Noah has been having fun doing some Montessori-inspired activities in Tot School lately. He has been working a lot on pouring water, and he's become quite skilled. I filled up a seltzer can with water, and he practiced pouring it into two cups. Then, I put colored water in a little pitcher that he also practiced pouring. Of course, now that he can do it, he insists on pouring everything by himself. Sometimes that's just not a good idea (like pouring a gallon of milk!), and he gets quite upset with me. I often try to find real-life situations where he can help, and that seems to make up for it!
