Moms, do you ever get the feeling that you have soooo many things to teach your little ones? I do! Sometimes I think there's just so much I want him to know and understand. Or like there are a lot of things that he absolutely needs to know and understand. But, I can't help but to sometimes feel like I can't get it all in him. Does this make any sense to anyone except me? I mean really, there are such things as numbers and counting, colors and shapes, reading and writing and so much more! In my home, we strongly believe and stand on the word of God in our daily lives. So, my husband and I make great efforts to instill Godly principles and values within our children. Such as faith and love and kindness and honesty and all those things the bible teaches up about. Not to mention the "basics" like, who God is and what He has created and things of that nature. However, sometimes I think "am I really getting everything he needs to know in there!?" The truth is, he really is getting it. My son is 3 yrs old and obviously doesn't have the attention span of a fully grown adult, because HE"S NOT ONE! If you try and sit a toddler down and teach him textbook style for hours at a time, it's not going to do anything good for you or him! lol, That approach will ultimately frustrate you and your little one and nothing good will be absorbed in their little brains. I've learned that the best way to teach my son and even my other smaller ones is to simply show them. They learn SO MUCH by what they see and hear from their father and I. It's truly amazing sometimes! Often, I like to make things into songs. My children love and respond well to music. Anything in music form not only grasps their attention, but it also helps them greatly in memorizing things. It's important for parents to watch and learn how their children learn best. It will take away some of the frustration of teaching them what they need to know when it's better understood how they learn best. Also, each of your children are individuals. So that means, what may work for one, may not work well for another. Be persistent and keep teaching and pouring into your own children. Don't worry so much about if they're getting it or even how fast or slow they seem to be getting it. The important thing is, they're getting it! You're the most important person in your childrens growth and development. Keep doing what you do mom, it matters. A Lot!
I'm currently working on some children learning songs to share with YOU! These songs have helped my children learn and have fun at the same time! Check back for links. Happy learning moms :-)

**This is NOT a faith based music class** Kids LOVE music!! Music brings joy, peace, comfort, entertainment, learning and so much more to people of ALL AGES! This is why music and movement are a crucial part of every child's life. The benefits of music are truly transformational when paired with play and movement. So what are you waiting for! Join in on the FUN!!! The practice of making music gives the brain and body a complete workout. Our activities are designed to encourage multi-sensory learning, which integrates several senses at once, stimulating multiple areas of the brain! Children interact with you as the parent, the teacher and other peers while being engaged in movement, rhythm and vocal practice that develops far more than just music skills. Our approach to learning music and sound sets up children for future success in school and in life.

Do you sometimes feel like you are a SLAVE to your household and children more so than a mother? It's a harsh reality for some stay at home moms, but I come to encourage you TODAY!! Being a mom in any form is... HARD! Whether you are a working mom, stay at home mom, breastfeeding mom, bottle feeding mom, whatever! Today I want to talk to my SAHM's (stay at home moms) though. I want you to know that I hear you and I understand. I know first hand that motherhood is hard work , but li ke I always say.. ... "though it's hard work, it's the good work of the Lord!" Please Don't Give Up!! I know it sometime feels as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders and like what you do day in and day out for your family doesn’t really matter to them or anyone at all. I know at times you sit in the car, plop your head on the steering wheel and just cry. I know sometimes you just want to throw in the towel and scream that you’ve had enough of all of
