So how in the world do you find time for this?

So, in efforts to keep my sanity with a 1 month old and a 4 and 2 year
old, I have decided to make each day a particular "TIME." Each morning
after I place my peaceful daughter down for her first nap of the day, my
loud and crazy guys and I check out which day it is (b/c, well with a
new baby - I may not remember) and have our "TIME." Monday I decided
is cooking time, Tuesday is Art/Craft time, Wednesday is
puzzle/workbook/& ABC time thanks to Hezekiah, Thursday is Math and
Science time, and Friday is mystery day (because it is a mystery to me
at the moment........). Anyhow we have been successful in watching a
caterpillar change to a butterfly, we have counted hershey kisses and
eaten them, we have counted spoons and added them, we made very yummy
chocolate chip bars (where once I got the eggs, butter, brown sugar,
sugar, vanilla all combined - Eli threw a fit b/c he thought it was
peanut butter and he wanted, "A BITE.") We also made adorable little
bugs............I was so proud of my eldest who cut out his circles and
applied each piece of crafty supply to his little bug. So today thanks
to Hezekiah we also have ABC day............we did puzzles, and
workbooks (tracing things)............and well clever me places ABCD on
the poster I made to remind us what we do on Wednesday and when we
finished the puzzles and workbooks, the Hez man said beligerently, "WE
HAVE TO DO OUR ABC's TOO!!!" I was like, okay........do not have
anything planned for the ABC's but we can think up something quickly
huh? Anyhow, I have the leapfrog letters on the front door (magnetic)
and I go okay come over here and I made them find each letter as we sang
the alphabet and put them in order..........found out we are missing and
I and a Z.........not bad for having them for 4 years! So if anyone has
an extra I or Z, send it our way! Our time lasted an hour today! I
was certainly impressed.........I even got a shower in afterward and all
before 10:30 a.m. It is amazing what one can accomplish when one
doesn't know what one can do (from a Garfield poster I had when I was a
kid). I will post our bug pictures (sooo cute!)
