Playful Learning Spaces
I'm all gung-ho trying to get the house in perfect order. I'm so fed up with it never being clean all the way and never being able to find anything. It has come a long, long way since Johnny was born but I'd like to get the hang of it before he starts 'school' (it took me 10 years to get this far, so I am not jumping the gun here).
Now that we will be having a regular art group I am trying to find ways to incorporate it into the house as well, so it's not just a coffee table in the kitchen. I suppose I'll get into that more once the course starts.
I am pretty happy with the toy system and I've been pretty diligent about going through them every few months to weed out what isn't played with or is just junk after awhile. It helps that we are not overloaded AT ALL by toys. J is not deprived but we do keep it to a minimum as much as possible.
My mom bought him a learning tower for Christmas! He lovesloves it, which is no surprise, he's been interested in what's going on above his head since day one.
I lovelove him by the way. He'll be 15 months in 3 days. That seems really young but to me it seems like he's been around forever. We have conversations and adventures and he is my little sidekick. I think being a parent is even better than I expected. :)
