Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.

Pixie has had fun with this nursery rhyme. We have been signing it all the time and she has even started, sorta, singing it herself.

She started her star off with crayons, but didn’t seem to be enjoying it too much, so I gave her the left over paints from the big kidlets.

She was having so much fun, I gave her the template I used to make the paper plate stars to paint another one. She had so much fun, the star tore as I picked it up. I placed it onto a paper plate to hang it up to dry. No glue required, LOL.

Note to self, don’t let her paint with poster paint on the high chair. Poster paint does not come off plastic *sigh*

Pixie is a very demanding toddler and I often find it difficult to get anything done. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only momma who sometimes struggles to keep a demanding toddler busy when you want to cook, clean or just drink a hot cup of coffee.

I came across THIS on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a bash and see if Pixie likes it.

What you need:
Small feta cheese container, cleaned and dried
Mini pompoms (I started off with 10 and now we have about 80 all together for this activity),
Scissors and patience.
Directions:
Cut a few holes into the lid of the feta container big enough to push the pompoms through.
Pop the lid back on and show said toddler how to push them through and viola!

Happy toddler content with keeping herself busy 🙂 Pixie has been at it for over an hour now 🙂 I just keep taking the pompoms out of the container for her. She is sitting on the floor next to me right now as content as can be 🙂

~Fifi is 18 months old~

I didn’t get many pics of Fifi this week Here are a few I managed to snap while the boys were busy with lessons this week.

Fifi just loves this peg board, it keeps her busy for an hour or more.

This week she discovered the chalk board and chalk. She loves drawing and this is the perfect way to distract her and as an added bonus, if she decides to draw on anything else, it just wipes off with a wet cloth (or goes in the washing machine)

~Fifi is 17 months old~

It dawned on me tonight that I don’t take pics of Fifi while we are busy with her Tot School. I definitely need to start doing that. Here are a few photos of her during the boys’ school time ♥

Blowing her nose, she just loves doing this, esp with the soft wet wipes. She has a “tissue” in her hand in most of these pics, LOL

She just loves Pikkie our little dog, she is about 12 or 13 years old already and is just fabulous with the children

I got this wonderful idea from Mama Duk at Camian Academy and thought Fifi would have the same reaction as Princess J at Live, Laugh, Love.

Fifi was a little unsure of the whipped cream at first

Then she warmed up a little
