Last Weekend

Last weekend was the first time in a long time that Big M and I got to spend some quality 1-on-1 time together.  Since Lil’ M arrived on the scene, our solo Mommy & Me dates have become a thing of the past.  I spend lots of quality time with Lil’ M when Big M is at preschool, so last Saturday was really special, and we both enjoyed it.

First, we headed to one of Big M’s first friend’s birthday parties.  We met this family when Big M was about 8-9 months old, at our first ever Mommy & Me class at MyGym.  Three years later, we are all still friends – it has been so much fun to watch these kiddos grow up together…

And the birthday party was a return to the scene of where we all first met.  If you’ve never been to a MyGym, we can’t recommend it enough.  Both my girls have loved their time there, and they put on a great birthday party for any age group.  We had Big M’s first birthday there, and the one this weekend for preschoolers was just as awesome.

Post-party, with Daddy home with Lil’ M, we continued our mother-daughter outing with a little pampering at the nail salon.  We don’t do this very often – in fact, I was finally able to use a gift certificate I got for my birthday back in January!

Gotta get those toes looking sharp for sandal season!  How was your weekend?  Stay tuned for next week’s report – Big M’s first dance recital is this weekend!!!

Now I Know My ABCs…

At nearly 4, Big M has mastered singing the alphabet and recognizing her letters and is now working on letter sounds and letter formation.  Lil’ M, approaching 2, is still working on singing her ABCs, and thinks all letters are A or M!  This week, our featured favorites are all awesome activities you can do at home foster your child’s ABCs expertise over the summer.

First up, we loved A Little Pinch of Perfect’s Q is for Queen post.  Including a free printable, this is a full fledged lesson, including a craft, as well as a royally-inspired math game.

And since you all already know I am a sucker for trash to crafting treasure, it’s no surprise that I loved this recycled plastic bottle turned into a fly craft from Stella 123’s F is for Fly post.

Last but not least, a recurring featured blogger, Hands On As We Grow always has great ideas, combining gross motor and learning activities.  This week is no exception with her Fun Ways to Learn on the Trampoline, featuring ABCs and 123s.
