No Waldorf guilt around here! For kinder we do 30 - 60 min a day of poetry memorization (mostly Robert Louis Stevenson), phonics (All About Spelling or Explode the Code), handwriting (Writing Can Help), religion (Old Testament stories), art (Child-Sized Masterpieces), math (Saxon 1), literature (read-alouds), and music (learning hymns). It's very low-pressure and fun, despite being content-rich. That's the core, and then it is supplemented with notebooking, Draw Right...
My four-year-old LOVES the preschool lapbooks from A Journey Through Learning. He keeps begging me to work on his lapbook!
Congratulations! Brings back wonderful memories of my VBAC.

Thanks for the well-wishes. I've been over there this afternoon helping with nursing. She's had a little trouble there, which I attribute to not getting to for many hours after birth, but she is (they are) learning quickly. I told her I'd be available to go back later tonight after my kids are asleep. We enjoyed rehashing the experience today. She is rightly proud of herself for managing drug-free.
Here to vent to people who will understand. My sister asked me to be her labor support as she wanted an unmedicated, all-natural birth. I live five hours from her. I arrived when she was getting close to transition. For some unknown reason she was on Pit when I got there, even though she was dilating like gangbusters (I think she stalled out at four, her water hadn't even broken yet, but *someone* was in a damn hurry). So the labor nurse keeps talking to her during ctx...

Gotta say...that's the funniest thing I've ever heard of...not in a humorous way but in all due sarcasm...ha, ha. I have to give my hats off to all the WAHMs out there...cause I don't know how they do it! Having a young child, I find it impossible to work at home. Maybe...
I am of the "do it when they want to" mentality as well. My first son did not fully potty learn (I'm not counting overnight) until age 4-1/2. My second son is not yet there at almost 4. My girls were both around 3-1/2. I just find it so much less stressful to let them teach themselves by watching us and wanting to. I do let them go naked a lot and they have all been fully trained while naked only for a good year before being fully trained while clothed.
I'm taking 20 mg/day of generic Prozac (fluoxetine).
Thank you so much for all the help!
