My name is Megan. I am a stay at home mom to one amazing daughter and I am a former teacher. While adjusting to staying at home, I realized that I needed to make it more my own. Lets be honest. It can be kinda boring taking care of a baby. Eat, sleep, poop, eat, sleep, spit-up, bath, poop, another bath, eat... phew! While cleaning up poopy diapers is tons of fun, I needed more. I was going a bit crazy not feeling as if I had an outlet. I also felt trapped by the day. I was overwhelmed by the lack of structure and found myself being lazy rather than productive and engaged. I decided that I needed to make a change. Thus, came little lessons for my little one. Simple little lessons that I could easily weave into our weekly schedule. By doing this I would be able to fulfill my need to have an outlet and it would also make me a better mom. I decided to help keep myself accountable and to help out other parents that I would share our little lessons in the form of a blog.
Each month will have a theme. Each week there will be 1 book that you read that goes with the theme. Each week there will be one craft or activity that goes with the theme/book. I will include supply lists and extension activities too. The lessons should be able to work with many ages and offer a great starting point to discuss the theme in more depth. How much or how little you do is up to you and your schedule. Have fun with it!
