Next up is Tummygize. A blend of Spearmint, Peppermint, Tangerine, Fennel, Anise, Ginger, and Cardamom. Allll the digestive support in this little bottle of magic for your kiddos.
We rub this in a circular motion around the belly button to promote healthy digestion. Too much food for too little tummies? Tummygize is prediluted and ready to go.
This week felt like this.
Me climbing straight up...never really finding my footing and just hanging on for dear life.
I had forgotten just how intense and energy intensive homeschooling a younger kiddo is.
It's a FULL TIME 28 hour a day job y'all.
Especially this time around with just a "singleton".
I have now homeschooled a sibling set that are 22 months apart in age and this guy now. 100% positive that homeschooling one child is more intense than multiple.
But! The good news (cause there is always good news)...I have been making new friends right along with him.
Every single day for the last two weeks has been spent with some pretty amazing new friends all over RVA.
So thankful for #rvahomeschool community!
We are going to have a blast this year.
He has already declared his love of it but he may change his mind on Tuesday when I start him on his more stringent curriculum schedule 😂😜
Granted I am all about experiential learning so...ya he will still be in heaven.
P.S. He isn't as high as he looks. He's like 6" from the rubber floor 😂
Well, plans changed yesterday and we didn't get to any of the #totschool stuff I had planned for our first day of geekling + mom time since the babies' arrival. BUT we had a fun day visiting the library, reading books, doing puzzles, playing with a friend at an indoor playground, walking to our neighborhood playground, and just filling our day with busy, brain-engaging fun. It's good for me to remember you don't always need to follow a plan or tick to-dos off a list. 🤓👍
Игра мемо может быть не только зрительной, но и сенсорной)
Вот такую коробочку (как видите на супер быструю руку😂) мы смастерили для деток с проблемами зрения. ((некоторое время волонтерили в детском инклюзивном лагере, и вчера устроили для них "Пиратский квест". Обязательно запостим весь квест на днях))
Так вот🙃 В отсеках - морские обитатели, коробка находилась в неподвижном состоянии, задание - ощупать и запомнить расположение каждого! Крошки 4-х лет, с отсутствием зрения, с заданием сплавились молниеносно!!! Конечно, такие космические детки исследуют мир через прикосновения, но почему бы всем не сделать тоже самое?! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻Предложите сыграть своему котику с закрытыми глазами, начните с 2х предметов и отсеков. ☝️☝️☝️Загрузить ребёнка сенсорно это: ✔️ ориентация в пространстве ✔️ новый сенсорный, тактильный опыт ✔️ развитие ещё одного канала информации, которому зрячие люди уделяют мало внимания. А его развитие делает ребёнка более уверенным! Ведь наша кожа это 10% веса нашего тела! Нельзя ее игнорировать. Просто представьте насколько уверенней малыш будет чувствовать себя в определённых условиях (отключили свет, а мама в другой комнате; проснулся ночью и наощупь бежит к родителям) - ну и самое главное - игра с закрытыми глазами научит толерантности и эмпатии к людям, у которых зрительный канал не работает! Расскажите своему малышу - что это и как такие детки изучают мир?! В инклюзивном лагере, где мы провели несколько недель, незрячие девочки здоровались, ощупывая нас! И это была любовь с первого прикосновения❤️❤️❤️ #printypram#letthemplay#instababy#instamama#instakids#kids#baby#kidsplay#kidfun#funwithkids#earlylearning#homeschool#инстамама#инстадети#раннееразвитие#игра#развитиедетей#развивашки#домасмамой#чемзанятьребенка#длямалышей#занятиясдетьми#mommy#чемзанятьребенка#мамаидочка#мамаисын#мамадоча#мамасына#мамасына#learningthroughplay#мамавдекрете

I don't know about you but part of Saturday is always Daddy time in our house, at least for Little Wiki anyway. This usually means that Mini Wiki and I get to have a bit of a bonding in Pjs morning. But Little Wiki literally loves his daddy time. It's their time to go to @littlekickersmk, where he likes to show off to daddy his skills at the warm up dribble practice and striking exercises, then they have something to eat together afterwards (usually something mummy wouldn't approve of) and he gets to ride in the front seat of daddy's car in his booster chair. (Daddy's car is an IQ so the back seat and front seats are basically the same thing 😂). Does this sound familiar? What does your Saturday look like?? #wikiplacesforkids#lovemyson
I can't resist all the colourful toys and books whenever I am at a children's store or bookstore!! I am going to get these magnetic letters even though I already have tons. (I'll find use for them later 😂😂)
Ice cream at the Cathedral earlier. S is able to sniff out ice cream freezers and remembers the location of them for months at a time. Today on the way home from Nana's we walked through the Close and as we got to the Cathedral she announced that she was a little thirsty... the minute we entered the cafe she went and stood next to the ice cream cabinet, with a pleading look on her face!
Have we mentioned how helpful the clip on our Chookies keychain is? Even if you don't get a Chookies, save yourself and get one of those giant carabiner hiking clips for your keys so you're not rummaging around for DAYS. Just sayin ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Summer's coming to an end. The weather this August has been amazing - cool, bugless nights - perfect for playing outside. My kids go back to school on Wednesday and I'm so ready for a little more structure to my days. It's been an amazing summer (yet totally unproductive), and I am ready to get back to work! How about you?!.
What could be cuter than a babe covered in dolphins🐬🐬🐬
Lots of my 0-3 sets are Ready to Ship, making them perfect for last minute baby shower gifts.

I have been quiet 🤐on here for the last couple of days because I have been looking 👀 after Bear while we waited for this gorgeous 😍boy 👶 to arrive. How do you parents manage? 🤔I'm exhausted 😴and I've only had Bear 3 nights!
Welcome to the world 🌎 little one. The world 🌎 may not be a perfect place but you are a ray of sunshine ☀️ that brightens the darkest day. A brother 👬 for Bear and a second grandson for me 🙂😘
So thankful that my son has made such amazing, kind, sweet little friends since we moved only a few months ago. And so thankful for each of their amazing Mummas who inspire me and support me everyday ❤️ They say it takes a village to raise a child and I'm so thankful I've found mine 🙌🏼✌🏼🌿 #veganmummas#vegankids#raisingcompassionatekids
Summer holidays are awesome, but they're also a time when universally all parents of school age children scratch their heads and wonder "how on earth do I keep my kids busy and myself sane"?
Finding engaging, stimulating and educational activities is *hard* (who has time to spend all day on Pinterest?!) and resorting to screens fills you with guilt. If this sounds like you, why not try out one of trunks? Crafted with curious kids and busy parents in mind, they're THE go-to on rainy days, weekends and summer hols. ✌🏼
