Under Three Only!

A young mom sent me an email stating, "I've worked out a schedule that should go well for schooling the children, and have my husband to help me on the off days. My biggest concern is HOW DO I SCHOOL WITH A TODDLER??????" Capital letters and multiple question marks are original and speak of her desperation. 

Some thoughts on the subject:

Make sure your toddler is on his/her own schedule.  Make use of nap times to do your most intense one on one subjects.  For our family, that always seemed to be the reading lesson with those budding readers, but maybe in your home it is math or hand writing. Keeping that toddler's belly full and his body well rested will be to everyone's benefit. 

Library Day

Library day was a huge highlight of our week when my children were little.  But it wasn't without some stress.  Trying to keep little ones quiet, finding quality literature that you are willing to read your children, managing an infant in a car seat, keeping track of toddlers who need to hold hands, and carrying a bag of books and a purse can make the whole experience not worth the energy.  Add in a 1st or 2nd grader who can read EVERYTHING and it just might seem easier to stay home!
