What She Said (The 3 yo Lorelei version)

by bosssanders on December 23, 2010 with 1 comment

1.  Why do you think the sky is blue?
Because the sun is yellow and water is blue.

2.  How do you think peanut butter is made?
Like, you put bread on it…

3.  How do you think shows get on TV?
I don’t know.

4.  Why do you think God sent you to our family?
Because I like Aurora.  I hug her.

5.  What does daddy do at work?
He rides a bicycle.

6.  What does mommy do?
Clean and you help me do school, do crafts, rest, sit on the couch, lay on the couch for 3 minutes and feed me fruit and macaroni and pasta.

7.  How does a tomato grow?
It grows really big like this house.  I can carry this house.

8.  What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be THIS huge – like a house.

9.  What do you do when you’re married?
We play.

10.  What do you think Heaven is like?
I will be married.  It will be heaven up in the sky and warm.

11.  Who do you want to be like when you grow up?
I want to be like daddy.  I want to be a girl.

12.  What do you want Santa to bring you?
I want a new sister that don’t hit.  Just don’t talk.  I want God to bring me some toys.

You know, Lorelei, Santa isn’t the same as God…

I know, but he can still bring me presents.  Both can.


Oh So Big

by bosssanders on December 7, 2010 with 1 comment

Every day, I’m amazed at how big my “little babies” are getting and Lala reminds me on a daily basis that she is not. a. baby!!

We’ve been experiencing some interesting changes around here, though.  Like, the constant 3 year old whining mixed with questions.  And, the melt-downs from both.

We’ve discovered that meal-time can be quite interesting…

If Rora likes her food, she can’t eat it fast enough…so she uses her fork AND her hands and shovels it in.  (Pictured: Lasagna)

If she doesn’t like it?  It gets crumbled and thrown on the floor or spit out and handed to you.  If you don’t take it, she throws it on the floor.

Sandwiches and sandwich-like foods (oreos, stacked crackers with cheese or peanut butter filling) get taken apart and the insides only eaten.

It’s insane, actually.

They both adore “school-time” and nap time has become a loosely interpreted idea for Lala.

I love them so much…

I love watching the way they interact with each other, how they love on each other.

Now, I just need to teach them that they don’t have to hit each other first in order to hug!

Flying through Pre-K

(click picture to buy on amazon)

Technically, we should be on week 9, but we’re not.  We’ve already made it to week 20 in this book.  I looked through a TON of inexpensive (and expensive) pre-k curriculum – and bought a lot too – but, this is definitely our favorite.  It’s easy (for me), engaging for her, and uses things we already have (but is open-ended and easy to change/adapt).  I just wish they had these handy books for EVERY grade!

Soon, we’ll be finishing up her Pre-K curriculum, so I’ve started scouting out a variety of new curriculum programs to try (and then review here!)  Although I’ll be looking for Kindergarten, most of the curriculum that offers Kindergarten lessons, also offer the other grade levels – so my finds will be applicable to any of you who homeschool or choose to supplement what your child learns elsewhere.

I’ll also be making a HOMESCHOOL FREE list, so check back for that too :)

NOTE FOR PR AGENTS AND MARKETING – I am now accepting homeschool curriculum, materials, and supplements.  If you are interested in sending your products for a review, please email me for more information at bosssanders(at)gmail(dot)com.
