A Little of This, A Little of That

Okay, I know this is from last week, but....
How cute is he, cowboy boots and butterfly outfit!!
I could eat him up!!!

Another visit from Miss Crystal!!! 
We are the luckiest kids anywhere.  Having our very own Story Time, with a professional!!  She picks the best books, books I have never heard of or didn't even know existed.  I love her!!!

Miss Crystal always starts off her time with us giving the kids a chance to tell her all their important information.  She is so patient and kind, the kids feel very special!!

I have to say that this has got to be my new favorite book.
"What's the Magic Word?" by Kelly DiPucchio,
although "The Wide Mouthed Frog" by Keith Faulkner and Jonathan  Lambert is pretty good too!!

Working on Independent or Self Help skills with the little ones can be very timed consuming and result in a lot of mess or frustration, but in the long run it is SO worth it.  We have been working on washing our hands independently for a long time, and Scamp is finally beginning to get it.  She is careful to get ON and OFF the stool, getting the soap has become very popular, and of course the washing can't be beat.  We sing a song when we wash, that way we know we have washed long enough to get all those itty bitty germs, and Scamp wiggles her body when she is singing (or I'm singing) and now that she is doing it herself somewhat, she just wiggles and doesn't sing.  To Cute!!!  Putting the time and effort in to help the kids reach these milestones is really worth it in the end!!  Not only am I proud of them, but they are so proud of themselves.
