Wordless Wednesday- Bad Drivers



Tot Tray Tuesday: Week #1

So, we’ve officially been doing home tot school for about eight weeks with Ladybug. It is going great. I am loving doing tot trays with her, watching her learn to manipulate new and interesting objects. It has inspired me to start a series of posts dedicated to our tot trays each week. The plan is to assemble the trays on Monday, link them up with pictures on Tuesday, and then write review of progress and such over the weekend. Feel free to link up with your trays for the week at the bottom (just link back to this page in your post.)

So without further ado, I give you the first weeks tot trays.

Feel free to link up, I look forward to seeing what everyone else is doing with their trays!

Nope, Nope, Nope

Nope, nope, nope. This isn’t happening. There is no way my baby boy is seven months already, there is no way he is finally sleeping in a crib. It is impossible that he is sitting unassisted, and also incredulous that he is reaching mobility.  The boy pushed himself backwards three feet yesterday on his stomach. This is getting real.


We have reached the point of no return, that moment you realize your baby is closer to a year than he isn’t. That moment you realize your youngest is growing faster than you anticipated.  I find all the joy a mother can get from watching her baby grow and learn. I just get a little sad thinking we will never experience this moment again and a sad thought of my baby is just growing too fast. It’s only a minute of sadness and then I’m back to loving every moment.

Moms (and dads) out there, do you get that bittersweet feeling as your kids grow into themselves? How do you handle these moments of happy/sad?
