Tot School

~Krash is currently 36 months old~

I am happy to say we are slightly falling into a new normal and it feels great. Thanks for the kind words and prayers from my posts this past week. I am feeling so much better and can see the light at the end of the tunnel now!

Krash is still in love with Ladybug, he likes to, “pet him,” yes he calls her a him…it’s so funny!We are enjoying our new deck SOOO much! What a blessing this is to us, living in the inner city. We almost feel like we are on vacation when we are out there! I am trying to bring different toys out there for the boys to play with, they loved having the block table…I snapped some photos this week of just the trays and will probably continue to do this. I don’t ever want to take away from my focused time with K to take photos, and I miss a lot of sharing that way. This tray is a perfect example! I was completely engaged with K as we played “Tot Ball.” He used the bat like a golf club and we rolled the ball back and forth on the ground together. Great for releasing some energy and for coordination! It was a very soft squishy ball, so perfect for inside.
Here’s another tray I put out for Krash. I gave him a bucket with colored ping pong balls and little craft cups with matching colored dots, for him to sortI had him close his eyes as he reached in for a ball, he loved that!!!I also put out counting bears with stacking cups. I only put the matching colors out of the bears so we could sort.He did perfectly with the sorting, and really enjoyed it…Then we worked on stacking, this was the first time he really seemed to get the size sequence. He couldn’t do it on his own but I was able to just talk him through it and not do it for him!
Starfall was a big hit this week, and K is finally learning to use the mouse on his own a bit.
The exploring tray is still up and continues to be a big hit, he is finding new things to do with it every day. He calls the pom poms his gumballs!
We had fun making letters and reading How to Build an A, this is SUCH a great book, I highly recommend buying it if you don’t already have it!!!I brought out his name cards, he only wanted to do Pop Pop!
I loved seeing K do this in the pool, knowing he learned how to use a funnel from his tray work!!!Krash and Pac Man spent TONS of time outside this week too! K learned how to use the super soaker and the boys are so funny to watch together!!!Finally, my favs of K this week, here he is saying “punch me” which he learned from Wii Boxing ;)…And hanging in his car…

If you have a tot (approximately ages 1-3) at home, join in the fun and share what you’re doing with your tot! Here’s how to get started if you’re new…

If you’ve never read this: Go HERE 1st for more details- please do!!! Then if you have any ideas you’d like to share, link up your exact post to Mr Linky (if you have questions about how to do that, let me know in a comment or email-links to homepages will automatically be deleted).

New: when you add your name(blog name) to Mr. Linky will you put your tot’s age (in months) after it, like this: 1+1+1=1 (36 mos)? I think this will help new readers a lot as they look for ideas for their specific aged tot!

If you are unsure of how to add your direct link to Mr Linky-I added a tutorial with photos here, scroll down to see it!

EDITED: If Mr Linky is not showing up, please leave your link in the comments below. Mr Linky is having major system issues and is not showing up here or on Totally Tots. If it isn’t resolved soon, I will go to listing your links in the post myself so we can all continue to share.
