Christine- Hope Selin gets more cooperative again so you can go out and enjoy.
Tell us something each kid is up to: Teddy loves playing hide and seek, playing chase, and following me around with the swiffer.
What are you looking forward to this month?:
Enjoying the last days of warm weather and summer:) We definitely have not had a heat wave here- the temperatures have often only been in the 60s!

Sarah - Just wanted to say that after working with 21 Kindergarteners this spring, the fact that Desmond is reading CVC words already is so so great! Even the 4-1/2 yo I tutor on the weekends is still struggling with those. He will be so far ahead of the game by the time he starts KG. Way to go Desmond!! :-D
AFM - Selin is starting to get into playing pretend with her baby dolls and stuffed animals. I put one of her old pajama tops on her baby doll the other day and she carried it around with her for days and even requested to nap with it! I gave her some other stuff to "dress" the baby with and it provided hours of entertainment. Just now I gave her a bowl for her stuffed dog to "drink/eat" out of and she thought it was great! Now she's carrying the dog all around the house. If only I had thought of these things sooner!
Any other ideas to keep a toddler busy so I can get stuff done online (mainly job hunting)? She loves to color but last time I left her alone with some crayons, she bit the top off one and colored on a few walls. :-/
I don't let David watch TV too much but when my sitter was sick I had David watching some of his favorite DVD's. We have some baby einstin ones and a few sesame street. He will watch them until they are over it's an idea. I second the crayons. David had blue and green poop one day because of it. So no more crayons here until he can learn not to eat them. He also colored on the walls too. Lucklily they are washable crayons. David will also sit and read a book or he plays with his tupperware containers in the kitchen. All the stuff he can play with , I have unlocked.
