So... you are back in a routine after the Christmas sugar high, right? You saw on our last Mom2Mom post that Tot School can be fun and really very simple. We would LOVE for you to send us an update as to how you may have adapted Tot School to your little guy or gal. Readers are eating this stuff up! You can easily do just that under the "comment" section below. Who knows, maybe your household will be featured in week 3. If you include your email we can work on getting pictures of your Tot to post as well! As promised we have a sample of what Allyson and Titus did for week 2.
Here's what they did...
Monday: "B" I wrote the letter "B" on a piece of paper and included different words that started with "B". I had Titus repeat the words after me. We also explored a bucket of objects that started with the letter "B".
Tuesday: "blue" We built a blue Lego tower, made blueberry muffins together, created “blue foam” and searched for blue items inside of it, and read our Little Blue Truck books.
Wednesday: "2"- For the number two, I tried to pair objects that we were already playing with and while continually touching them with our index finger we counted “one, two.”
Thursday: "squares"- We used the same Playdoh from week 1 to create squares. I also drew some squares on paper and held Titus’ hand on the pencil as he tried as well.
God orchestrates everything that happens in our lives to somehow work for our good when we love him and are called for His purposes. His goal? ... to conform us and our children to the image of Christ. (See Romans 8: 28-29) Our job as parents? ... to allow Him to use us in reaching that goal. There's no better legacy that we could leave to our children. Enjoy your day!

Being a mom is not the easiest job in the world but it's one of utmost importance. Sometimes we just need to share the ideas, difficulties and joys in the journey of raising children. We pray Mom2Mom can help.
