The toddlers in my life are big into hide and seek. They are generally terrible hiders, but that doesn't stop them from squealing with glee every time someone finds them! Connor's found a few spots lately that we wouldn't have found him quickly at all had he been quieter. It cracks me up how every child I've known thinks it's a good idea to hide in the same exact place (or maybe one of three places) every time. Also, I often take my time finding them. I mean, why not enjoy a minute or two of silence right?
Speaking of games, Connor and my 16 month old daycare boy made a game out of cleaning up these little snap-together beads. Daycare boy stood next to the bucket about 6 feet away from the pile of beads. Connor would pick up a small handfull, or sometimes just 3 or 4 beads, bring them to daycare boy and put them in his hands, and daycare boy would put them in the bucket. This took them a good 5 minutes at least to pick up the pile, but they had fun and were developing their team-work skills!
We spent a few days working on Valentine pictures for the daycare kids (even the baby!) to give their parents. They are turning out really cute! Here is a picture of the baby's Valentine, I covered up his name. I'll show you the bigger kids' version in a separate post.
I've started following a few more people's boards on Pinterest, but have been more selective in which boards I'm following in order to keep my main page easier to keep up with. Specifically food boards! It's hard to look at all that yumminess when you're on a diet!
I've become slightly addicted to wintergreen life savor mints. They help me keep my mouth occupied when I'm hungry so I don't snack all day long.
I've finally started taking Zyrtec to deal with my many environmental and seasonal allergies. While I'm still often itchy, it doesn't feel as bad as it was. The main difference I've noticed, though, is how much easier it is to breath! I didn't realize what I was missing until I had open sinuses!
I'm thinking of making the Pioneer Woman's pot roast again on Sunday because it is Oh So Yummy!
