Why is this place so hard to keep clean? It’s driving me nuts. As soon as the house is picked up, it’s a mess again. I’m trying to keep ahead of the dishes, and that’s a feat.
Lately, it’s been smooth sailing with Vera. No big issues getting dressed and leaving. She’s actually getting on my back in a Mei Tai! Sometimes, she’ll ask to go in a wrap on my back before bed. But the fact that Vera’s putting clothes on is huge. I’m going to enjoy this little reprieve while I have it.
Abby had a math lesson yesterday that taught the names and spellings of zero to ten. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go since she’s resistant to learning to read, but she got into it! Basically, I wrote all the numbers on the board with their names, and then we played hangman using those words. Hangman is a family favorite game in our house. Three letter words can be killer. Anyways, it was fun and hopefully she learned to read a few of the names.
I need to go, I lost my moment of peace. Abby’s leaning over my shoulder.
