Toddle Along Tuesday: My Mom

Tuesday, time to toddle! This week's topic is your mom. I'm told that my Mom does in fact read this blog from time to time so -- Hi Mom!

But for those of you that don't know my mom, let me tell you, she is great! A few facts (yes, facts, not opinions) about my mom:

  • She super creative and makes beautiful scrapbooks. I aspire to have the creative energy she does. 
  • She loves chocolate martinis and could easily drink me under the table. 
  • My mom is an excellent cook.
  • My mom is an even better baker. 
  • She eats peanut butter, jelly, and bacon sandwiches.
  • My mom stayed at home with us growing up and almost always had a freshly made/baked snack when we came home. It amazes me to think about the effort she made to do that everyday. 
  • She can wrap gifts like non-other. Simply perfect and beautiful.
  • She almost always closes her eyes when you take her picture.
  • My mom is tough - if you need something taken care of at a customer service counter, bring my mom. She gets everything she wants and more.  
  • She is an awesome Grandma, and Henry totally lights up around her. 
  • Shes amazingly beautiful, I can only hope I age half as gracefully as she has. 

I love you, Mom. You're seriously the best, and I don't tell you that nearly enough. 

What is your mom like? Link up and share!

Ni Nicole! Your mom is so beautiful! I eat peanut butter and bacon sandwiches sometimes, but never with jelly! I'll have to give that a try! It's nice to meet you! I found you through TAT! ~ Sarah

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
