The Matters of Motherhood Episode 1 Season 1

Show Notes

In todays podcast we talked about...

We talked about being Stary Eyed, even in the hard times. How are you taking

 

care of yourself spiritually, emotionally, and physically? How are you connecting

 

with other people to help each other?

 

 

The little moments in life on our spectrum of light and darkness can be the best

 

memories, especially in our mommy-fast life. With the expectation to be beautiful,

 

thin, educated, have a great job, social life, dinner on the table, there is always a

 

lot going on. But, mama, you are doing great! No one is perfect and the perfection

 

you see in your Facebook, Twitter, and Insta feed is only a snapshot of someone

 

else's life. Things may not look as peachy inside that bigger picture. I know it is

 

hard not to compare yourself to all those other moms out there, but

 

JUST DON'T!!!

 

You are wonderful and being the best mom you can be!

 

 

We also talked about Fit4Mom, which is one of my favorite organizations on the

 

planet!

We are currently obsessed with the wood and felt food sets! With summer right around the corner we are practicing our ice cream stacking skills with the Scoop & Serve Ice Cream Counter where your little one can make the cutest creations for pretend play and Mommy can eat them with no guilt!

 

Our other favorite pretend food is the new Prepare and Serve Pasta set because who doesn’t want to make pretend pasta while Mommy is making the real thing?

 

The pieces are so realistic that you get lost in the play, that is, until you go to take a bite!

 
 

And if you have room for dessert you can decide if you want to bake cookies or a cake with the Slice and Bake Cookie Set or the Wooden Make-a-Cake Mixer Set. Both sets will have your little one in the kitchen all ready to start learning and soon they may be bringing you more than just felt and wood food!

Coloring and Sign Language: It’s All in the Wrist!

 

Colors, Colors! My daughter tends to say that a lot these days because she LOVES to color…On EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE! She also loves signing with me and enjoys when I sign her favorite songs or parts of Frozen (That I could pretty much quote to you at this point) that she is rather fond of.

But I was thinking the other day, “What a great way to integrate sign language into our everyday life with coloring!” So I created these lovely coloring books of capital and lowercase letters and numbers along with the sign for each letter and number.

Your child will have fun coloring in all of the letters, while you show them the hand shapes for each letter! This is such an easy way to enforce the alphabet and get your little one signing at the same time!

A fun game that you can play while talking about the letter signs is to encourage your child to find something that starts with a certain letter such as doll, cat, dog, baby, etc. Show them the letter sign for that object or, for older children, have them show you the letter sign.

Example:

Children 0-2 Years

Have your child find an object such as a doll

Ask them to pick it up or point to it

Tell them what the object is, what letter it starts with, and sign that letter

Children 2+

Have your child find an object such as a doll

Ask them what letter the item starts with and to sign the letter

(the more you practice this, the easier it will be)

Have fun with this! Talk about what sound the letter makes or how many toys equal a certain number. You will be surprised how many of these concepts your little one picks up as you do these activities together.

I hope you enjoy these and if you have any other coloring book ideas or things you would like to see on the blog comment below!

Happy Coloring!
