Book#5: When Posy Peeked at Christmas by Ann Dixon

I asked Javin what he wanted for breakfast, he said Pistachios - what 'normal' kid wants Pistachios for breakfast? They are delicious, but for breakfast?
Today was our Pirate day! I was so SUPER excited about it too! I made this treasure map for Javin, I had to get some stuff done and I wanted to make it fun for him.

First: We had to traverse the "Mountains of dirty dishes" - he rinsed while I washed.
Second: We stopped at the "Apple Juice Tavern & Grill" - he only wanted applesauce.
Third: We went back to the "Mountains of now clean dishes" to put in our dirty dishes.
Fourth: We quickly stopped by the "Waterfall & Tub" for a bath.
Fifth: We "Scrubbed the deck" by cleaning his room, just a few things on the floor.
Sixth: "Hiding the Booty", Javin doesn't only have toys in his bedroom, so we hid/put away the toys in the livingroom too.
Lastly: I had put some starbursts, bag of Popcorn and thumb drive with the movie Peter Pan in his sea turtle backpack and hid it under the table in the hall.

It was way fun and reminding Javin of the treasure hunt kept him on task, it worked like a charm :)

I introduced Javin to the wonderful world of Play-doh today.
 He made a all sorts of animals, when I put away his yellow seahorse he cried, it was so sad. I reminded him that we can Play with it another day, he seemed to be satisfied with that answer.
 We made Pink Play-doh Ps, He LOVED it!
