Levi’s Presentation

Share

Today, we had our homeschool co-op. My older two had prepared presentations, as usual; and I had given up on Levi. He *is* only three, after all. If he doesn’t want to, he doesn’t have to. The only reason he’s even down there during presentation is because he refuses to go to nursery. Well, while […]

Move Your Milk!

Share

Yesterday during dinner, Levi’s cup of milk was dangerously close to the edge of the table. “Move your milk!” I cried desperately as I remembered that there was nothing protecting the carpet under his chair. He looked up at me, reached out, grabbed his cup, and wiggled it. “Levi!” Frustration was creeping in.  “Stop! You’re […]

Oh, Levi. My Strange Little Boy Child.

Share

Levi is such a tactile little boy. He mushes his food. He tears paper. He eats dirt. And sand. And mulch. He pushes and shoves and bites and hits and takes what he wants. He spends half his day in time out. He’s definitely action-oriented. He’s a smart thing, he really is. He learned to […]

He Insists on Doing Things His Own Way

Share

I tried to work with Levi (21 months old) on his pincher grip.  I was using clothes pins.  I put one in his hand, squeezed the end with him, noted how it opened, and clipped it to the edge of a bucket. We did that a few times and I got called away.  In my […]

Potty Training the Third Child

Share

It would appear that our 21 month old is done with diapers. But I am not ready to potty train him. I don’t want to. I won’t. You can’t make me. With Olivia, she was willing and able to go in the potty until the novelty of the chore wore off.  When it was no […]

As Perfect As Our Life Gets

Share

This is the stuff Christmas movies are made of. We woke up to 2/3 of our children cuddling us in bed.  The third joined eventually (she’s a late sleeper).  Looking out the window, we were excited to see a winter wonderland awaiting. We made our way to the kitchen and listened to Christmas music while […]

A Record of Events (a.k.a. ramblerambleramble)

Share

Olivia did multiplication yesterday at breakfast.  Lunch?  Or was it today?  She was thinking while eating, then looked up and told me, “Three 2’s are 6!”  I was very proud.  And I told her so.  And then she said, “And four 2’s are 8!”  And I kissed her. Josh told Benjamin it was too muggy […]

And the Winner Is….

Share

I wrote down the name of everyone who got the answer correct on the Mountain Game and put them in one of our smaller stacking boxes.  And then gave the box to Olivia with instructions to pull one out. This was her first response: This was her second: Note the shift from bewilderment to defiance. […]

Splish-Splash, A Green Tea Bath

Share

He was playing with his toys in the corner of the room the last time my heavy eyes slid closed. The next time they jerked open was when I realized whatever dream I was enjoying should not have included such wet noises. Painfully ripped from blissful unconsciousness, I saw my eight-month old standing inches from […]
