On Sunday I discovered Shannon's Tot School.
On Monday I went to Walmart and Dollar Tree for supplies.
Today we did our first activities.
For the first activitiy they had to stick pipe cleaners (or chenille stems as they seem to be called now) into the holes of the salt & pepper shaker lids. I helped Mischief with hers. She put one in and was ready to move on to the next step. The next step being to thread the pony beads onto the pipe cleaners. Both girls did great with it, though Mischief lost interest after about 6 and then just enjoyed playing with the pony beads in the little glass bowls. Drama Queen however decided to make hers look like a flower by removing some of the pipe cleaners making her able to bend the ends of the remaining four pipe cleaners into the now empty holes and thus creating a flower look.
We may do more activities this afternoon, though I had hoped those two would have lasted longer than the 15 to 20 minutes they took (including set up and clean up). The girls did have fun! If you have toddlers I recommend you check out that website. A number of the activities seem too young for DQ and maybe too old for Mischief, but I'm pretty sure they'll enjoy trying them at least once.
And maybe it will help break Mischief of calling all colors pink. . . .though she's now moved on to calling anything she likes or wants "pink-red". Little weirdo.
Oh, here's Butterfly today. She slept all day and night yesterday and has decided she has to be awake today. Like really. And I have no clue what to do with a newborn for FOUR HOURS, which is how long she's been awake for one stretch so far today.
And now she's hollering at me again. Though i don't have the answer either. . .
Oh ya, today we recieved a call from Dempsea's new owners. Apparently our local animal shelter left his old collar on which had our number and address. Anyway, they are absolutely loving him. They have three kids, oldest is a boy who is 8. And you know he's in the perfect spot because they let him sleep in their bed. I'm sure he is in HEAVEN with that. They called to find out about the scar on his back, which we can't explain as it was there when we got him also.
