Strong-willed kids are awesome-- they're the ones who are going to change the world! I have to believe this because I have a couple myself, LOL! One thing that can be helpful whether your child is at home or in school is to do a little reading on temperaments, both your child's and your own. That has really helped me to understand my little ones and myself better. I really hear you on tending towards disorganization. That's something I struggle with as well. I recently...
Thanks (and hi Lauren!). We really love it here so far. Today we discovered the Happy Baby store and the AP Meet Up group.
We're new to the area and would love to meet up with other crunchy moms, homeschooling or otherwise. I'm also open to suggestions for family docs, pediatricians, etc. We're living right outside of Greentree. Thanks so much!

I still use elements of the daily/weekly structure that I created back when my oldest was a baby... and he's now...
I have a bunch of circle time ideas here on my blog: http://ourseasonsofjoy.com/category/circle/ I like to have the same circle time for 2 weeks at a time.
I'm looking down taking the picture. They're both in football holds.
I know I am resurrecting a very old thread, but I wanted to share the story the hospital did on my family: http://www.susquehannahealth.org/get-involved/susquehanna-health-foundation-/mending-a-mother-s-heart/page.aspx?id=1384 Also, I removed some of the pictures on here, as they had been stolen and posted on one of those weird fake websites that steals content. And here are the babies at almost ten months old! Tandem nursing Talk like a pirate day
AP = attachment parenting.It and NFL (natural family living) is what this entire website is based on.
