On the school front

How to make spelling fun? Let the kids squirt shaving cream all over the dining room table and trace their words in the foam. They had a BLAST :). Especially my very hands-on man-cub. I couldn't persuade a single one of them to break concentration and smile at the camera.

This was such a normal day for us. I have missed normal. Emma has struggled with vertigo since November. As you can imagine, reading and doing schoolwork while the room is spinning is pretty intense. But today it wasn't an issue, and I couldn't be more thankful. We played, all of us together, at the same time. All of my baby chicks in a clutch. It was peaceful, and we took total advantage of it. I can only hope it is a sign of things to come.

Dang, Jennifer--you are so much better of a mom than I am. There is NO way in you know where that my children would be allowed to make a mess like that all over my kitchen!

It wasn't too bad. Me and a washcloth got it up easy. and lets not talk about being a better mom. The "tooth fairy" has stood Chloe up two nights in a row... /sigh massive mom fail.

Hello you!!

I tried that and all my kids were like no thank you! I was astounded!!! But pull out playdough they play for hours 12 year old included!

Kids are so funny! Mine still dig the playdough also :). I found some nicely scented playdough on Amazon, it smells like peppermint, or lavender. They love that.
