I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
On Open Letter to the Keyboard Warrior Sanctimommies. After reading comments on a random parenting article on Facebook this week, coming across this Keyboard Warrior post really resonated with me. I’m floored by the way grown adults interact with each other. I don’t care if it is online. There are actual people on the other end of whatever is being typed. There is no way we would let our kids speak to each other the way moms (or just people in general) do to one another online. No way.
2) What blog post should you check out?
Planet Simon is a fun, creative blog to follow. It’s full of all things fantasy, sci-fi, and science. For example, this post Creating my Own Universe where Simon walks us through turning a drawing of a spaceship into digital art. How flipping cool is that? Check it out.
**I had a Meet and Greet recently where I asked bloggers to share their favorite posts from 2017. I’m going to a highlight a post a week from the links left. If you would like to leave a link and have a piece highlighted on a Week in Review post, click here and leave it in the comments.**
3) What’s been going on this week?
It’s been a busy week. Work has been busy, and daylight savings is the devil. That pretty much sums it up.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
I don’t know yet. Spring break is starting, and I have lots of stuff I would love to do with the kids. Of course though, we will be gauging my pregnancy energy and playing it by ear. Are you doing anything for spring break? Also, can we do a nationwide implementation where grownups get a spring break too?
5) Did you miss this post?
I HATE getting my oil changed. I feel like they are trying to take advantage of me. Anyone else experience this or feel this way?
6) What did my kids create?
In between some cold weather, we have had some pretty weather too. So during a good weather window I cleared off the back porch, put a bunch of different paint colors in coffee filters, and let the kids have free reign. There was no guidance or direction. They just got to do whatever they could come up with.
If it’s not his idea, my 5-year-old son usually loses interest in any arts and crafts project within minutes of starting. He spent an entire hour quietly and thoughtfully making piece after piece.
My 3 year daughter was VERY proud of her splatter paint experiment.
She also painted the bottom of one of her feet pink and the other purple. Then she stomped on the paper until she created this, which I think turned out beautifully.
I am impressed and so proud with what they created. In fact, any time I’ve needed a pick-me-up this week, I’ve pulled up these pictures to look at. They just make so happy.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
