I cut and pasted this off my waldorf-inspired blog because I know I am not allowed to link to my blog on this forum. A reader asked me how what bedtime routine we had to help settle the girls off to sleep. I thought it might help because teh girls have a really early bedtime. So here it is:   we have a very set bedtime routine that helps the children settle to sleep. They have quite an early bedtime. We have a family dinner between 5pm and 5.30 pm which candlelight...
hi, we have a family of evi dolls and the girls love them! Here is what they look like unclothed incase you want a better look at how they're constructed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25641871@N08/3918865907/    I have just stood one up on the table, and it stands up well just be shaping the legs the corretc way. Hang on, I will try it on the carpet for you...yes, it is fine standing on carpet too! I have never seen the plan ones so I can't compare. These ones are...

I am so so so jealous of where you live!!! You are so very lucky!   Thank you for the tip about the book by the way, i will keep that in mind!  
The girls don't have a hula hoop, I think I might keep that in mind for K's birthday next year!  
Just wanted to see how everyone is going now we're just about to start December! I thought I would share me list of what the girls are receiving for Christmas:   I got both the girls a german Pink Stripy Toddler dolll especially for bed.They're a nice size, completely natural and organic, and stuffed with wool so very warming! We're sticking to very simple this year, so they're having one pressie each from us and then Father Christmas stuff of course. For k's...
Unfortunately there is no way he would read the book,  he would possibly read crib notes from it but even then there is alot of UP that I think he would disagree with straight out...but at least we can talk about it I guess. I'm not sure if we will be on the same page about UP to be honest. He is totally open to talking about ways of dealing with issues that come up with the children though - he just doesn't like to be told how to parent from a book I guess! Thanks for...
Welcome! I'm in the UK and we live a Waldorf inspired homelife...how neat that you're training to be a Waldorf teacher! I trained to become a primary school teacher and specialised in early years but don't currently teach. Wanted to say hi!
Thank you for spelling out to me how all this interweaves into a Waldorf way of life, I felt so confused and your reply has really helped me understand. You have reminded me of things I already knew and have used in the past (that sometimes a child might need to be directed physically rather then verbally to carry out a task, so I can go along with her to put away her writing things for example) Again, I love your idea of making it into a game, which I have read before...
OMG, I think I would have cried too! Thank you so much for looking on Etsy for me! They are quite similar to what I was looking for.....but now I realise, and this is going to sound so fussy, but I think I prefer glass in the frames (I know none of these curved style frames had glass in them at all) so i might just get a glazed postcard frame in a nice wood...a bit boring I know!   I liked the little small holder, they actually have some of those in my local waldorf...
