Did you know that I started blogging/websites when
my daughter was a preschooler?
In fact, my first website was dedicated to this age:
Psssst….Wanna see what CPP looked like when I first
started out in 2006? Pretty Rockin’ eh?
Now it’s 2011 and my Sissy is entering 3rd grade.
My Bubba is entering 1st grade.
And my Monkey is teetering on Tot-Preschool Age.
It FEELS like
It’s been so LONG since I’ve had a Preschooler.
And now my little Monkey is almost there.
Currently, Monkey is 2 years old and able to sit still
for about 4 1/2 minutes. A Day.
I know you think I’m exaggerating.
But, I love when people ASK ME what I do with Monkey
while I’m teaching the older children.
I really try not to burst out laughing.
If you only knew….
You see, usually when someone is asking that questions, what they
really want to know is:
WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS CRAZY MONKEY
WHEN I NEED TO TEACH _________.
(Fill in the blank with something that is hard to teach
when a buck naked, curly haired little primate is running circles
around your ankles, begging for “sippy” and “juice” and “cake” and “frogs”
and anything else that you don’t have in your pocket)
Cause somedays that’s really what it’s like.
Not all. But some.
(most days I really have to recall the words written in this book)
But, during the times in which my little Monkey wants
to quietly sit at the table for 4 1/2 mintues,
I want to have something fun and educational for him to do.
So tonight I made him some simple matching games,
with colorful REAL photographs that a little Monkey
Then (with all those F’s) I got to thinking that
I could make this into something a bit more FUN!
Something for my older kiddos to play:
A game for them to play in the wee hours of the morning
Perhaps long enough for a certain someone to sleep in
an extra hour or two.
So this is how I left the kitchen table:
I’m pretty sure my plan is going to work.
(I mean…What kid wants to go smell Mom’s morning breath
when they have a game like this to play?)
The cereal is in the bottom cupboard for a reason.
Psssst…. Wanna sleep in like me?
