My poor neglected blog

I am on the computer all the time. So you would think I have time to blog. I don't. Usually I'm looking for homeschooling items for Reagan, or lately for her birthday party ideas.....we're having her birthday party on Friday. And....I'm slightly spazzing!

She's having a camping themed party, and I need to get the house cleaned, the yard cleaned, the goody bags put together, the fish cut out, the scavenger hunt completed....so what the heck am I doing sitting on the computer? Good question!!! Argh!!! Off to work on more birthday party stuff!!!

I love fall!!! That's pretty much all I wanted to say! I'm sure I'll be blogging away this winter, but right now it's infrequent posts and lots of things to do!

Toys For Sick Days

Do you keep a stash? No, not that thing that grows on your upper lip (if you're a man, baby!) More as in, a stash of toys. I do. I keep an upper closet filled with games, stickers, books and toys that I've picked up on clearance or that grandparents have sent Reagan or that I've gotten through some free program (a few days ago I even received a car from Trio!!)

These are PERFECT for those days when your little one is sick and feeling like the whole world is crashing down around them. I pull out one every once in a while and it really brightens Reagan's day...even if the toy only provides an hour of entertainment, I consider it well worth the cost.

Right now in my stash, I have a few books, the Trio car, some stickers, some plastic trinket style rings, some lip gloss, a few nice wooden toys for her kitchen (that might end up under the Christmas tree) and enough material to make her a twirly dress.

As the year continues to wear on, I know I'll be pulling items out and replenishing as necessary. I try to stock up on trinkets after every holiday and when a big box of goodies arrives from my mom, I always hold a few things back. I'm telling you moms, this is a GOOD practice! If you don't have a stash...stock up now! After Halloween sales are perfect to pick up cheap goodies!
