Toddler friendly healthy meal plan

What what - a meal plan is finaaally being published? Yes! I'm super excited to get cooking, get back to food, get back to taking care of my men (Mr. Toddler + Mr. Husband). 

So does this mean you're going home? Well, no. Sadly, I still have a few more weeks to hang out at the rehabilitation centre, but this lovely place has a little house on it's property that is completely wheelchair friendly that we will be staying in for 8 days! 

These days are going to be fairly hectic as I will still have very intensive therapy, as well as a house guest - Mr. Toddler while the hubby will be working during the week. Going to therapy with Mr. Toddler shall be quite an adventure and quite the test for my energy levels. 

A mini life update 

Given that I haven't been as active as I had hoped during my recovery, I guess there's no post like a meal plan to leave you guys updated - I'm doing very well! I am finally at a point where I am independent and can care not only for myself but also for Mr. Toddler who gets to stay the night with me every so often.

This also leaves me quite exhausted and unorganised when it comes to doing anything except for the day to day tasks involved in caring for myself and my kiddo. 

Basically, my computer time has been pretty minimal. As my energy comes back, especially with my release date coming up in a few weeks, I really do hope to get back to blogging here regularly again. I do have a few projects and bigger things I am working on at the moment so I am realistically planning to get back to the pre-accident swing of things around the start of the next academic year. Then, it seems like a logical start for lots of toddler/preschool (eep!) activities as well as more food because summer basically means barbecuing and salads for me. 

In the meantime, here's my first meal plan since my accident, which will also be my first time cooking again! This first week will be quite intense so my strategy is to go for easy, large portions for tons of leftovers! The husband will only be joining Mr. Toddler and I in the weekend so I can really get away with making some super quick meals! 

I am also so, so, so, so excited to get away from hospital food which has meant that I go to the cafeteria at least once a week and get french fries. Because that's all they have and they're better than hospital food. I guess. Oh yes, meal plan... here it is!

Summer printables: Prereading cards

Mr. Toddler started asking to learn his letters a few months prior to my accident. We still haven't gotten back into the full swing of works like we used to do though (which has left this Mama a bit upset). In the meantime, I have started to work on creating new printables with a focus on pre-reading for the weekends. 

Today, I am sharing a very simple pre-reading freebie! Using Mr. Toddler as inspiration, I put these cards together to demonstrate some of the images and activities of summer. These cards can serve as either a pre-reading work or a seasons activity by introducing your little ones to the times of year!

Summer cutting practice

As the weather has started finally turning for the better in my neck of the woods, I am so excited to start placing new works on Mr. Toddler's shelves. I'm starting to get back to replacing his activities after my accident and summer themed works have been on my mind! 

Today, I am sharing a simple cutting practice freebie! You can entertain your little ones with this cute cutting activity, while having them practice using scissors! Mr. Toddler loves these types of works and this printable is perfect for this time of year!

Montessori outdoor spaces and activities

Even though the Dutch weather is still pretty gray, summer is in the air! My family loves spending time outdoors, enjoying nature, and exploring! Mr. Toddler is very inquisitive and I love adding nature exploration to our homeschool works. Summer is a perfect time to get some educational outdoor exploration into your day! 

In order to inspire you, I put together a collection of some of my favourite outdoor spaces and activities that you can be sure to enjoy with your little ones this summer!
