Bath Time with Mother Goose Time

Some things are pretty mundane.  Dishes, laundry, bathtime.  But when you are three, EVERYTHING is exciting, and Mother Goose Time always provides fun stuff to build on that enthusiasm!  I was really looking forward to this week because there were a lot of easy activities to really entertain Little Guy. 

We started the week with Bath Time.  First we read Harry, the Dirty Dog.  Despite it being a very old book, and pretty cute, I don't think I have ever read it.  Little Guy really liked it and has been looking at it a lot since we read it.

Our first game was supposed to be done with sponges, but since I don't have any sponges, we used a weird clip thing from those vacuum seal bags.  First we spun the spinner, then we had to balance the "sponge" on the parts we had spun.  First he had fun balancing them on his body, then he thought it was way more fun to balance them on me.

Later we continued with the Harry the Dirty Dog theme, and Little Guy got to make his own puppet.  First he put ALL the black spots on the dog, and we fastened an eye on it.  Then I mixed some dirt and brown paint together and he made that dog really, really dirty.  He loves painting, so it was pretty fun for him.

We finished up school time with a bubble bath.  Honestly we don't do baths in our house.  Other than babies that are to little to sit up, everyone showers here.  At one point I had a 1, 2, 3, and 4 year old who all needed to be clean, and running each of them a bath was way to time consuming.  So we started with showers, which take 5 minutes at most.  So a bath is actually a bit of a treat at our house, and Little Guy stayed in there for at least an hour.  The water was not warm anymore and he was as wrinkly as a raisin, but he still wanted to stay in there.  While he was in there we worked on sorting and fine motor skills, using a spoon to scoop out the Boat Counters, and then sorting them by color.

The picture sucks, but there were only so many pictures, and I needed one with no face and no privates, so this fuzzy one is what we have. 

A quick comment:  I do clean my tub (not as often as I probably should, but it does happen) but the caulking around the edge has been stained since we moved it.

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…

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 …

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…
