Hi! I’m Sharon!
I am so glad you are here and invite you to stay awhile!
I am a mother of a four year old son and a two year old daughter. My other job titles are wife, homemaker, part time teacher and part time blogger.
A former city girl, I currently live with my precious family in the country. The farmhouse we live in was built by my husband’s great grandparents more than 100 years ago.
My husband and I come from musical families. We both play the piano, but not duets, even though we have two pianos in our house (one from his grandmother and one from mine). I also play the violin and love to travel, exercise, read and attend symphonies and musicals.
Most of my adult life has been dedicated to my passion of teaching young children. I spent 16 years teaching Kindergarten (hence my need for stress relief known as exercise and the energy booster known as coffee). No, really, it was a blast and I have many fond memories!
The past five years, I have taught Title I reading and enjoy working with students in a smaller setting.
Once a week, I volunteer at my son’s preschool. I love being involved in his education and watching him grow and thrive!
I Want to be Your Comrade in Play!
If you are like me you are juggling many balls in your life and trying hard not to let any of them drop.
You spend so much time attempting to provide for the important basic needs of your family that you don’t have time for playing and having fun with your children.
While play is not as important as food, clothing or shelter, it is still very essential to children’s development and well-being.
You realize this, but don’t know how to find the time for it.
And, when you do occasionally find the time, you aren’t sure how to play with your kids.
As an early childhood educator, and as a mother, I understand the importance that play has in the development of children.
Let me be your comrade in play! I will give you tips and advice on making time to play and interact with your children.
I will show you how to play with your children and share toys, books and activities you can use that will help your child develop, grow and learn.
My hope is that you will be empowered to be the playful mom you yearn to be!
Your children are only little for a small period of time. Make the most of the opportunity you have to spend time and interact with them.
May you have many playful moments in the days ahead!
