#MicroblogMonday – bulletin points

Today is a bulletin point sort of day…

– I think I spoke a bit too soon. I am now feeling slight allergy symptoms, but so far not bad enough to force me to take medication. I’m impressed.

– I hate ants. Actually, I would go so far as to say I might even have a phobia of them. I know I have reacted irrationally around/because of them at times. And yet, my boy plays with them. He willingly lets them walk on his hands. *shudder*

– As we were walking home this evening, he picked up a piece of asphalt. I asked him to put it down…and he goes on to tell me that he had a fine piece of asphalt.  And when I finally did get him to put it down, he put it next to the “daddy” piece of asphalt.

– This evening Paxlet asked me to sing him a song about a screwdriver that was stuck in the ground and an ant that was playing with the screwdriver. This isn’t his first request like this either. He usually asks Mr Siili all sorts of silly things.

– I couldn’t get over the feeling of loss of my mom yesterday. It put me in quite a sad and foul mood.

– I finished sewing a full set of the cloth letters. They turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

– How can it be so difficult to pick out a name (first and middle) for such a little girl?! 5 weeks on and she still doesn’t have a name! We think we might have first name, but we can’t figure out a middle name that sounds good with it. I’m almost ready to choose a different first name, but we can’t even figure out any other names.

A song bag

One of the mom and baby groups Paxlet and I go to has a song bag. During circle/song time, each kid gets to grab one song out of the bag and then we all sing and act it out. The organizers are nice enough to have the lyrics printed out, pretty paper to glue the words on and contact paper to protect it all. The only thing missing was the song bag itself. So I made one.
This song bag was made by recycling a button-up shirt I bought from a second hand store a while ago for 1€ and an old shoelace that my mom gave me for a cat toy. (Sorry cats, I have a better use for it now.)

I can’t wait to finish cutting out and covering our songs. So far we only have Finnish songs. I need to get some English ones printed and made too.
Do you have any favorite children’s songs or nursery rhymes that we should include?
