Things are going pretty good here. Yesterday, we worked on the outdoor playspace, adding a rock pile, stick pile and such. The girls are loving their outside time.
DD1 said this morning... Yay! it's a school day, I don't have to watch (meaning TV). I allow her a movie and one short one on the weekends because she has been used to regular TV over the last year.
We fell off the wagon for awhile. She has done so good with this and hasn't begged for TV or anything. her comment today, tells me she might be looking for more structure on the weekends. We often go stay all night with one set of the grandparents or at least visit them every weekend. At their houses it's a free for all because DH and I are a little "kooky" in our parenting choices.
But, I'm thinking there might be a way to make it more structured for her.
DD2 is having some kind of issues. I think it is teeth and some sort of separation anxiety. She has been trying to get her canine teeth for months now. She has loose stools and is so cranky. All morning she follows me around crying and trying to hold to my legs as I go about my morning chores. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to wear her as my back went out. She chewed shoes all day today. I had to keep taking them from her. Also, she cries and whines alot in my presence, but today I went to the chiropractor and DH kept the girls. She did wonderfully, until I came home and went back to the whining and needing me to hold her for long periods. I feel bad for her and wish there was something more I could do to bring back my happy baby. She's even stopped wanting to walk on our nature walks, which she used to love to do because normally she is very active and loves outdoors.Halloween
- I do take my girls to trick-or-treat in a small area so the candy is limited. I throw away most of the candy, but allow them a treat jar for after dinner or on special days. It is my favorite holiday and I'm looking to make it more original to us this year. We'll carve a pumpkin and I'd like to have a dinner for friends and family. I have a wreath to decorate with stuff from our nature walks. Also, I'll do whatever is suggested in Little Acorn.
We are having such a blast with that curriculum. It is written very mindful of a budget and what might be readily available to a person.Anyone have any thoughts on the grain or color of the day? Does anyone follow these principles? Where might I read more about them?
