So this is not exactly what it likes like, don’t kill me for it but I wanted to share a little back to school and kid updates. The family and I are getting adjusted to the new school year, I like both of the twins teachers and although we’ve already hit some bumpy spots with my twin lady, it’s been an overall smooth transition to 1st grade.
As for on the home front the little ones’ and I have been trying some new Montessori techniques with math and science, and Elle (our baby girl) is READING!
My three year old is reading words and short sentences.
She’s been ready for almost a year now but recently she has been pushing me to teach her.
I was resistant at first, because I’m still working with her big sis on fluency and expression, and getting her to read was such a challenge.
I wanted to give Elle more time enjoying story time with just mommy reading no work. As time went on I realized I couldn’t hold her back because she was advanced and I needed to act on her enthusiasm to read while I had the chance. Not to mention the previous battles have been a bit discouraging for me, as I am not equipped to teach special needs students!
It’s been pretty simple to say the least. Mommies Pookie is a reader at the tender age of three, I hate to brag but her birthday was only 2 month ago! I guess every child really is different, and as time goes on I see it and appreciate it…well 98% of the time anyways.
Now on to the pretty stuff! I made these fried balls with cocoa powder, and freshly brewed coffee.
Because I made them in the spur of a culinary inspirational moment, I wrote nothing down.
I’m not sure I could replicate them, considering I always remember, down to the teaspoon the recipe and directions when ever I cook, I’m pretty sure I was stressed during these treats.
Anyways, here are the pretty pictures don’t be too disappointed there’s no recipe to go along with.
Just know that those bad boys helped a crazed woman in a crazed house get some zen!
Plus I plan on making them again with a few tweaks maybe even a divine chocolate dipping sauce!
