Teaching Through Imagination

My two-and-half year old toddler is becoming very imaginative. It’s amazing to sit back and watch her play with her favorite Paw Patrol figures, interacting with them as if they had jumped right out of the TV screen. She knows all their names, goes on adventures, and rescues her perilous farm animal toys from the […]

Back to Daycare

Seeing how my daughter is only two, and isn’t in real school yet, we started her in daycare at our local church. It was last year and I was very hesitant that this tiny little one-year old girl, who is still learning and understanding the world, wasn’t ready to be away from her mommy. I […]

Print Your Own Baby Bullet Activity Page!

My 4-year-old son just finished his first year of preschool, with one more to go before kindergarten (sigh). In the first year, they focus on letter recognition, one of the first major building blocks of reading and writing. He can recognize his name and most uppercase letters in the alphabet, but he can only write a […]

Herbarium Project for Kids

As an English teacher, it should come as no surprise that many of my personal interests and passions are rooted in literature. For example, I became deeply and profoundly interested in studying natural and herbal medicine after reading Hamlet in high school. Poor Ophelia’s herb-infused meltdown ignited one of my lifelong joys. In this same […]

5 Ways to Promote Baby’s Speech and Language

Promoting your child’s speech and language development is crucial from the very beginning – this will lay the foundation for the rest of their learning, all the way through adulthood! While learning word associations, cadence patterns, and more, their little minds start growing, and communication starts becoming engrained. Here are a few ways to help […]

Ms. Pickle, Piano Teacher

I’m going to take a moment to stray from food talk. Now before you gasp and say, “But it’s Thanksgiving month. ALL talk should be food talk!” I’m going to go ahead and say that, in my years of writing for Baby Bullet, I’ve looked at it as sort of an all over health and […]

What I Wish They Taught in Schools

My 7-year-old barges into conversations. No matter how many times I ask her to wait, to listen, or to be patient, she basically doesn’t comprehend that information and still does it anyway. She also has trouble meeting people’s eyes. Often times this can be interpreted as rudeness or disrespect. And these are just one of […]

Music in the Household

My husband has many talents; aside from being great with our kids, he has been many things: a musician, an installation artist, a computer programmer, an entrepreneur, a yoga teacher (in training), a life coach, and more. His original and greatest passion is music. He was a musician when we met and spent his time […]

First Years Compared

Our second baby just turned one and we couldn’t help but notice the insane differences we’re already seeing between our first and second-borns. Our first son Oliver is a thinker; even as an infant he was calculated and analytical, very cautious. Jake, our second, – not as cautious. Now, we get to experience the joy of […]

I Hope You Dance

Years ago, I used to drive around, nieces and nephews packed in the car, windows down, hair blowing, blaring Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.” Not exactly the coolest song in the world, and I can’t imagine it did much for my street cred, but we loved it and it still pretty much encompasses […]
