We dont have any 'stories' and we are still co-sleeping (DS was 4 in September)...and we have another one due this April...so we just bought a super huge bed! lol... But I have nothing negative to say about it! We have only had good come from it!
This is no longer a happy face post! lol We are stuck. My fanny is killing me and I can't do much walking right now!... And if school continues to stay out, I continue to gain no money (I nanny for some schooled children). At least DH can work from home (cause the car hasn't moved since Tuesday...they don't grit out area and its just far too dangerous to risk tbh) and can walk to Tesco which is about 20 mins walk away...as long as they actually have food in!...
The thing is right...I am feeling a bit distant from them now. I mean - they have always had their 'reservations' about the way we choose to parent. But nothing has really directly affected them. Whats it to them if we choose to co-sleep as a family, if I choose to carry on a nursing relationship with a 4 year old, if I wear my baby in a sling all-day-long...they have their reservations, they have their laugh but it really has nothing to do with them.

Really something I have never been fussed about - as long as you are not walking where there is dog poo and broken glass everywhere!...We quite enjoy being barefoot!
I have this book and I liked it as well. I bought it at the same time I bought Naomi Aldorts 'Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves'. Both books are along the same lines and to me, very 'consensual living' type of books. Both books give loads of good examples and ideas. A great help when you are stuck and need encouragment! One thing I did find, is that I did not find this as easy to read as Aldorts book. I think this is just how my brain is wired. Aldorts...
His hair sounds lovely! Do you have a photo somewhere like on facebook or on flickr or wherever? If you do - right click on the photo, then click on properites. Youll see an 'http://' thingy there - Highlight and copy that. Paste it here to share! hehe

I think its okay to express sadness the first way, but not so much the second way. I agree with this as well. I think you really have to watch how you say it. You can even replace the feeling of 'sad' with any other feeling such as 'angry' or 'frustrated'. ...
