We did get ONE nice day to play outside. So, that was the busy day for Tot School.
I made a sensory bin! My first one!
|Contains: split peas (that we'd never eat), some brown rice (that we didn't like), cheap rigatoni dyed red, cookie cutters, ribbon, and a squishy pig. (The pig is way more fun to throw and never made it back)|
|I gave him a spoon and bowl and let him scoop.|
|He's good at it when he focuses.|
|We tried on the floor but that didn't work as well.|
|He liked fitting the cookie cutters into a bowl. (The fist is him telling me he needs to go potty)|
|It was also fun to line all of the cookie cutters on the edge of the table.|
We also played with the Geo Sorter toy this week.
|In one week he went from only being able to do one color to being able to do 4 with little difficulty...|
|But he wasn't tired or anything.|
|Mommy discovered an ant home at his feet *sigh*|
Okay, I must give some information before sharing the next photos...
I hate bugs. HATE HATE HATE them. This applies to most of the bug community. Yes, I understand that many are harmless and even helpful. BUT THEY'RE GROSS!! I have a phobia when it comes to most bugs. (Like, freak out and run screaming kind of thing)
However, I'm also dedicated to my son learning. So, when there was a cricket in the yard and I saw that he was interested in it I went inside and got a yogurt container AND I CAUGHT THE THING.
|That's right. There's a cricket in there.|
I let it go after a bit. 1) I don't want bugs in my house. 2) It seemed kind of mean to let my son beat it to death...
|He may have tried to squish it with a rock...|
Oh, we got Franklin a doll (yes, a DOLL) because he's been so interested in the baby (and babies all over). We wanted him to have is own baby to take care of (and be able to carry)
He was super excited:
How does Jonathan spend Tot School?
My favorite photo of the week:
Franklin fell, Mommy couldn't get to him, so Daddy put Jonathan down quickly...and he never woke up.
