Well if you haven't noticed there hasn't been any jumping for joy posts about my potty trained child because....yup we aren't there yet. She promised us that she would be a big girl when she was 3 and that's when she would use the potty. No go. The big THREE rolled around and she decided she still wasn't a big girl. Oh well.
Due to the lack of underwear usage in our home a little goose can't go to preschool so I am trying to keep her along the preschool route at home. Right now I have three workbooks that I am in love with: Brain Quest Workbook Preschool, Sesame Street Ready Set Preschool! and Get Ready for Pre-K with PB&J. We are starting with the color section of the books to get Mad used to the concept and she loves school time. When hubby gets home from work Mad can't wait to show him her 'homework' that she did. Too cute!Since we have been doing colors for the past week or so I also incorporated some fun time with colored rice! She ended up spending 45 minutes at the kitchen with the bucket of rice before she got bored, score!I also threw together a simple color matching activity with clothes pins. We have never really worked with clothes pins before so this was new for Mad and she had a great time.
We will probably do another week of fun color activities to go along with the workbook pages before we move on and next up may be the ABC's.
