Teaching Little Ones to Pray

Our family prays multiple times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime), but sometimes the rote prayers we say everyday are a hindrance to teaching children what prayer really is: Talking to God. 

This month the focus of Mother Goose Time's Experience God add-on pack was God Wants Me to Pray.  Each week was a different topic, ranging from prayers of praise to prayers of petition and intercession.  Pretty deep stuff for a 2-3 year old.

The story for the month was the Easter story.  Our character trait for the month was forgiveness.  Seriously, I could not be happier with the way that Mother Goose Time has perfected the art of themes.

Every month our Experience God Children's Pack comes with craft activities to do once a week.  One of our activities this month was called "Pray Every Day".  We wrote numbers on the calendar, then decorated it with stickers.  Along with our lesson, this was a reminder that we should pray every day.

I love the Experience God packs.  I don't do them as thoroughly as I should (like everything in my life at the moment... I have rather overextended myself temporarily), but my Little Guy knows the Bible stories that we learn very well.  The story cards and pictures help him remember, and by the end of the month he can explain what is happening in each one. 

As usual, Little Guy and I get this awesome curriculum free of charge in exchange for sharing our honest experiences.  All opinions are ours!

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. 

- 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

- 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…

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

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…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
