Rainbow Day - Mother Goose Time

Bubbles, Boats and Floats has been such a fun theme! 

Rainbow Day was really fun.  The first thing we did was talk about how rainbows were made.  First I asked who made rainbows, and he knew God did, so I was happy about that.  After we established who created rainbows, I told him that when rain and sun are out at the same time it makes a rainbow.  Mother Goose Time provided us with Rainbow Weather pieces.  We were supposed to put them in a bag and draw two, but I just laid them face down, and we flipped over two of them.  If one was rain and the other was sun we brought out the rainbow.

Then we played Rainbow Dominoes, which doesn't really need any explanation. 

Rain, Rain, Go Away was a Rhyme Time poster with a letter matching twist.  We just laid the poster on the ground, because I seem to be out of scotch tape.  After we said the rhyme a few times we got out the hands-on letters and he matched them to the letters on the poster.

Our final Rainbow Day activity was making a Rainbow Dancer.  I let Little Guy do it all by himself

(okay, like 90% by himself, I taped the strips on the back - no scotch tape, and I'm not letting a three year old use packaging tape! - and put the dots of glue on for the clouds), and it turned out pretty cute. 



He is still pretty bad with scissors...


Little Guy and I receive our Mother Goose Time curriculum free of charge in exchange for sharing our experiences!

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
