Sometimes we Mamas are our own toughest critics! We look back on a week that got away from us and focus on what didn’t get accomplished instead of what did! This week as you prepare for the celebration of our Savior and plan meals, school, housework, etc. take some time at night to focus on what DID get accomplished and thank God for it all!

The above thought was inspired by Mama Kaysha over at Memorizing the Moments. I love how she so eloquently wrote of her disappointment over lost time and how God brought to mind a valuable lesson learned during that “lost time” – making it not lost, but priceless!

Memorizing the Moments


I love Mama Charlton’s perspective over at My Spare Time. Despite the fact that it took about five months to complete the first Tot School lesson, she remained positive and loved the time spent with her daughter Meredith. I also totally LOVED the use of marker caps for color matching! Check out the other activities that Tot and Mom enjoyed over the months.

Mama Alicia, from Teacher Turned Mama, shares how even our best intentions can go awry and make us feel as if we’ve earned the worst Mama award! Read her post to see how she doesn’t dwell on the negative and finds the positive throughout the rest of the week!Teacher Turned Mama

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
    Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept .
