Welcome! My new weekly segment called Toddler Tuesdays!

I spend a lot of time with toddlers! My son is nearly 3, and I work at a foreign language center for kids, so I’m around 3-5 year olds all day!

I really don’t think I have an artistic bone in my body, I’m good with desktop publishing and whatnot, but I couldn’t even draw a decent stick figure to save my life!

My son, on the other hand has inherited (through DH obviously) a glorious artistic ability! He loves doodling, coloring, painting and taking pictures!

(the one thing he got from me! oh, and yes my 2 year old is a budding photographer!)

Seeing his art gives me so much joy! And it’s such an interesting perspective of his view of the world.

I love writing, as a kid my parents taught me that writing, drawing and all the arts are a way for your inner-self to present itself in a tangible way.

So, here’s my ode to my “Super Toddler” and to all of them! I hope you’ll add “Toddler Tuesdays” to your blog someday!

This is my first week, so I thought I’d start off by posting a picture he took recently. by "BooBoo"™...

This picture is of my hubby and I on Thanksgiving this year. As you can see, I saw Benjamin out of the corner of my eye!

I love candid photos, and especially this one! “Mommy & Daddy”

16 years from now when he’s 18 he’ll look at is and say:

“Oh my gosh you look so young mom!” (haha) 😉

Decorating our tree!

He got the shot!*

That is the question! I wasn’t raised in a family that did big things for Christmas. My mom isn’t now, and never was a big fan of the commercialism that takes over the Holiday season.

I have always agreed with my mom’s way of thinking, and especially now that I’m a parent I just hate commercials in general! Since when do we all need so much “stuff”?

Everything about the Winter season brings people together and in today’s unstable economy, that’s is happening a lot more in general!

If these trouble times have done anything, they’ve made people connect! We are helping each other now, volunteering, learning to live with less stuff and dealing with our lives (and each other) in  whole new way!

But why has it taken so much suffering for us to behave humanely to our fellow-men?! (and moms!)

With ALL that said… I wanted our family to decorate the tree together this year! In the true spirit of togetherness and love that the Holidays should embody!

What did I get?

ME, decorating the tree while my husband watched football and my son ran around with the tinsel making a mess!

(It wasn’t exactly what I’d envisioned.)

I will give him credit for this; he did snap this fabulous photo of Benjamin and I during the 15 seconds he helped me put an ornament on the tree (before running off to be the ”super toddler’ that he is).

He got the shot!


Happy Holidays!
