As a mom (and teacher), I strive everyday to engage, nurture, and expand the mind of my little one.
Here you will find the books, music, and activities most useful to me in my endeavors.

Reasons to Count

I am constantly looking for excuses to have my toddler COUNT. Let's see if I can think of 10 things we count on an-almost-daily basis:


  1. Animals, objects, etc. in the pages of a book

  2. Steps as we are walking up/down

  3. Bath toys as we are putting them away

  4. Crackers on her tray at snacktime

  5. Fingers and Toes, Eyes and Nose

  6. Pieces of mail as I pull it from the box

  7. Dolls we can take with us on an outing (I set a number, otherwise we'd have a whole car full!)

  8. Blocks/cups we can stack before it tumbles

  9. Cabinets (or knobs) in the kitchen while I am trying to cook

  10. And most recently, Hide-n-Seek:




Okay, I admit it. This entire post was just an excuse to share a cute video :)
