    Best Fine And Gross Motor Skill Gifts For 3 Year Olds

    I can’t believe my toddler is turning 3. It felt like just yesterday I brought my little bambino back from the Krankenhaus (hospital) and here she is, blowing her 3 candles on her birthday cake soon.

    I think 3 is a fabulous age. Even now at 2, I’m blown away of her capabilities. There are times I feel like I’m talking to a mini-adult, she placing her hands on her hips, conversing to me about everything and anything. So what’s more at 3.

    Summer Holiday Chore Chart | Tween Edition

    THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS – It’s every kid’s favourite time of the year. A time where they’re allowed to sleep late, sleep in, play the whole day, and sit in front of their screens. Although I allow them to have that downtime and let loose during the holidays, that doesn’t mean they can stuck their heads on their tablets and glue their faces in front of the TV the whole day. Therefore, some normalcy is needed to prevent the forthcoming lazy days.
