Now I know my ABCs …

Life Lesson #16: Never pass up a teachable moment


Whether it’s practicing letters and sounding out words…or reinforcing table manners…I try not to pass up a teachable moment when I’m around little ones. “Everyday” inspiration is all around if we just look for it.









Are you a “teachable moment” teacher?  By habit–or training?


I’m linking these ABCs Around the House “notecards” to the Notecard Party at A Haven for Vee.  If you like them, use the “share” buttons below this post to “Pin It” or pass them along to friends.


This is part of a 31-day series.  All Life Lessons are available HERE.

  4. I loved these…and yes, I am a teachable moments mom by habit! These are great Note to come back and catch up on your blog.

  5. Your letters and monograms are very pretty! Love the pillow:@)

  6. Great images. Teachable moments are all around. I used them with my children and now with my little granddaughters. They are so observant and so willing to learn. Love the linens you’ve photographed. The valance is wonderful – is it vintage?

  7. Yes, I think I’m a teachable moment teacher (and learner). I probably have annoyed my girls over the years with it, but it’s the way I roll. I love these so much, especially that first one. I am going to pin it. Where I would use it, I do not know, but I love it. I’m thinking you could embroider all kinds of things. (IF I could embroider, which I can’t.)

  8. What a fun theme for Vee’s note card party. I like to think that I’m teachable and take advantage of teachable moments…

  9. Lovely images of your home decor – I especially like the first photo. Great notecards!

  10. I love linens and these are so pretty. They would make unique notecard photos. Blessings, Pamela
