*PET PEEVE ALERT*
Most kiddos do not know their parent’s phone number!
Now, I know this might get under someone’s skin, but for goodness sake. What would your child do if they ever ,heaven forbid, got lost somewhere and they don’t have a cell phone on them.
If they can not call you at the push of a button, would they even know what number to tell someone to call?
That’s why I am working on our phone numbers with my daughter because I don’t ever want her to feel helpless if she does end up needing to call us for any reason.
But how can I do this with my child at home?
Easy, there are phone number practice mats out there that have come in handy for us.
It is a favorite of my daughter’s and she loves practicing finding the different numbers.
Now, I want to hear from you...

I have been told that way too many times to count in my life, mostly recently. But you know what...It doesn’t bother me.
When you meet me for the first time, you might think that I am quiet and reserved. That is true because I am always super cautious when meeting new people because I have been burned too many times in the past. So, I like to assess everyone before really deciding if this is someone I can:
2. Be myself around
Once, I get to trust and know you, I show my true side. My friends can definitly say this is true. Some of my work friends have said to me that they never knew I would be the way I am. Only a few have gotten to see that side of me. 😂
So, the first time I got called bossy it really hit hard. I don’t think of myself as bossy except towards my hubby. 😂
Every time you look up bossiness, you see words like aggressive, bulldozer, and overtakers. What!!! That is totally not how I would describe myself.
I’m happy to say that now when I get called “bossy”. I say thank you and move on, leaving the person who said dazed and confused.😂
Now, I have to remind myself of this quote as I am raising my own strong girl leader, not to let anyone call her bossy. ... See MoreSee Less

“My kid doesn’t need help in gross motor!”
I disagree and this is why:
-Gross motor is more than just running and kicking.
-Gross motor involves the development of all the muscles in the arms, legs, and torso.
-Gross motor requires multiple different activities at various levels of difficulty.
“Okay, so how can I help my child grow their gross motor skills?”
Well, that’s easy. I cover all of that in my Tiny Tikes Learning™️ Boxes! But in the meantime, you can follow me on Facebook or on my blog to find out more!

“How do you get your child to do all those activities?”
It’s a question I get asked quite often.
The truth is my secret.
Although it really isn’t a secret. It is something that I believe in wholeheartedly.

3 year old perspective
Sometimes Aria comes up with zinger that make me laugh until I cry.
Other times she warms my heart with her thoughts.
Her latest heart warming moment is none other than her little box of treasures.
This little box was nothing special. It had just some odds and ends, not exactly what I expected to be in her treasure box.
But what it did was make me even more humble. It made me think that if all we had left was what we had in our treasure box, how differently we would spend out time.
What would be in your treasure box?
