A day in the life...

This is my first blog entry of this new blog! I am excited to start this blog. This is dedicated to my life as a mom and all the adventures that road takes me on! I have a daughter, Evelyn, who is 18 months old and I have a son, Beckett, who is one month old.

I worked for about 5 years in early childhood education prior to having my children, and that carries over into my parenting. I believe children should be able to have many different learning experiences. I am not perfect, and I don't claim to be an expert, but I do have strong beliefs when it comes to raising children and I enjoy sharing my ideas and having lots of fun! As my blog title states...I believe every moment is a teachable moment with children. I don't always remember that, but am striving to be better!

This week I had planned to continue learning about apples as we have been, but Evelyn has been really interested in "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. So I tried to think of new ways to explore this book that would be appropriate for a toddler. Here is what I came up with:

"The Very Hungry Evelyn" Book

(I combined Monday and Tuesday since this idea didn't hit me until Monday night!)

Monday & Tuesday:
Evelyn ate through one red apple and two green pears. She made an apple out of cut up construction paper, and finger-painted the pears! The she enjoyed some tasty apple slices and pear slices :)

**Teachable [Mom]ent** for the day:
Be willing to change your plans based on what your children are interested in!
