Today I wanted to get some exercise in so we did yoga. It gives the school age kids some exercise. Also I have a diabetic and it helps keep her blood sugar under control.
I have been working on getting my 4 month old to sleep through the night and am having some luck. I have been spoon feeding him cereal at night with some applesauce so he doesn’t get constipated. I give him around 2 oz of cereal and 2 oz fruit. Then I give him a bath and let him play till he gets sleepy and read him a book. When he goes down he only wakes up one time in the night. About 4:30 every morning like clock work. So he was playing but I tried keeping his light off and just picking him up and not saying anything and feed him his 6 oz bottle. I burp him and then rock him right back to sleep. So far it is working without him wanting to play. Anyways…hope this helps someone else. Hopefully he will sleep all the way through the night soon with this technique.
In the daycare today we worked on pirate activities. The kids wanted to make telescopes and eye patches. I took the left over paper towel rolls and had them paint them. Then we punched holes on both sides toward the top of the roll and took yarn and tide a not so they could carry them around their neck. Next with the eye patch I cut out a circle in the roll and took construction paper and glued that on one side. We then cut holes and tide yarn and measured their head. The kids are now using their imagination to play all around the room. It took about a hour and half to complete the project. That is how we did our pirate activity.
