I'm so thankful to work and be with my daughter all day. As a nanny I care for other little ones, but Moriah joins me and plays alongside her two best friends. As Mr. S. has returned to pre-school this year and Ms. M.K. takes morning naps, I wanted to create a bit more of a structure for Moriah and I to learn together. As a preface to this and all other posts, this works well for us, in this season - by NO means do I assume it should or would work for every child and family. Please know my heart is to encourage moms who may relate, but NOT to discourage moms.

So we've enjoyed sprinkling "school" into our days over the past week and a half. Moriah REALLY likes it and feels pretty grown up about it I think. She's happy to do craft projects and is quick to memorize with the help of songs and rhymes. It's a blessing to watch her. Of course, we've still been going to our library story times, playing inside and outside, cleaning up and doing laundry, running errands, and enjoying the rest of life! We've just added this bit of structure and love it so far. I'd highly recommend it to anyone in a similar place :)
