Introducing TOTALLY TOTS!

Welcome to the brand new TOTALLY TOTS blog! This blog was conceived and designed all in one night when I woke up out of a dead sleep around 2 in the morning. After lying in bed fighting the ideas racing through my mind, I finally got up and spent an hour on the computer getting them all out of my head.

After that night, I began to bring the racing ideas to reality, and took some time to see if this was really the direction the Lord wanted me to go. Doors just kept opening and ideas kept flowing, so I continued to go with it and here we are!

I was going to wait and launch when all of the details were ironed out, but then I realized that the Lord will take us on this journey together as we grow as moms of tots-together. You can read a bit more in my About post.

For now, we will be launching features as they are ready, with more and more being added as time goes on. Be sure to add us to your *blogs I follow* list or a reader so you can see when new things are added! I really just want this to be a great resource for moms of tots who are desiring to keep their young children at home and raise them to love the Lord!

So, I invite you to join me on this journey. You can add our sidebar button to your blog(html over there on the right), write a post on your blog to help spread the word, or just join in as a reader(follow info on the left sidebar, subscribe info on the right sidebar)!

Congratulations! This is such a fantastic idea; we can't tell you how much we appreciate all of the hard work you have poured into this ministry. May God bless your endeavor!

Wow-I am very excited about this idea! I like that it will be a place for other moms to share things that are working for them too. I have two little girls in this category, a 16 month old and and almost 3 year old, and we are homeschooling big sister, who just turned 6. I look forward to seeing what is shared here. Bless you.

This is so exciting! I can't wait to see more! My friends here don't homeschool, so I am glad I have a place where I can talk to other moms who do!

This is great! I can't wait to start seeing even more of this wonderful site. We are moving toward keeping our son home with his Nana (hubby and I work FT), and this, combined with your home blog, are such great resources for us in creating our "Tot School" environment. I am extra excited to see the devotionals!
Thanks again!

TOTally terrific!

Will you still be hosting "Tot School"? Or does this replace it?

Carisa said...

Michelle- I will definitely be hosting Tot School too! This is just an extension of everything I already do on my other blog. Can you tell my passion is for TOTS? :)

Awesome Carisa! Everything looks great! I look forward to reading more. I will be praying for you and the work you are doing through Totally Tots!

Im excited to follow this blog. My kids are currently 15 mos and 2 weeks shy of turning 3. I havent committed to homeschooling - I do think it would drive me insane, but I have many friends who are currently homeschooling or were homeschooled. However, I never rule out the fact that, one day, God may call me to homeschool, just like He called me to be a stay at home Mommy. Blessings to you!!

Amy said...

Carisa this is awesome! I'm so excited! I love it and will be frequenting it often...I would love to get involved as well when the time is right. Thanks for being obedient to God and making such a support group for us moms of Tots!!
