Well its getting HOT here in Manitoba. I took the kids out for a walk this morning, then we played outside till snack and diaper change time. Then back outside. But after a while the temperature got even hotter, so we had to come in because my daycare babies are just too little for that kind of heat.
My BF took my son and stepdaughter to the zoo, they just left. I lathered them up with sun screen so they hopefully don’t burn. The little ones are down for their naps. Its my one babies last day today, so we are having special muffins for snack. I’m going to miss that guy!
Yesterday Wesley’s senior tutor came over and he did great. She is going to try and talk the consultant into bring more difficult programs for him.
His printing and reading is coming along great! We have been using Headsprout Early Reading program for a couple of weeks now. I’ll be writing more about it in a few days. I’m so glad we were able to review this product!! We are still doing Reading Eggs but he is slowly losing interest in it. I think even though he is technically on Map 9 we may back track to Map 5. The reason I think this is as soon as we started reading Map 5’s Box Set at nap time I noticed him struggling a little. Not for every word, but here and there. So I want to make sure we are building that foundation strong before pushing him too far. Hopefully if we kick it back a little he will be more interested again.
I’m so excited for tomorrow!! My hubby booked a spot for our family and his aunts family(who have kids the same age as us) to camp on the beach! I’m looking forward to our mini getaway!
Well I’m off to get somethings done around here!
Have a great weekend!

It really hit me today. By my son being in daycare from 11.5months old till he was almost 5years old. I missed so much of his life. It was a nessessity. There was not much I could do, being a single mother. I had to put a roof over our head and food in our bellies, but today while I sat and played with my daycare babies, I couldn’t help noticing all the things there parents were missing. And with that all the things I missed with my son.
They say the little things matter, and they do… I laughed as I watched babies who could barely talk yell, “touch down!” and they through a foam ball down to the floor. I cuddle them when they are hurt, read them stories, teach them to share… This is all stuff a complete stranger taught my son. I promise myself, I will NEVER work outside the home full time while I have children who need me. I want to raise my children.
With my son, he still has his tutor that comes to do therapy with him, but they are upstairs and come down to see me often. I can sit down and have 3 meals a day with him. I can read with him on his breaks and as soon as my daycare babies are gone home for the day, we sit and do his school work for 45mins or so. Then because I haven;t spent hours in the car commuting and have been picking away slowly at house work through out the day, I have time to read more then one book at night with him. Today is our second week doing out 1500 book challenge and we are right on schedule at 58 books read 🙂
Well I’m off to get some printouts for Wes and the daycare babies relating to our theme next week, cows and summer 🙂
Have a great evening!
