The Itsy Bitsy Spider

spiderThis morning in the car on the way to preschool, the twins were talking about a spider they saw inside the house. Inside the house! I’m not sure how they’ve never seen one inside before, but for some reason this rocked their little world. Why was he inside the house? What did he want? Was he there for a reason? Didn’t he know he belonged outside? The questions were flowing fast and quick.

Last night, I found an article on using “I wonder” questions to foster inquiry and curiosity, so I decided to give it a go. “I wonder,” I said to the twins, “how that spider came into our house. Do you have any ideas? Any theories?”

Spotlight on… Molly!

Oh, Molly. What can I say about Molly? Often , half joking, I say that Molly is just like me if I had even fewer filters and no moral compass. But really, she’s  a lot like me. It’s ridiculous.

Mommy and Molly

As a baby, Molly was super serious. In fact, it became a bit of a Facebook joke. People were surprised when a picture of Molly smiling made an appearance!

Her best friend is still her twin brother, Matthew.

Spotlight on… Matthew

It’s hard to know what to say say about Matthew. When people used to ask (as people do when you have more than two children) when you’re going to stop procreating, I used to say “Oh, you know, when God gives us an easy one.” And then God sent me Matty… and, for good measure and to keep me on my toes, threw in Molly as well. Ha, ha, ha… good one, God!
