It's true-the terrible twos do start at about 18months. Kiree Kiddo has become "something else" lately. I had to put her in timeout in her crib yesterday because she wouldn't stop climbing up the loveseat and trying to pull the big picture above it down on her head. "Bee-you" has become her favorite color to wear, to eat from (bowls/plates), and to just yell out randomly. Kiree's hair is now long enough for a little teeny ponytail but of course, she always takes the hair thing out in the car.
So I made a plan a while back for dealing with having both the kids home all day every day this summer. Each week we're going to do fun activities based on a weekly theme. Last week was money week. We tried to learn about the different coins and the dollar. We also went to the credit union to set up an account for Jaide. I think it will take a while for Jaide to retain the coin name/value info. We got a little sidetracked last week with other stuff. Like getting the heatpump replaced (don't worry, it was planned) which took 7.5hrs- a little more than I thought it would. The old unit, in pieces. The new outside unit is huge!
This week is art week. Jaide loves art. No, she loves, loves, loves art. We made a paper banner mural on the wall. The bad thing about putting paper on the wall to color on is that some young children then think the ban on coloring on the actuall wall has been lifted.
Last week I bought 120 Crayola crayons for the girls. We opened them up and started using them on Monday. As of Wednesday morning, how many crayons do you suppose are broken?
