It's the Little Things
Since staying at home and just being a Mom, I find myself looking for little projects to do in my little free moments throughout the day. This past week I started a preschool for Mia. I used to just teach Mia at home and do some fun things with her. Lately, I've really wanted some more social interaction for her and thought doing a preschool would be a great idea. I have a hard time accepting some of the "preschools" that are around. I find most of them are like a daycare and playtime and I can provide those things for her without spending money to do it. While the "preschools" may lack academic substance, they definitely have the social interaction on their side.
So I have 5 little people that I teach on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-12. I get so excited planning fun activities and teaching. Mia is having fun too even though she is the only girl. I have to say, she is the best student in my class. Of course, I don't show favoritism. What kind of teacher do you think I am? You can click on the link to the preschool on the right side bar and check out what we are doing.
This little thing inside me makes me so tired these days. I have to take a nap when Xander goes down just so I can make it through the day. I haven't thrown up yet and I don't think it is going to happen either. I almost don't feel nausea either. This baby just maybe perfect! As for the rest of my body, I sure feel pregnant. Some women are blessed with little strawberries or maybe little oranges, I unfortunately have grapefruits and when I am pregnant they become cantaloupes. (Sorry male species if you had to read that, it's just the truth!)
My kids are little blessings. Xander can now successfully open the front door and takes off any chance he can get. We don't have doorknobs but rather a handle that you pull down on. The front door locks, but when you open it on the inside it just automatically opens. CJ has lost both of her two front teeth and I love listening and watching her talk. It is so cute. Mia is writing letters all the time and I taught her her first sight word, "the". She pronounces it "duh" but all the same, she is excited to read a word.
