Big C Enters Pre-K

I just closed my eyes for a second and Big C went from a tiny baby to a Pre-K big girl.  How does this happen?  For the past 4 and a half years, we have spent the majority of our days and nights together.  I have been her soul teacher.  So, it was a little weird to let her walk away with her class this morning.

I’m so proud of Big C though.  I’m looking forward to seeing how much she grows and learns this year.  But goodness, today was super exhausting.  This new schedule is going to take a little getting used to, but I know it’s going to be wonderful!

And then there’s Little M who started to cry when he saw his big sister walk out of our sight.  I know he is a bit confused, but I’m looking forward to getting some one on one time with him.

How did your child’s first day of school go?

Count My Blessings Children’s Book + Giveaway

Disclosure: I wrote this post on behalf of Tommy Nelson and received a promotional item to thank me for my time.  All opinions regarding Tommy Nelson and Count My Blessings 1 2 3 are my own and were not influenced by other sources.


This month, I let Big C pick out the book she wanted to review, instead of me.  She chose Count My Blessings 1 2 3, which is in the same family of books that Little M reviewed a couple of months ago, Noah’s Noisy Zoo.  




Before I could even open the book and start reading, Big C sat down with her little brother and made up the words to each brightly, colored page.  They both examined the cute cut-outs inside the board book and were completely engaged!

Count My Blessings 1 2 3 combines counting with a faith element.  Children learn to count God’s blessings with food, clothes, a house, mommy, daddy and more!  This book is perfect for children ages 0 to 4 and would make a beautiful baby shower or birthday gift.

Tommy Nelson is giving away one copy of Count My Blessings 1 2 3 to one blessed reader.  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  This giveaway is open to US residents only.
