As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
Dear Mother Goose Time,
Not too long ago, I was reminiscing about how far the little guy has come and of course how quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we got our very first little yellow school bus box. We were both so excited to get started.
I brought the box in, put it on the studio floor, and we opened it together. From that moment on, I knew I didn’t want to let it go. It was everything I had hoped for and so much more.
You see, I stumbled across Mother Goose Time not too long after the little guy was born. A bit sooner than we probably needed it, right? And yet, I still spent hours pouring over your website and imagining the all kinds of awesome that would eventually be preschool at home.
Fast forward a few years and guess what? The little guy and I seriously can’t wait for Mother Goose Time to get delivered each month. I’m not at all surprised, though. Are you?
What’s really crazy is how much he’s grown. When we started with this curriculum, he wasn’t quite two and was just starting to talk.
He went from about fifty to a few hundred words just in the last few months. What started as a few random phrases has turned into complete sentences and sometimes I’m seriously in awe listening to him.
A few weeks ago, we were talking about the letter A. I turned around and saw that the little guy was playing with Bananagrams, which is sort of similar to Scrabble, but without the game board.
He had a half dozen or so A tiles lined up and of course he so very proud of himself. Without a doubt, my friends. I was proud of him too.
I’m so impressed with his progress. He’s starting to count and recognize letters as well as identify colors and basic shapes. He can string small beads onto a shoe lace and he’s starting to learn how to use scissors too.
We were on our way home the other day and I was listening to the little guy talk to himself in his car seat. “One, two, three, four, five,” he said and paused for a second. I said “Six, seven…” And then I heard something I’d never heard before “Eight, nine, ten.” I seriously about fell over, y’all. I was definitely not expecting that. Lol…
I can’t thank you enough Mother Goose Time for helping us to create so many wonderful memories. It’s so awesome to see him learning! And even more so to see him loving it.
A Happy Homeschool Mama
