A few bits of announcements today that I think you may be interested in:
First up.... My friend Michelle from A Little Tipsy is celebrating her second blogiversary with a big music video. Guess what?? About 20 bloggers are strutting their stuff in this video including me. It's definitely worth a good laugh. So come and check it out! I made a complete fool of myself and had a lot of fun doing it!
Also, I have been receiving A LOT of e-mails and questions about Mommy School. The big dreaded question was, "Are you going to continue Mommy School?"
The answer is a definite "YES!" I just didn't know when I would be ready to dive in again!
If you are new to Oopsey Daisy, I started a simple at-home preschool program to help Little Man learn letters, colors, numbers, shapes, and themes. However... I was spending upwards of 14 hours preparing printable packets to share. Unfortunately, I feel that something's gotta give. After moving in to a new home, celebrating the holidays, etc, I finally feel ready to start up Mommy School again with Little Man. I desperately want to share our weekly learning fun with you. I am just not sure the best format for sharing my ideas. Perhaps I will just show pictures, a simple lesson plan, or a much slimmer packet of ideas.
I want to keep it real here on this blog, so let me be honest with you about a few things. The large packets I prepared require A TON of work and a lot of late nights, but I wanted to share them with you because my attitude is I made this for my family, and now I want to share with you. Too many people have taken advantage of my willingness to share what I have created. The negative feedback and the work required to deal with negative comments and demands can quickly become overwhelming. My family must come first. I want to continue creating printables for the readers who stop to say, "Thank you." Isn't it amazing how those two words can brighten someone's day?!
With business out of the way, let's move on to the good stuff! Here are a few little rays of sunshine... some of my happy snippets during this week:
Let's start out with this handsome man. After letting me sleep in on Valentine's Day, I woke up to see Mr. Daisy cleaning house! I don't know if he has ever looked quite so handsome to me!
What do you think of my Valentine's Day roses?? Not bad, eh? Little Man helped his Daddy select these roses from Costco. It was meant to be a surprise, but Little Man spilled the beans! He loves Costco too much to keep it a secret!
We went out for lunch on V-Day, too. (Have I mentioned that I have the best hubby ever?!) Little Man was chowing down on a pickle, his new favorite food!
After a long week of being out of town, some father & son time was in order. They did a little reading..
They quickly moved outdoors, where Daddy was launching Little Man into the air! Of course he loved every minute of it!
He was flying through the air!
While Daddy was trying to melt the snow by spraying it with a hose, Little Man was looking on from his play house. He is so interested in everything his Daddy does!
What were the best moments of your week this week?
I am very excited about this week on Oopsey Daisy, so stay tuned!
