Man, this pregnancy has been hitting me hard. I feel like an amoeba. I am tired all the time… well, except when I’m throwing up. I am getting too old for this!
So please forgive me for my lack of updates. I’ve hardly even been reading. It is pathetic!
The one (adult) book that I have finished was Teach a Child to Read with Children’s Books. My son already knew basic phonics, and we played around with Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons last year, so we had a bit of a base, but we are both loving this new method. There is something so much more satisfying for him when he reads an actual book and not something nonsensical like “Fat pat sat on a rat. Rat, Pat, rat!” People don’t even talk like that.
I highly recommend Teach a Child… if you are interested in a more literature-centered reading curriculum. It has been so lovely for us. The book lists in the back are great and if you need (or want) to keep records then he has some great sheets in there that you can print off. We checked it out from the library, so it was easy on the budgt and even Compact-friendly. 😉
Well, I’m off to make dinner and probably throw up again. I’m sure I’m making you all jealous. <rolling my eyes>
I have noticed your absence! I kept checking and nothing. Hehe. Now we want a belly pic!!!!! Here and/or on GCM!!!!!
I’ve been checking, too! Your blog is like brainfood to me. If my attention span lately won’t allow me to actually READ – at least I can read ABOUT reading at your blog!
My fave sentence of the day: “I’m off to make dinner and probably throw up again.”
This is a sentence you would only hear on the website of a pregnant woman or an open bulimic. I’m glad you’re the latter. But I certainly sympathize.
Thinking of you! And including my blog address. I thought I kept your e-mail but alas – can’t find it. Please come visit!!!
And I’m with Sharon – post a belly pic when you’re up to it!
Praying for you Amanda….those early months can be hard when you are so sick..I remember them well.
((Hugs)) to you!!
ACK!!! You’re not the latter! You’re the former! And I’m supposed to be MORE eloquent when I write, not LESS. Sorry. My humble apologies – for the record, I’m glad you’re pregnant! And I’m really not all that familiar with the websites of bulimics – not that I haven’t struggled with eating issues – but that’s another therapy session.
And grateful thanks to Sharon for keeping me on track!
Awww…even though I’m at the tail-end of my pregnancy and hating all the uncomfortable-ness, swelling, weight-gain, etc, you STILL couldn’t pay me to go back to the first trimester yuckiness. It’s really hard to deal with. I hope this passes quickly for you!!
