    Five Years Old!

    Little man –

    Five years old. I can’t believe it.

    Last year’s interest in superheroes was fleeting. We are now knee-deep into the worlds of Pokémon and Minecraft. That’s what the big kids like, after all.

    You are a great artist and storyteller. (You obviously get this skill from your father.) You’ve excelled at swim lessons this summer. In May, you didn’t even want to put your face underwater. Now, you love to wear your goggles to practice swimming in the bathtub…lol

    You have one more year of Pre-K starting this week. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store!

    Love you lots and lots!

    • What do you want to be when you grow up?:
    • A policeman, a fireman, and a construction guy. But not an ambulance guy, because they have to shock people, and that’s not nice!

    Life Lately – Mom of Two Boys

    So, it’s been 6 months since I blogged… That seems to be what happens when I have a big life event. It’s good to be back!

    In case you don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I had a baby boy in December!

    1464672962162

    It’s been quite an adjustment to our new normal as a family of four. Little Brother is a good baby, though. Much easier than my first, but I don’t know if that’s his disposition or the fact that I’ve done this before.

    Big Brother is handling the changes very well. He is in his second semester of Pre-K 4, and loves school, especially art class. I’ve already enrolled him in Pre-K 5 for next fall. (He technically could start Kindergarten, but with a late August birthday – one week before the Sept 1st cutoff, I decided to keep him in Pre-K one more year.) I’m also starting to make summer plans for him, including an art camp and maybe swim lessons.

    Several posts are in the works, including a long awaited 4 year birthday interview, and baby’s 1 month and 2 month updates, so keep an eye out for those!

    Happy 4th Birthday!

    Little man –

    How are you four years old already?! Time is just flying by! Three was a good year overall, but “threenager” is a very accurate term! lol Things steadily improved as you got closer to four, though.

    You’re really into superheroes now (Transformers, Iron Man, Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, etc.), but you still like dinosaurs, too. You love to tell stories, and attempt to sing the theme songs to your favorite shows. You prefer to be outside (especially swimming, which you’re much more confident with this year than last). Everyday you ask me if we’re going to school, so I guess that means you’re looking forward to starting Pre-K in a couple of weeks. lol

    I can’t wait to see you become a big brother, and teach your little brother everything that you know!

    Love you lots and lots!

    A Few Changes for the Upcoming School Year

    As you may remember, last year I homeschooled DS for preschool.  Overall, it was a positive experience.  By May, however, we were both burnt out and just let a lot of things slide.  We have been doing some review this summer of basic concepts, like letters and numbers, but we have not been terribly consistent.

    Rather than homeschooling DS this year, DH and I decided to enroll him in a 2 day/week Pre-K program.  With the new baby coming, I’m just not sure I can devote a lot of time to a curriculum, so I think this is the best option for all of us at this point.

    I’m still very interested in homeschooling in the future, if that’s where our journey takes us.  And maybe we’ll still throw in some stuff from ABC Jesus Loves Me on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  🙂

    3 Year Old Birthday Interview

    ** Affiliate links ahead! Click and support PGM! Thanks!

    In case you missed my previous post, I have a “threenager”! I decided now that he’s old enough to (more or less) answer me when I ask questions, that it would be fun to do an interview with him every year to see how his likes change as he grows. 🙂

    I borrowed these questions from A Beautiful Ruckus. After browsing Pinterest for an hour, hers were my favorite and, in my opinion, most able to grow with a child through the years. A couple of pins I found asked things like, “What do you take to bed with you every night?” and “What do you think about when you go to sleep?” Ummm…I will NOT ask my son that at 16. lol

    His answers are in bold, my comments are in parentheses/italics.

    • How old are you?: Triangle! (A triangle has three sides…so…that kind of counts?)
    • What makes you happy?: Cars do
    • What is your favorite animal?: Crocodile, see like this “chomp chomp”
    • What is your favorite color?: Green (He was looking at something green, so we’ll just go with it.)
    • What is your favorite thing to eat?: Orange Strawberries (He does love strawberries.)
    • What is your least favorite thing to eat?: Broccomoni (Broccoli)
    • What is your favorite thing to do?: Play cars 
    • What is your favorite TV show?: Ankylosaurus (His favorite dinosaur on Dinosaur Train. I thought he would say that for favorite animal, too.)
    • What is your favorite movie?: (He doesn’t have the patience to sit through an entire movie!)
    • What are you really good at?: Race cars
    • What is your favorite song?: EIEIO (Old MacDonald)
    • What do you and Mom do together?: You wanna color with my paper.  (We were coloring at the time.)
    • What do you and Dad do together?: First he wants to take the trash out with me.  (Daddy was going to take the trash out, and he wanted to help.)
    • What is your favorite book?: Dogs dinosaur skeleton (See Me Run by Paul Meisel. Dogs dig up a dinosaur skeleton that chases them. It’s a really cute story!)
    • What do you want to be when you grow up?: *stares blankly* (I reword the question “What do you want to be when you’re big like Daddy?”)  Littler (of course!)

    I Have a “Threenager”!

    Little man –

    We survived the “terrible twos”! It’s been a tough year with lots of big changes for you, but overall you’ve been an awesome kid! You’ve really gotten the hang of potty training within the last couple of weeks (no accidents, yay!), which is a HUGE milestone! I’m so proud of you!

    You are “fast and fearless”, just like your shirt says in the picture below. 100% all boy – you love to get messy and are into EVERYTHING! And people wonder why I only have one child…lol

    We’ve decided not to put you in preschool this year, but you and I will be working at home on letters, numbers, etc. so you will be ready for Pre-K next fall. There will be plenty of opportunities for socialization, though! Swim lessons, storytime at the library, and you start gymnastics classes next week. 🙂

    I’m a little nervous about this “threenager” stage, but I’m excited to see what the next year has in store for you!

    Love you lots and lots!
