Cougar and I just went to the greatest thing ever! I signed us up for a Cradled in Literacy workshop, which is a little four week program put on by Spanish Fork City. It was entirely free (sounds great already, but it gets better) Basically, they took the kids and had licensed child care providers watch them (snacks and finger painting included) while the mothers/parents had a class about instilling a love of reading in children. Taught by a couple of women with big degrees and lots of experience. They gave us a binder full of ideas and tips and even a book. If You Give a Pig a Pancake. It was so cool! Then they bring the kids in with the parents and have you practice what you just talked about. I loved it! Cougar loved it. I feel all rejuvenated and ready to be that super fun mom I am in my dreams. I just can't wait for next week.
I got married to Mark Davis in January of 2004 became a mommy in May of 2005. I stay at home and raise our sweet (most of the time) son Cougar. I am patiently awaiting the arrival of our second bundle of joy. (Due in October)
I really don't have very many links to everyone else's blogs, because I don't know that many. If you'll send me an email I'll be sure to include yours!! firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a system I wholeheartedly believe in! It is slowly, but surely changing my life. I have never been a good housekeeper and am perpetually unorganized, but my kitchen and living room have been pretty much spotless for almost a month (and it's spreading to the rest of the house). Check out what she says, try it, all of it and see what happens in your home.
