It’s been a little while since we had a Friday Freebie draw so I thought I would share a little of the Nest house while doing this weeks.
Kids do the darnedest things sometimes and having three of them, I’ve been through most of it and then some! We are fairly relaxed in the Nest house and the kids have the opportunity to do a lot of things for themselves to help with their learning and development. Studies have shown that kids who are allowed to do things for themselves learn self sufficiency a lot earlier. While they are our babies and we want to do lots for them, there has to come a time where they need to do things for themselves as well. We have areas in the house where K can get his own drink, he’s able to help himself to certain foods and we are even teaching him how to use knives. He absolutely adores sitting up at the bench and ‘helping’ me cook dinner!
Baby K (can I still call him a baby now that he his nearly 3?) decided to add a new experience to the repertoire this week – trying every single pear in the house! I’m not sure if he was trying them to see if they tasted different or if it was all about the experience of biting into each pear.
Either way, he got a LOT of pear yesterday and when I went to prepare lunches this morning, I had an interesting surprise! Let’s just say that there was some creative fruit preparation happening!
It got me thinking though, what has your little one done to surprise you lately? Cos surely, I’m not the only one who finds these surprises!
