So, check out our new professional design, thanks to the wonderful Becca at Jumping Jax Designs!  (Yes, this includes you secret rss/reader fans.)

::Side note:: While you're checking out the new site - Vote for Us on Top Mommy Blogs! The Kavanaugh Report is now #118 on the list - lets try to break into the top 100!! Also vote for picture of the week, turn out has been dismal this week - and I'm not just saying that because I'm losing. ::End side note::

Blogging friends if you are considering hiring a professional, I highly recommend Becca. She was great to work with, and obviously the final product turned out great. Jumping Jax Designs also does custom cards and invitations, so everyone should check out her site! 

This has seriously been a great month for The Kavanaugh Report and I hope the new design is just the start of all the good things to come!

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

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
