Mama Loves: Construction

Welcome to another week of Mama Loves! I'm so thrilled that you stopped by!

Manic Mother

The winner of the Nellie's All-Natural Giveaway last week is Emily from hsquaredblog. Congrats, Emily! If you have a second, go say hi to Emily, give her some twin mama encouragement, and see some super cute pictures of her daughters Haley and Hazel.

A few great mama-ideas from last week:
Little Kids The Original No-Spill Bubble Tumbler (Colors and Styles May Vary)
  • Cat is a seasoned mama! She regulates sweets with her kids with a party bucket. This teaches her kiddos about economics and generosity. Check out this brilliant idea!
Every time my girls passed by a construction site, we call all the equipment "tractors"---mostly because I don't know the technical names for most of them.  

So, my friend Ellyn suggested the book, Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site.

Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site

The book has rhythm and rhyme and talks about several different kinds of construction equipment. The girls love to read it, and now when we drive past construction sites, they can point out the bulldozers and excavators (and so can Mama!).

Can't wait to see what you're loving!

We will definitely check out this book! Em and Drew are all about anything that moves--cars, trains, planes, tractors, buses! I can see this one becoming an instant favorite!

Yay! I'm so excited! I've never won anything before!... Now what do I do? :-)

PS. I was thinking of/praying for you yesterday. I hope you finally have some answers about dear little "Pat".

That book is a favorite at our house!! My son knows the names of all the construction vehicles but tends to call them collectively "Bob the Builder Trucks" which always makes me smile.
