Our Monkey

Every parent loves to talk about their kid. I’m no different so here’s a bit about my mini me. She’s is very much a tiny version of myself. At 4 months old we were told by her pediatrician that she would need to go to a cranial surgeon to see if she had craniosynostosis; which is the plates in the skill fusing together soon than they should. When your baby is 4 months old you don’t want to hear “she’d have her head cracked open.” I feel like the pediatrician could have worded it differently. After getting X-rays and seeing the surgeon for 5 months he decided that our daughter was just small and on her own growth chart. He told us she would just be like me short and small.


We realized early on that even though she was a late talker our monkey was very bright. By 2 she was only saying 33 words but knew 0-10, upper, lowercase letters and some letter sounds, dark and light colors as well as shapes. She even knew odd shapes like trapezoid and rhombus. Body parts, animals and their sounds she knew them all. It was incredible. Mostly everything she knew was from watching BabyFirstTV and playing educational apps on iPad. A month before turning 3 she started reading. Just all around a very brilliant child. 


I love that I am able to stay home with her all day playing, bonding and making a ton of memories. My favorite memory is I was putting her to bed one night and she told me “I love you” for the first time. Our monkey has come so far in her little life and I can’t wait to see how far she goes. Artist, singer, dancer, engineer; she’ll have no limits!


I’m teaming up with Timberdoodle’s blog hop so be sure to check out the other kiddos behind the blogs. Each child is unique and one of a kind.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…

Daily Schedule: Toddler
