Schooling at home best practices:
- Established wake up times and bedtimes for the girls. They set alarms for when to get up on their ipads and understand that this is a weekday requirement
- Created and printed out a weekly schedule for their schooling. This schedule incorporates the work their getting from their teachers as well as the work I'm assigning to them from our list of homeschooling resources (See here, here and here). The schedule runs from 9:30 to 4:30
- Schedule in some free time as well as time to video call with friends so relationships are maintained.
We're spending more time outside with regular bike rides and walks.
Potty training was an all-hands-on-deck affair with the girls being very enthusiastic and helpful about helping their little bro use the potty. The result is Mr.Boy is day and night pee trained. We're diaper-free. He's still not comfortable pooping in the toilet so we're still using pull-ups. I know Spice had that trouble transitioning as well and understand it's more a psychological/emotional issue than a physical one. We'll be patient in pull-ups until he's ready to make that final leap.
