Nurturing in 2013

It’s a new year and with that comes a new theme (you can read about my theme from 2012 here).

I’m the kind of person that has unrealistic expectations for myself. My to-do lists are never ending–I want to do the housekeeping, install board and batten in the half bath, and spend hours painting with my children [...]

preschool rules

I put this little “Preschool Rules” poster together for the preschool group I’m participating with this year.

(click on the image to download week 3‘s pdf)

Time for some more small talk.
