Thank you for Povi for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.

Helping young kids understand how to explain what they’re feeling can be a challenge.  Frustration, sadness, joy -those are concepts that aren’t easy to put into words, especially if they don’t know why they are feeling them.

A few weeks ago I went over to the elementary school and pre-registered Bubbles for kindergarten.  And then last week we went back for her kindergarten screening.

Fun Ways to Get Kids Excited for Kindergarten

She has been very excited about the idea of kindergarten, but when it came to actually going in for the screening, she got a case of cold feet.  Fortunately the school is less than a mile away, so we were there and in the door before she had too long to dwell on it. Continue reading »

Thank you to The Motherhood and Kimberly-Clark for partnering with me to bring you this printable cleaning chart for preschoolers.

Bubbles loves to help around the house.  She knows where we keep the duster and often just gets it and asks if she can dust.  And if she hears the dryer buzz when it’s finished, she races me there so she can help fold clothes.

How to Make Spring Cleaning Fun for the Whole Family

The past couple of weeks we’ve had a few days of beautiful weather mixed in with some rainy cold ones.  When the sun has been out, we’ve been out with it getting a jump on our spring cleaning.  As Bubbles, of course, has wanted to be involved in that, too, I looked for a way to make it easier for her to participate.
