Extreme Grocery Shopping (Just Add Toddlers)

(Originally posted on the Inbuggering Diaries as "The one with the second part to Grocery Shopping - Dutch Style ... Enter the Toddlers" ) Way back in 2012 I wrote about my adventures grocery shopping (If you're interested, it's here). 3 years, and 2 kids later - I...

Something Different Challenge: Day 21

  While attempting to eat with a spoon or fork is not new by itself, doing it correctly without spilling food everywhere (much to the cats' delight) is indeed a novel approach. So for day 21, we decided to work on this skill as our activity. I chose a food that 1) had...

Something Different Challenge: Day 20

Our day 20 activity served not only the purpose of trying something new, but also to clean up the cars from the previous day's painting activity. We set up a car wash, with lots of bubbles (dish soap) in an inch of water in the activity table. The Tyrant loves bubbles...

Something Different Challenge: Day 19

Oh IKEA, how I love thee. Our first visit to the recently opened store in our area yielded, among other things, a roll of art paper. Continuing to encourage the Tyrant's newfound love of art, for day 19 I taped a big piece of this paper to the floor and put several...

Something Different Challenge: Day 18

With the Tyrant's sudden interest in art, for day 18 I picked up some bath crayons and markers while doing our weekend shopping. It took a while for him to catch on, but once he did he really had a good time with this activity. However, I can't count the number of...

Something Different Challenge: Day 17

For those who don't know me, you'll soon figure out that our family are huge hockey fans. Daddy plays in adult league (beer league) as well as works with the local ECHL team and referees children's and charity games, we attend local games whenever possible (go...

Something Different Challenge: Day 16

Our day 16 activity was somewhat chosen by the Tyrant, who has suddenly taken to climbing on the dining room table and getting into his art supplies, which he has previously shown little interest in. So I decided to try something different with this than the usual...

Something Different Challenge: Day 15

Day 15, also surgery day which went fine, was absolutely beautiful and we just couldn't stand to waste 60 degree weather in January in Missouri. So we drug out the outdoor car, which the Tyrant was too little to really use when the weather was last warm enough for...

Something Different Challenge: Day 14

Our something new on day 14 is something I've been meaning to try for a while, and with surgery the next morning I wanted to keep it simple. I paired toys with a book of the same subject, in this case dinosaurs. I made a dinosaur cage from blocks while the Tyrant was...

Something Different Challenge: Day 13

Day 13 was grocery shopping day. Am I the only one who impulse buys toys at the grocery store? This was the second time in a week. Anyway, I found these great wooden blocks that came in a case with a shape sorter on top. I couldn't resist. So our challenge was two...

Something Different Challenge: Day 12

I had surgery on my dominant hand today so everything, including typing, is a painful challenge right now. However, I don't want to get too far behind on my challenge posts, so I'm going to do my best. I hope you'll all understand if I keep the posts short and to the...

Something Different Challenge: Day 11

Day 11's activity came about because of the Tyrant trying to put his toy cars into the blocks slot on his toy train, which don't fit, resulting in him getting very frustrated. Then the lightbulb came on. I have boxes, I can make him a car drop box. So I took a box,...

Something Different Challenge: Day 10

It has been a busy few days around here preparing for my upcoming surgery so I'm a little behind on my daily challenge posts. And I'll probably not be able to type for a while so will likely continue to be behind. For now, I'll at least try to catch up the past few...
