Little Artist

Lyla loves coloring. It’s one of her very favorite things to do, maybe even her most favorite. I discovered that Crayola oil pastels are the perfect coloring tool for toddlers, they show up very rich and vibrant. Lyla LOVES them! She asks for them more than anything else and she not only colors but loves to take the oil pastels out of the packaging and then line them back up in it 🙂

Wise Mommy

Every morning Lyla screams unless I hold her while I make breakfast. I don’t mind holding her… I mean, it hurts my back, but I love her and that she wants to be with me… but there are things I can’t do while holding her like when I’m dishing the scrambled eggs onto plates or buttering toast. So, I usually set her down and she cries. Which isn’t the end of the world but it’s not the best. I set her up with her preschool show on my phone for ten minutes while I cooked this morning and she was really happy! Whew!
