The mommy guilt has also started to settle in a little more lately. I had it a ton when J was a fresh little baby, then it kind of went away. Now that he is getting older, I feel it creeping back in. I keep on thinking that I need to plan more activities for him. Then I think, "should he know this? should I be working on this with him?" And then I think that if I had a parent in my class who was stressing about these things I would tell them to relax and not stress about it. I would remind them that their child is still a baby and that it is not necessary (or developmentally appropriate) for a 16 month old to know colors, numbers, shapes, etc.
So anyways, I saw this cute little project on pinterest and I thought that Jackson would love it. Well, I was completely wrong.
He watched me tape it on the window and he was completely amazed by the tape. The color, the stickiness, the roll. He loved it. So...I gave him the tape and even tore off a few pieces for him to play with.
Wonder what he's looking for?
There it is! Tape-on the back of his leg!
I posted a long time ago about how chloe likes to pile our shoes up in her bed when we are gone. Well, yesterday, the only shoe left out in the living room was this little one...
So, so sweet.
And lastly...this morning we made waffles. And by we I mean me and Jackson. It was incredible. See for yourself.
