Some days you just have to scrap your lesson plan...

Ever have one of those days?


After focusing on babysitting and then potty training last week, I was excited to start some new activities with Jonathan and Grace. But, it just isn't happening today. Everything I attempted this morning was met with whining or disinterest.



For example, I had this cute Halloween-themed Montessori activity lined up for today... it only lasted a couple minutes. Grace is cutting her molars and is pretty irritable right now. Jonathan kept trying to grab my attention this morning by acting up.

So, I had to scrap the "lesson plan" today-- or at least my agenda for the day. Sometimes you just have to tune into your kids and what they need... the alphabet will still be there tomorrow. It's hard to let go sometimes, isn't it? Maybe we'll go for a walk after they wake up from naps (please sleep today!) 


So in the meantime, pray for wisdom and patience so I can figure out what exactly they do need today!

We all have those moments that we need the extra patience.

You are right. Our plans will still be there!

Have a good day!

AMEN sister! I totally get that! Perhaps you need a little field trip or "mini break" until the kiddos get back to the norm...whatever "normal" means for kiddos... ;0)
