Jennifer over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom has a super spiffy idea trying new stuff on a monthly basis. So I'm copying. Here are things I plan to try in March...
Mother Goose Time Preschool Curriculum
This looks like so much fun to me! I'm the kind of person that thinks school and worksheets are fun. I want it for Nels, especially now that he's approaching the tough 2's and with the arrival of baby Daisy he needs a little extra attention. I have a feeling big brother Guy will love this too.
Strawberry Dream Cake
I saw this cake of an episode of Cook's Country (America's Test Kitchen? They are the same, right?). I want it. My birthday is in March so I plan to make myself this cake. I'll force Guy & Nels to do some of the work.
Baby "Spa" Bathtub
Yeah, it's a bucket. I'm not bathing my baby in a "real" bucket because I don't know if people will think I'm weird for doing that. But I found one of these baby buckets at the consignment store for cheap. I hope baby Daisy will be big enough for it in March. We'll try it out.
Quarterly Co. (Joel Johnson)
Quarterly Co. has a bunch of different boxes curated by different people. I picked Joel Johnson who makes boxes inspired by the memory of his grandma. I think it sounds sweet and slow-paced. But I don't know his grandma so I might be in for a shock. His first month's box was about corn bread, as seen above. Super cute. I had a hard time picking between Joel Johnson and Felix Salmon, whose first box was focused around camping and the movie Moonrise Kingdom. Plus Felix is a finance blogger. I'm envious of anyone who knows enough about finance to make it as a writer. Plus Moonrise Kingdom was awesome.
I've heard about this show from other moms, family members, ladies at Church, the gals at the scrapbook store, everyone. I know it'll be good but I just haven't wanted to put the time into getting to like it. Look at all those characters! It's no Red Dwarf, that's for sure.
