I’m a participant in two Tuesday memes. The first is To-Do Tuesdays with Lisa from Crazy Adventures in Parenting. Here's my starter list for this week (I'm sure you'll see some leftovers from last week):
Plastic over basement walls Price sump pumps Call C back to set up a meeting (1 hour) Call picture studio about shipping portraits Call new ped’s office in RC Call oral surgeon Contact T in HS and set up weekend meeting Move CRAYOLA stuff to basement (there’s some history here) Sort through two more boxes (mega bonus points if you do more) Finish guest blog post for recipe (Thank you, Karen, for inviting me!) Finish awards blog post Decide on birthday plans Get lost in bloggyland…daily, if you’re lucky! HA!
I’m also a continuing participant in Tot Talk Tuesdays started by Niecey of The Monkeys and Me.
I just want to note that we're now into the "Mommy can we please _________? It's okay with Daddy if it's okay with you" stage. And, unfortunately, we've both begun the "ask your mom" and "ask your dad" tactic, thereby only encouraging it. Anyone else fall into this habit??
The last couple months, our 5-year-old has been trying to switch from "can I" to "may I" when appropriate. In turn, it often turns into: "Mommy, can I may go ride my bicycle?" or today "Mommy, can you may please get me some more?"
Also, this week we were complimenting our 3-year-old on something he did all by himself. He looked all serious and said, with enthusiastic voice inflection, "Yeah, I'm drowing [growing] up!"
Remember, if you want to join in on either of these memes, just click each image above to be taken to the main page for each one. Have fun!!

I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
