Home Schooling A Toddler with ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy

This post was originally published on 6/16/2013.

Education is so important to me. I believe that in order to help our children be self-sufficient, they need a solid foundation which in my opinion is education. I have been home schooling SweetPea for a few months now. I looked into a two year old preschool for her, but with money being tight, I didn't feel that was a viable option. I was recently asked to try an Early Learning Academy app with my daughter. I feel it is more budget friendly option for the parent who wants to help further their child's education.

I have seen their commercials on PBS and Disney Junior, so I was always curious, but for some reason I never looked in it. ABCmouse.com is perfect for when the kids are out of school this summer to keep their minds at work while having fun, it's perfect for the child that needs a little help, it's a great tool for home schooling moms, and it's perfect for us because they have lessons specifically designed for toddlers.

Potty Training Preparedness 101

Potty Training. I said once the new year hit, we were going to buckle down and get it done. But how do you teach an unwilling student? Seriously. I am researching and trying every trick in the book. In all my searching, the number one tip is to be prepared! Be prepared that they'll have accidents, be prepared to clean up, and be prepared to reward as well. So I have compiled a list of products that make potty training easier and help make you more prepared.

P90X's Island Pork Tenderloin Recipe

I have been trying to gradually lose weight. Really we are trying to get back into a healthy lifestyle. We ate WAY TOO much over the holidays and it just wasn't good for our health at all. I have started doing Beachbody's P90X again but this time I have changed it up so I can slowly get into it and not overwhelm myself. I am trying to start with our diet and first. I have been working out, but I am starting slow because I didn't realize how weak I was. Eating healthy can be very yummy. We actually enjoy eating foods that are better for us, but the unhealthy foods tend to be so much more convenient, unless you meal plan - which we have started doing again. Meal planning can also be cheaper on your wallet. Here's a recipe that is healthy, yummy, and pretty easy to make.
