I’m Megan. I was a 2nd grade teacher for eight years and I LOVED it. The first few months I couldn’t believe people were actually paying me because I would have taught for free! Despite my love of all-things-kids, I never thought I would be a stay-at-home mom and went back to work after my first daughter was born. I did the same after my second daughter came along. Then I started to wonder “what if?” and when my daughters were four and two, I quit teaching. Now I really do hang out with kids for free!
Despite missing my co-workers and students, I am having a marvelous time staying home with my girls! Big Sis is five years old and will be going to kindergarten this fall. Little Sis is three-years-old. We (along with my engineer husband) live in the suburbs of Kansas City.
About the blog:
When I was a teacher lots of parents asked me how they could help their kids learn at home. They wanted to provide enrichment or practice skills that needed work. But how? Working parents don’t have a lot of time in the evenings. Kids don’t want to do flashcards or work out of a workbook. Yet there are lots of learning opportunities in the everyday: chores at home, driving in the car, going to places around town, and easy games you can make at home. You don’t need to make elaborate Pinterest projects to provide educational fun. You just need a few ideas for simple ways to teach your kids. Sooo…that’s what this blog is about. That, and some ramblings about motherhood and being a first time stay-at-home parent. 🙂 I hope this blog can be a great resource for ideas and encouragement.
