But not only that, today is the FIRST day that I am only committed to 2 things. Number 1: My family. Number 2: MOPS as in coordinator. Not bad. I am ready for today. My husband actually put my on a sewing/craft hiatus for 1 year. Yes, it still means I can get my craft on, but only for me (or my family). I had been so busy working on gifts for other people that my own children don't have quilts made by their mother. I have projects started for them that I intend to finish (and show you of course!). I am super excited. I am learning to say no. And I am learning to delegate. So excited!
I finished up the last commitment last night. . . it was awesome. . . and slightly nerve racking. I had an amazing opportunity to speak at our MOPS group about literacy (something I have a huge passion for) at home with preschoolers. And by preschoolers I mean, any kid not in school . . . birth to 6 (or so). Most of the stuff I spoke about applies to school-age kids, too. I hope I didn't intimidate my fellow mom friends by all the stuff I do with Ethan. I love what I do and he loves it so much he asks for it (I'm not complaining!). I am going to try very hard to post more things for my toddler time section, because I think that doing creative activities centered around literacy is so very important for the growth and development of language, reading, and writing. If you want to see my power point presentation send me a message and I will email it to you. It's not very long at all.
