I think I'm insane

Here I sit 8months pregnant and I'm wanting to take on a challange. Give it if I fail miserably it wont matter too much, considering it's for my currently 21month old. I've been thinking I'm sick and tired of doing the same thing over and over again which isn't much. I mean I'm not a very hands on parent since being pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I've had my ups, but with lack of energy and now 8 months pregnant I have many downs. I would just like to do more in the way of teaching my toddler. It may also be because she's just now at that age where I feel it's ok to do more with her as far as teaching and crafts. I think I am going to start next week. Maybe have a letter of the week, a color of the week, a number of the week, and an animal of the week. Throughout the week I will lead her and we will do activities as they become available with whatever I chose. The reason why I'm not doing different things different days is because Monday I have 2 doctor's appointments 45minutes away, Monday night I have class at the hospital, Thursday I have a doctor's appointment in town, and who knows what I have going on with the MOMS Club. Not to mention I do have a little baby boy I will be preparing for. So I'm talking just a little segment of time a few days a week, a very relaxed schedule. Of course I will start with "A" and "1." Since dogs seem to be her favorite animal, I find it only appropriate to do dogs for our animal. Our color, will be, "red" that's a nice random color. She's a lot like I was when I was young and not really showing much preference to color. She seems to love all colors as I did. I feel since I'm blogging about this and if I let more people know about it that I can't fail as much. The cool thing is, even when brother comes into the picture this will still give us some mommy/Ellie time. And if for some reason mommy really can't join in her fun and learning, I'm sure Gammy will love to take over as "teacher" and "friend." Shoot maybe I'll do the same little coloring and painting as she does. I think I'll try it out next week, maybe post some pictures and see how it works. I'm excited, but afraid I will fail miserably as I am not a very organized and structured person. I need something to help me be more structured though. If I can't accomplish this, then honestly I think I need to plan on finding a job and sending the kids to some kind of daycare/preschool. I mean Ellie is smart, don't get me wrong, but as her teacher, I feel like my ADD and lack of structure may be affecting her in a negative way. Not something I'm cool with. So while I have the house to myself I will write the "lesson plan" for next week.

I was a stay at home nanny with four children, ages from two to six and one of the boys had Autism. So I loved to work learning into the little things. Read aloud together often. At that age, read too them. But it's still fun. Umm, another thing was I put big animal stickers on the ceiling above the bath so when I washed their hair I would have them look at the different animals.

Its always easy to feel depressed and as if yor not doing as much when in late term pregnancy. Its great you want to do these things, but remember to take it slow. She will still be a toddeler after this baby is born. You are a great mom for wanting these things and wanting to act on it, but its important to not stress yourself out.
The baby will be here soon, after a month or so of having 2, it will be a bit easier to fit in education with your older baby. If you get started and then have to take a break from it soon after because of the birth of another baby, I fear it may cause bad feelings upon yourself and you want to enjoy this time in your life, not beat yourself up. It will boost you once yu have the baby and feel better about yourself and now you can put in action your plans on teaching.
Are you wanting to homeschool? Just wondering... Congrats on your baby by the way, best wishes...
