Bird Colors - Mother Goose Time

Most of the time when I write about Mother Goose Time I tell about the activities we do during the course of a day, or even a week.  Today, while we did quite a few activities, Bird Colors really stood out.

We were talking about what colors birds can be, and then we got out all these colored birds.  I turned them over, then Little Guy picked one out and "tweeted" the name of the color.  Then he "flew" around the room finding things that were the same color. 

In this color collage you can really tell if we are in a school or homeschoolers LOL.  The first color he drew was brown.  I loved that he wanted to put it on the picture of Michael and I, although it was up a little high so I had to help him.  Our furniture as well as a bookshelf are brown, but this was what he noticed first. 

The Mother Goose Time box served as the colors for both yellow AND white.  Books were easy targets.  My pink (decade old) purse was easy to see since I leave it on the floor all the time like a normal person.  Purple was the hardest.  He tried to put it on a pink shirt (he sometimes get pink and purple, as well as black and brown, confused), but I asked him that was purple and he said "No, pink!"

Eventually he found the diaper box, which adds a lot of class and professionalism to my color collage. 

When he was done matching all the colors I had him go find them all.  This was a super fun activity and he really enjoyed it.  He already knows his colors and found it pretty easy, but he got some reinforcement on the subject, and got to fly around like a bird.

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. 

- 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…

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…
