4 RAD Toddler Touch and Feel Books


Lifestyle

Bittersweet Sensory All my life I have had this weird ‘thing’ with touching different textures. To this day I walk through a store and run my fingertips along the items displayed for sale. Just like a child. I’m not entirely sure why, I often find when I touch a certain fabric I get thrown into a […]

Mothers Day Craft for Toddlers


Lifestyle

Nothing for Mothers Day Last year I didn’t get anything for Mothers day. Granted, Gregory was 1 and his gift was me being able to wake up to him every morning. But still, nothing to commemorate or remember Mothers day 2015 by. In fact, I don’t remember my first Mothers day either. Like, they weren’t celebrated […]

Sensory Play – Balloon Play


Lifestyle

Toddler Balloon Play Activity I am always on the hunt for a new activity for Gregory to try. Being relatively new to the world still, this isn’t much of a challenge.

The Montessori Bedroom


Lifestyle

I can’t stop reading and vacuuming information in about Montessori. I feel like there is so much going on inside my little head that it is getting all jumbled together and I need to start writing it down. Also, writing things down and being able to explain/teach something only shows you that you fully understand […]

Sensory Play – Newspaper


Lifestyle

  My Library is Resourceful I love the library. Books, movies, internet, information… what’s not to love? Our little family went for a stroll last weekend and stopped in the library to grab a movie for Adrien. On the way out I noticed the newspaper was available.

Montessori The Weaning Glass


Uncategorized

  The Weaning Glass I remember the day our sippy cups were dirty and I was too lazy to clean one. So instead I reached for my cup and let Gregory drink from it. He had done it before many times, it was always a fun surprise because he was copying us. Watching him drink […]

Montessori Basics

What is the Montessori Method? So with all this talk about how we discovered the Montessori method, and now that you’ve seen Gregory’s floor bed set up, I think it about time to start elaborating more on what exactly Montessori is.

Sensory Play – Clean Window Paint

I was trying to think of a fun way to utilize the sunshine that we get to enjoy right now with this weather. It’s still rather cold outside, but that sun makes my days so much better.

Sensory Play – Colourful Yogurt


Lifestyle

The other day while making dinner I realized that Gregory wasn’t very interested in the process and being involved, but he wanted my attention and be with the action. Set up in his highchair, I quickly tried to think to of a solution and remembered this blog post I read and thought I could totally modify […]

Montessori Bed Update


Uncategorized

So if you remember this post here I told you we had recently discovered the rad Italian parenting style – Montessori. There has not been a crib in our home for some time now, in its place is a floor bed. Everyone loves it. Gregory sleeps with no more protest than normal, and this time when […]
