I am starting to stress about the car ride to Michigan. Almost 2 whole days with a child stuck in his car seat. For the record, my parents took one and a half days, but with a 16-month-old and a 28-week-pregnant momma, I am anticipating many more stops. Sounds like a nice, relaxing trip for my hubby, don't you think? :)
We are stocking my husband's ipod with childrens' music (yay for being a elementary music teacher!), purchasing a personal dvd player for the meltdown times, and packing lots of fine motor toys and activities. That goes for me too...I'll probably end up doing only half of the projects I am packing for myself. Anyway, I made this I-Spy bag for Timothy tonight:
Lots of different little things to find in a storm of rice. I have seen a lot of these online lately, but just this morning I found this post and she answered a lot of my questions. The tissue paper trick was a lifesaver! My sister-in-law is also hosting a toddler busy bag swap and this is going to be part of my contribution. I made this one up quick to test it out on our trip. We'll see how it survives being thrown in the van. :)
No gardening today...my little sweet pea didn't take an afternoon nap (after last week taking several 3 hour naps, I don't understand), but hopefully tomorrow I will get the rest of my cool weather crops in the ground. I am also hoping to pull together a few more activities for Timothy. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
