The age of two for toddlers is also famous as the 'terrible two' stage. It's true especially for a hyper active kid like Jacob.
Fortunately, there's also that bright side of turning two. The stage I've been waiting for. The stage where we can somehow interact and understand each other better. The stage where I can start to teach him. I'm excited because instead of playing around, I can instruct him to do productive activities that could really help me(more than him). Keeping him busy while learning.
I use anything around the house to help him count, categorize, and learn new things.
Laminated print outs, or sometimes, I just get an unused page from an old book. Laminate it, and let him write on it so he can use it as many times as he can.
