Blogher13 Blog Hop #1!

As I announced, Jayne at The Naptown Organizer and I are hosting a monthly Blogher13 blog hop to try and get to know some bloggers before we head to the conference in July!

BlogHer Link Up

So, lets all get to know some Blogher13 bloggers. I'll go first...

If you're visiting from the hop, welcome! Stick around, I'd love to get to know you too. 

Where do you blog?

Well, duh. Here, at The Kavanaugh Report.

What do you blog about?

I blog about all things parenting and all things Henry. More specifically, I share a lot about our Montessori inspired tot school and how I keep Henry busy to keep from going insane. On the more serious side, my pregnancy lossesstruggle to conceive another baby, and life with a high needs baby/toddler all make their way into the mix every now and then too.  

I also have a couple cute dogs...and a husband...and a job. You know, the usual.

Is this your first time going to Blogher?

It sure is! I cannot wait to be around "my people." Blogher13 will officially be my first blogging conference. 

What's your favorite post you've written in the last year?

While it wasn't the easiest post for me to write, I think it my post about my first miscarriage and its connection to finding our new house was my favorite because its had the most impact on my family over the last year... 

What are you most looking forward to at Blogher13?

While I am excited about so many things about Blogher {hello, five kid-free days in the best city ever! And stalking Amalah from a hotel hallway -- just kidding -- kind of} I think I am most looking forward to hanging out with people who understand blogging and don't judge me or think it's weird to post my every random thought to the internet.

Where else {Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Etc.} can we find you?

I'm very stalk-able you can find The Kavanaugh Report on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Beware, I like to post cute pictures of my kid.

Seriously, thanks for stopping by! Now, go visit some other awesome blogs and bloggers. Are you going to Blogher13 in Chicago? If so, link up and tell us all about yourself!

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
