Tot School: 27 months

Tot School

 Mr. Smiley, age 27 months

Tot Trays

Because our new school room doesn’t have a lot of storage we are using his old Tot Shelf for storage instead.   Therefore,  Mr. Smiley now finds his Tot Trays on the hearth, 3 per day.  While Mr. Smackdown and Sir Honey Velcro their way through workboxes, Mr. Smiley has been happily occupied exploring his trays.

  • exploration tub filled with rocks, marbles, army guys, plastic jewels and cork
  • paper/crayons
  • counting bears/stacking cups

Smiley really enjoyed filling and dumping his stacking cups with bears.

  • A friend and I split some counting disks from Oriental Trading.  I let Smiley’s imagination do the work . . . he decided to fill the muffin tin with the disks.  Each time he put a new disk in, I told him what color it was.

  • Another fun purchase from Oriental Trading – counting links.  His brothers had to use chop sticks to pick them up, but Smiley grabbed them by the handful and placed them in a container.

  • Instead of reading books, Mr. Smiley stacked his library books!

Life School

Mr. Smackdown started soccer at our church.  Smiley was a great assistant coach.

He took his first shower and adored the experience.  Pictured with him is Leon, his very special “night night” animal.

I know he will hate me for this one day but I just can’t resist.  Mr. Smackdown recently celebrated his 6th birthday.  As a treat, their Nana (my mom) brought all three boys a balloon. 

BUT . . . Smiley’s balloon got just out of his reach.
