Creepy Elmo

From time to time, I've posted pictures of Henry on his baby monitor. And let's all admit, they are a tiny bit creepy. Right? Especially the ones when Henry is awake. It's the eyes!  

Well, about a month ago Henry decided he had to sleep with a small Elmo and Big Bird. Shortly after this started, Morgan and I started noticing something -- Elmo was always watching. ALWAYS. Talk about creepy. It's literally the eyes...



all...



the...


time.



And every now and then we luck out and get two-for-one and get both sets of eyes staring at us. Lucky us.


Seriously. What a creeper. ::checks to make sure Elmo isn't watching::

Too funny! Elmo IS a creeper!
Ha ha. The video monitor eyes are so creepy! And AJ has figured out that something is different about the red light of the camera so he just stares into it. Creepy! Oh and we just had our first toy that turned on in the middle of the night scare. Talk about creepy hearing that thing out of the blue.

That's too funny. We want a video monitor for when Lennox moves to a toddler bed, she sleeps with so many stuffed animals, I can only imagine all the creepers we will have!!

I agree, the images on the baby monitors are the creepy stuff of horror flicks. You should try adding a cat's eyes to the mix! They look like creatures coming to steal your soul. Eeek. Makes me scared to get in bed some nights. :)
Sometimes I honestly can't figure out my kids body vs. his stuffed animals...then I see the beedy eyes starting at me on the monitor and freak. lol

That is hilarious! None of Andrew's toys in his crib have big enough eyes to show up on the monitor, but his light up when he's laying there starting at the camera and it's creepy.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

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,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

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
