I wish I had more time scheduled with the kids. Just this week did they really feel at home and comfortable with me. I did stretch the program by adding more music and a craft. Now, I wouldn't normally do a craft with toddlers, but caved to the enormous pressure I was feeling. It was a simple gluing project to piece together a bear puppet. The stuffed animals were more successful than they have been in the past. As always, the bubbles were the favorite.
This program wore me out, or maybe it's the lingering cold. Either way I can't seem to focus critically on the toddler time series.
