What's This All About?

Welcome!  I'm so glad you've found Cutting Tiny Bites!  Here's a little bit about what you'll find here.

I am a stay-at-home mom to 2 little girls- Lena (born in the summer of 2010) and Maggie (born in the spring of 2012).  In pictures on the blog, Lena has the curly hair and Maggie the straight.  And though they're both beautiful, you won't see their faces here.  You can read a little bit more about our family here.

We do preschool at home, and that forms the basis of much of what I blog about. In fact, the majority of my posts are about our Weekly Preschool Themes. We are working our way through a list of 52 themes, each broad enough for a full week of learning, but not so broad as to be overwhelming.

If you are doing preschool at home with your children, you'll definitely want to check our our Basic Home Preschool Plan, as well as our Daily Home Preschool Schedule, and (of course) the Weekly Themes.  You can also subscribe to receive a weekly-ish newsletter to keep up with our shenanigans.

Each week, I focus on a certain theme (often related to the seasons or holidays) and try to incorporate crafts, picture books, science, fine motor activities, math, literacy, gross motor activities, snacks, field trips, and more.  Many of the activities that we do are original ideas, but I also love to feature and use ideas from other bloggers.

I try to keep it simple.  For several of Lena's toddler and preschool years, I printed and laminated printables for her, made elaborate manipulatives that we'd use once or twice, made file folder games that didn't get used.  Those things are great if you have the time, but frankly-- for me-- they weren't worth the effort they were taking to make.

I've got two kids and run a household and a blog.  I'm busy, and I know you are, too.  The activities I feature are simple and easy.  They may involve a trip to the craft store, but you probably have much of what you'll need on hand.  They're low prep and easy to execute because I know you don't have much time.

In addition to the weekly themes, you'll find great book lists with reviews, plenty of book extensions (crafts or activities to go along with favorite children's books), some sewing tutorials, parenting tips & tricks, and super delicious vegetarian recipes.

If you're interested in taking a peek at my top posts, you can find them below!

And in the interest of fairness, here are a few of my posts that have...ahem... not met expectations.  Want to give them some love and move 'em off this list?!

If you'd like to keep up with me on social media, you can find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or Bloglovin'.

And in case you're wondering about the name of the blog-- sometimes it feels like that's all we do, right?!  Ah, motherhood.
