So now that I officially have a tot, hehehe she says tounge in cheek as he isn't walking and is only just barely 12 months old, but he scrapes in and what the heck you're never too young for a bit of "Tot School".
Now before I hear anyone cringing and commenting on 'schooling' my tot, you can rest assured that this is really just a play on words and is a fun way for me to share some of what C1 gets up to in his week. At this stage none (well next to none anyway) of our Tot School is planned, his Tot School is all 'life school' in general. He is such a busy little beaver and learns so much each and every day.
It is also a great way to see what other tots are getting up to by clicking the link at the end of each of my Tot School posts it will take you over to Carissa's blog, where Tot School is hosted. Here you will find links to blogs aplenty with their very own versions of Tot School.
My Tot School posts will only ever be able to show a small fraction of what C1 achieves in a week. If I photographed everything I'd always be seeing him through my camera lense and not really enjoying being with him and my batteries would always be running flat and I'd be spending every night on this computer just editing the images to share with you all!!! So whilst I try take lots of pictures they will only ever be a snippet of what he has been doing over that past week.
So in saying all of that, here is my very first Tot School post.
His current focus is anything that he can put inside another thing so when he found one of sisters play rings and a pencil on the floor he was captivated for well over 15 minutes. I am totally amazed at his attention span. It seems that when he is hard at 'work' nothing can take his attention away.
He turned the pencil every which way to get the ring on the end and was a proud as punch each and every time he achieved what he set out to.
Our home school network had an art gallery workshop and in the workshop room they have an area filled with bean bags. C1 was happy there for nearly an hour, whilst the big kids created. He hid, played, rolled, jumped on and fell off bean bag after bean bag.
And what a great way to celebrate our first Tot School by celebrating his 1st Birthday. We had a big bash this time around, lots of family and friends. Clowns, Ponies and of course the cake and gifts.
