Fun: What could be more fun than playing with a bean bag toss, riding your bike, and spitting on ants? Boy, this four year old has it made.
Arts & Crafts: This was from my post on Wednesday, he is so proud of his work. I love to read with Dino and work on comprehension skills with him. Whether it’s drawing scenes from the book, talking about what happens next, or acting like characters from the book. I drew the fish, but he drew the small fish all around Stanley.
Messy: Can someone HELP me clean Dino’s room? No matter how much I make him clean there are toys everywhere. I am going to do a major overhaul in his room, time change some things now that he’s older. Eventually buying him a new dresser and a desk and chair. I’m going to chuck his toy bin and keep everything in the closet, so he’ll have more room to play and color/write.
Effort: I’ve tried knitting before and I scared the person by throwing the needles across my living room into wall. I don’t think she would have ever tried teaching again after that, not that I wanted to try anymore. Yesterday, I was chatting with with one friend at another friends baby shower (another blessed mom). Alanna knitted a spectacular baby sweater with buttons and all. I was mystified, of course. Alanna suggested that crocheting might be better for me, knowing of my tantrum with the knitting needles. So, you know me, I went to a craft store and bought yarn and two crochet needles, in case one suddenly disappeared *whistling and looking away form the screen*. To might delight it was easier
after watching numerous videos and crying at the foreign language of crocheting. While I still HAVE A LONG WAYS to go and have to learn to not pull the yarn too tight, I find the movement and only having one dagger crochet needle is easier and smoother.
Can anyone suggest any videos/tutorials/sites that helped them with crocheting? I am having troubling starting a new line and it looks weird on the ends. Even if I end up with SUPER long and thin scarves and “snakes” for my son to play with I’ll be happy. I could probably put buttons on the one above and convince son it’s dinosaur, LOL.
