She's A Going Concern...



Brynne is 19 months and into everything. She is actually pretty smart and knows when I tell her not to touch something but often she will just look at me and touch it anyway. That's when the "mommy-finger-flick" comes in, but then she moves on to something else and it starts all over again (note to self: flick hand harder).

This would be all fine if it were not for the fact that she moved from two naps to one the day we started homeschooling this fall. So, consequently she is up and with us during school, trying to get to Ava's markers, glue sticks, and scissors, and tearing up Jonah's worksheets. I had to talk to Jonah about saying "Bad Boo-Boo!" to her this morning ("Does Momma say 'Bad Joe-Joe to you?'")...

I have made the Little Terror a school box and a bean box that only come out when we do school. Nope, she plays with them for about three minutes (if at all) then goes on back to menacing the Living Room Homeschoolers. I guess school in the afternoon may be our lot for the time being...

It sounds like she and Sophie would be great friends, and no house or sibling would be the same again. Good luck and blessings on your schooling adventures.

Love, Anna

Don't you know the secret? Two hours in the crib, ten minutes out, 2 in, 10 out. :) You must admit it's just a tiny bit tempting...
By the way, thanks for the audio book link. My kids loved listening to the stories! Do they rotate new free ones through there?
Happy homeschooling :)
