About Me

Creating a short blurb that can accurately capture me is tough.  However, if you've seen any of the blog, you have seen my main motivation and reason for being, my son, Xander.  I am a thirty-something year old mother. When I divorced my son's father I stumbled upon early education and went back to grad school to become a teacher.  While in grad school and my first years of teaching I had a blast exploring early learning with my son.  I am doing my best to provide the happiest, most enriching childhood possible as my son grows up so much faster than I would like.  Since I started blogging I became a high school teacher, and met the love of my life.  I feel so blessed to have a healthy child and to be able to provide a wonderful dad for him.  I look forward to more adventures in early learning as our family grows!

  3. I agree with the previous comment. I have no kids yet myself, but work with foster children, and though I've only had time to look at a small fraction of this site so far I can already see that its going to be very useful.

    1. Swathi,

      Thank you for the sweet compliment! I try hard with him, but I know I am far from perfect!

      As far as what you need to buy, that is really up to your and your kids. My printer was a big investment for me. I print on card stock a LOT, so I actually called all the printer customer service reps to find the most economical printer that would handle it well (I was very disappointed to learn most printers are not built to handle printing on card stock. Of course, I learned it after I ruined the feed system on my previous printer). I ended up with an HP Office Pro 8600 (http://amzn.to/RIqPa1). I have been very happy with it and have been pleasantly surprised by how long the ink lasts. Another staple is a laminator. I have this one (http://amzn.to/HAX9Be) and either buy these sheets (http://amzn.to/MCCl2N) or the ones from Sam's Club, depending on which is cheaper at the time.

      The rest of what you want would depends on how old your children are. If you have really young children, I would recommend downloading the free trial of Little Reader (http://www.brillkids.com/ra.php?BKAFF58564) My son is two and can read hundreds of words, most of which I attribute to that program. As far as toys go, I like the open ended and creative toys.

      I hope this answers your questions! Feel free to email me any time.

  6. Dear Kaysha,
    I just came across your blog and I am so grateful for you and the time and effort you have put into not only helping your own son but other children and parents as well. I have been searching and searching for how am I going to present my daughter with the best learning experience. I want to homeschool her for sure. She just turned 3 and has down syndrome. She is a bright girl but slightly delayed from other toddlers her age. I feel she is ready to take the next learning step and the Mommy and Me ABCs is going to be a perfect tool. Your ideas and easy to follow instructions are just what I am looking for. Thank you for sharing all that you have and for being an inspiration of encouragement to other moms.
