Tot School

RockerTot is currently 25 months old.

This week was chaos, but we did manage to get some photos in-between the chaotic moments. Please forgive me if this post doesn't make sense. RockerDad had a violent reaction to something and we spent the night at the ER.

I have added something new this week. If you are needing to see what we were doing at different ages, you can now jump to those posts via the left sidebar. Simply click on whatever month you'd like to see.

I think that's all for now. I hope you enjoy our weekly recap.

aka ScholarTot

He enjoyed playing with his new "pegboard" from the Dollar Tree. It's just one of the peg games where you jump the pegs on the triangular board in an attempt to leave only one peg (like they have at Cracker Barrell).

He sorted erasers into our egg tray and played with the container lid.

He then decided to pour the erasers from one container to the other.

He worked many puzzles this week. His lowercase alphabet crepe puzzle was his favorite (Dollar Tree).

(I must've washed these jammies in-between these sets of photos. He didn't do all of the above and below things on the same day.)

He is still crazy about his geoboard. His favorite shape this week was the rectangle.

I snapped a photo of him showing me how many white parallelograms he had made. (White seems to be his current favorite color.)

aka ApprenticeTot

He learned that washing garden mud out of your shoes at the outside faucet is wet... and fun.

aka NatureTot

We saw bearded dragons at the pet store.

RockerTot loves to walk through Mamoo's garden.

He's been learning how to pick beans. Mamoo is a great teacher!

He was very protective of his cucumbers.

He loves to study the creepy-crawly critters.

Just Plain RockerTot

He checked out what Thomas the Tank Engine was up to on his Viewmaster.

Every time we go to this particular mega-store, RockerTot needs to see "Steve's Big Truck" (it is similar to my brother, Steve's truck). This Power Wheels truck is over $350!! Last night, we saw someone offer the manager $125 for the display model and they accepted it. We didn't even know that was an option. Oh well, I'd rather wait until he is more proficient on his tricycle for him to have an "automatic" vehicle... if ever.

... goofing around on Mamoo's porch...

He enjoyed being high atop the swingset, watching the grown-ups work in the garden.

I snapped this photo of him using his new (to him) easel. (It was a $5 Goodwill find.)

We brought back out his Dinosaur Land book and pop-up playset. We had a blast reading the book and acting it out.

RockerTot, RockerDad and I all went to a real soda fountain (still in a drug store) in a neighboring town. This was RockerTot's first time, and boy did he enjoy his sundae!

  1. what a great week! how did you add the tot school by ages to the side bar? that's an awesome idea!!!

  2. I'll have to look for one of those peg boards at Dollar Tree. I love those.

    My kids beg and plead for the battery operated cars that all of their friends seem to have (one friend has three of them all for himself!) but we have always been opposed to them. Maybe if the kids were really good at riding bicycles, but even then I don't know.

  3. You're writing that book on pre-school education right? You need to.

  4. I just found your blog and wanted to say how much I love all the things you do with your son. My daughter is a month younger than he is, and I'm excited to try some new activities with her.

    Love it (AND love the Dollar Tree! Must find that peg board!). :)
