As we play with Lego and another set of toys which I brought out from storage recently, I also found out he recognises several colours like blue, red, green, yellow, orange and purple and can tell us accurately so.
I used to do a systematic homeschooling curriculum with Marcus for a few weeks, but I aborted after I got tired and lazy and when he became less interested. There is a weekly content, based on alphabet, numbers, colours, vocabulary, craft, song, etc.. And I diligently and enthusiastically did the content myself for a few weeks, but of course I had more time and hence more motivation then. Now I do feel like I am fighting fire sometimes, and after a long and tiring day, drilling content into the baby is the last thing on my mind. Luckily, he learns very fast! Now, I just need to rethink the daily routine and fit that little bit in somewhere in his waking hours. Hmm.. I need to blow the dust off my dossiers of materials and re-ignite my flame to summon up that motherly love I have and nurture his growing brain. My lists of to-do and must-do just seems never ending.
More on this later this week.
