A camera, a car roof, and a vacation

I made a mistake. Like a big one. I did something I never, ever, ever do.

Well, lets start at the beginning. I went on mini-vacation, to my parents, just me and Henry. We were having an awesome time. Just hanging out..with no plans, holiday, or obligations.


My Mom and I decided to head over to my Dad's office to show off Henry. We were trying to squeeze the visit between Henry's lunch and nap.


We were kinda rushed. As I was putting Henry in the car, my hands were full, so I casually placed my camera and Henry's sippy cup on the roof of my car. I put Henry in his car seat. We drove off.



By the time we took the first turn, we heard the sippy cup go flying. We figured, eh. It was just the sippy. No biggie. It wasn't until we were across town I realized I left my camera up there too.



We rushed back. But it was gone. Stolen, lost, whatever. No evidence of it anywhere.

Bye Camera. I'll miss you.


I was/am devastated. We lost some pictures, but thankfully most of the good ones have been blogged. But a new camera, is going to be tough on our budget. So for the time being, its cell phone pictures only. I apologize in advance.


And...lesson learned. Don't EVER, ever put anything on the roof of your car.


Will you still vote with terrible pictures?

Oh noooo! I'm so sorry :( We had a camera stolen when we were first married, and it had all our honeymoon pictures on it. I was so upset. I'm glad you had blogged some photos, though, and didn't lose all of them!

Oh noooo!!!!! :( :( I'm glad at least some of the photos were blogged! I totally left my Blackberry on the hood of my car and drove off once...it didn't survive. :(

I noticed Henry's Bumbleride! We have the Flyer, but in orange. At first I loved the orange, but now the more I see the color you have, the more I love it.
OMG! I LOVE my Bumbleride!! I thought long and hard about the orange. Both colors are pretty awesome!!

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
