Two-year old children sometimes get characterized with a not-so-positive label called the “terrible two’s”.  Yes, a child begins to exert his independence around 2 years of age, but he also becomes engaged in conversation, able to reason, and starts socializing with others.  It really is a wonderful age! Here are some activities you can do …

I don't know about you, but as a homeschooling mommy of two little girls... I get tired!  Not tired of teaching my girls or loving on them...just physically tired because I have so many things that I need to do.  Or at least I think that I need to do them. There are so many different hats that we wear and it can be exhausting! Here is a short list of just SOME of the many hats you may  wear: *wife *mother *cook *doctor *teacher *taxi driver  *house cleaner *blogger *never ending laundry folder Please feel free to add to the list:) I often think of this e-card to make me smile and chuckle a bit... Source: homeschoolchicks.com via Teaching Blog on Pinterest If we nod in agreement with the e-card, it is simply because we all feel a bit overwhelmed at times. Our plate quickly fills up and we feel exhausted!  I will admit, I am NOT a supermom!  I CAN'T do it all and I don't want to do it all!  But if you are anything like me, you tend to beat yourself up for all that you DON'T do:)   Well...I want to encourage you to listen to a fantastic interview with Erica from Confessions of a Homeschoooler!  This amazing mother and homeschooler candidly talks about how she is NOT a Supermom!  Erica's down to earth personality and honesty will allow you to walk away knowing that you don't have to do it all.  At the same time, Erica offers some fantastic tips on how to successfully manage it all! So relax, hit the play button, surf your favorite blog and be encouraged! You ARE a wonderful mom! If you would like to read more about my interview with Erica, check out the blogpost {HERE}.
