TAT: Confessions

Mom confessions? Yeah, I have a few of those:

  • Henry pronounces "cold" like "ho." I laugh every time. 
  • I swear, a lot. Even in front of Henry. 
  • A serious one. I'm sick of breastfeeding. Like, very over it. But, I feel way to guilty to stop. Also this probably deserves its own post. 
  • I let Henry watch TV a little more than I should. 
  • I feel more than a little pang of jealousy when I see pregnant strangers. I'm working on this. 
  • Henry knows his way around You Tube better than I do. 
  • I don't spend money on myself. I just don't. Nothing makes me feel more guilty

Don't we all? :) Every mom has them - like letting the kids pick for themselves and eat dry cereal and leftover pizza for dinner because I'm still trying to finish the 2 week menu and grocery list.... or just throwing a towel over the wet spot on the little's bed instead of changing the sheets because it's the middle of the night and I'm really not awake enough to get the other girl off the bed that's still asleep, just to change sheets and start laundry! We all have them.... just keep them hiding in deep dark closets that only our husbands can see :sometimes: LOL :)
It would piss me off every time I saw someone pregnant before lk. FYI for some reason target is always overrun with them.
I don't spend money on myself either and I also let Carina watch too much TV ;)

I don't spend money on myself, either! When my clothes are literally falling apart and my husband all but forces me to go to the store, I feel so guilty even trying them on that sometimes I tear up! Argh.

I swear a lot in front of E too, oops! I really need to cut back!

I am also getting tired of breastfeeding, but would feel horrible just yanking it away from E cold-turkey. I would love to see a post on your thoughts on this!

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

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
