Wow! Luke is 16-months-old today! He’s growing like a weed! We’re on week 2 of Mother’s Day Out and it’s been a real struggle. He grabs on to me, starts crying and doesn’t want to let me go. It’s just heartbreaking. I end up crying in the car every time! Hopefully, it will pass and he just has to adjust. And hopefully sooner than later! Now on to brighter subjects to keep your kiddos entertained…


So pretty much everyone during childhood had these little plastic letters that covered refrigerators. There’s always something spelled out – usually I love you or someone’s name. Well, now here’s another activity for them – fishing!


  • Magnetic Letters
  • Dowel Rod
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Metal Clip
  • Bowl
  • Magnetic Dry Erase Board


  • Tie the metal clip to a piece of string and then tie the other end of the string to the dowel rod creating a “fishing pole”
  • Place magnetic letters in wide bowl
  • Give child fishing pole and allow him/her to fish letters out of bowl
  • When a letter is “caught” place the letter on the white board and spell fun words!

    Aw sorry to hear about Luke crying. I think for some it’s just crazy seeing so many different people on a non-regular basis. I think he’s totally fine; he’s sort of like me and how I sometimes get overwhelmed with strangers lol.
