If I had to pick a kunya, I would pick Umm AB. And if I had to nickname my child, I would call this dragon/dinosaur ABsaurus. Seriously, he’s one *Laughs*.
So let’s start! Our Homeschooling Activities are a challenge as they should be y’all. Amonsgt other activities like building blocks, reading letters and words, we’re working on puzzles alhamdullilah.
We’ve first mastered this puzzle below masha’Allah.
Then, in second position we mastered this one because the pieces are bigger and a bit rougher than the previous one. The tiny fingers had a tough time grabbing the knob of the pieces.
We’re currently working on this one; the smallest and the most challenging one by far because it doesn’t have carved spots built into it. The toddler has to rely on his skill of being visual.
We’ll get there insha’Allah *wink*. The first two puzzles were gifted to me by my former supervisor. She used it with her two sons and didn’t need them anymore. The last one, we received it as a gift as well alhamdullilah. See the back of one of the pieces of the third puzzle? The kiddo is a writer alright, he vandalizes everything! Lol. I guess he takes after me masha’Allah. My relatives call him L’écrivain noir even though he’s biracial…
At home, I won’t give him a pen anymore, just coloring pencils and it’s not any better because he will write on anything without exception; toys, children’s books, walls, kitchen cabinets… Subhanallah.
When we go out, I make sure I always have a pen and a paper (or a receipt) because he will come ask for these two pieces. If I don’t have them, oh boy! I’m in trouble….
Actually, as soon as the cashier hands you a receipt, he will demand the receipt and the bonus; the pen, so he can write on it. Don’t ask me why.
Anyways, what are you guys working on?
