moving on to other topics...? Toddler teacherhood, for example

I think I want to change the name of my blog, but I can't remember how. I did it on my other blog (the one that died a silent death but is still sitting around in cyberspace), so I know it is possible, but I'll have to figure it out again. Unless one of you would like to share the secret. I'd appreciate that.

Anyway, I don't want to stop blogging, but my focus in life is no longer mainly on my mental health. So I think my blogging topics will need to start exploring alternate subjects. So for those of you who suffered through my mental health updates, (if there are any of you left), rejoice. And if all you want to read about is how I deal/dealt with OCD and depression - that is okay; I've been there to. But you might have to look into older posts. There are only something like 390 of them, so you should be able to read for a while. Or you could follow other blogs, since there are lots of great ones.

Anyway, my subject for today is being a Toddler Teacher.

You might be a Toddler Teacher if you have almost as many board books as the local library, and you still go out and borrow those, not to mention haunting thrift stores for "good" board books.

You might be a Toddler Teacher if you have proved to yourself that washable paint really does wash out.

You might be a Toddler Teacher if your nick-name for Lift-the-Flap board books is "Easy-to-Rip" board books.

You might be a Toddler Teacher if you just want to forget about that stuff for a moment (i.e., until you get into the next store selling supplies you are on the lookout for) and enjoy (or sleep through) your weekend.

And if you are a Toddler Teacher, or if you like cute little homemade stuff, you might appreciate my latest toy-making results. Rest assured; the paint is non-toxic. And some of it has gotten a bit messed up in the wear and tear (i.e., slime and teething) of toddler play, but they are still looking good. And think of how much money I saved making them out of scrap wood and painting them with paint I already had. I think I did go ahead and buy a new permanent marker to finish up, but I use permanent markers, so it wasn't just for that. Oh, and if I actually published this picture before and then forgot about it, my apologies.


  1. Okay, so I did figure out how to change my blog title. Thanks anyway.

    1. haha-- I was just getting ready to write you detailed instructions on how to change your title :-)
