Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
Today, I was the least prepared for preschool that I have been all year. Luckily it was just a Valentines theme so there wasn't anything too huge to concentrate on. We did the letter V and the nursery rhyme "My Valentine." I let the kids cut up heart doilies with scissors and decorate a paper V with the doilies and some glitter glue.
We read several Valentines themed stories and did our calendar. We sang our jungle songs from last week again. Then we did several puzzles and played the game "The Cat And The Hat, I Can Do That." It has a lot of props, uses large motor skills, helps kids learn right vs. left and is always a favorite at our house. The kids were laughing their heads off. We also played a couple of board games to practice counting. We used valentines erasers to practice patterning and sorting.
We made cookies decorated with frosting and candy.
We decorated hearts with do a dots. I love our do a dot markers and then we played in the sensory bin. It was a pretty low key morning.
After we picked Red Fish up from preschool a few friends stopped by and finished the cookies off with her.
