Practical life, cleaning up our popcorn snack.

I got this marble track at Goodwill a long time ago.  He loves it!  It has a permanent spot on the kitchen table.  He's allowed to play with it during meals; it seems to satisfy his need to move and keep him at the table longer.

He's mesmerized.

I brought the rocking horse down from the attic and Colt learned to ride.  Giddy up boy!

Kent got sick during our two Dd weeks.  I can still wrap him on my back pretty comfortably.  This is a gauze wrap from Babyette on Etsy.

We labeled the people that start with Dd on our family photo wall.

I am very happy with our choice of Sonlight so far.  "School" is easy when it means cuddling in the chair with my boys all day and reading great books.

"Caps For Sale" is one of Kent's favorites so far.

    Babyette wraps are the best – my three-year-old also likes to ride in one. 🙂
    I really love the idea of a marble track on the dining table. It’s so hard for the little ones to sit still while they chew, it seems…. We’ve come up with series of clapping games to do when he starts fidgeting – either hubby or I starts clapping, and J follows along until his next bite. 🙂

      Ha, yes, I’m so glad you shared about wearing J! I don’t think I would have tried. I think that was before I figured out the double hammock wrap, too, which made a huge difference in comfort. (At least I think that’s what it’s called, the way I do it now.)
      The marble track definitely works. He stays at the table a lot longer now and it has helped with the constant complaints of “I’m hungry”. Of course he’s hungry when he only eats 2 bites then runs off. 😉
