Hi there! I hope its alright if I join! I don't know how often I'll be able to post, but I look forward to reading all of your ideas!
My dd is 16 months old and we've been doing some "montessori" activities from the start, though not much. I have taken 2 NAMC courses, and I really enjoyed them (the 0-3 and 3-6), but I had them payed for in exchange for volunteering full time at a Montessori school before I had dd. I'm planning on homeschooling dd until at least grade 1 (dh is unsure about after that). I do plan on incoporating some Waldorf into our school, but the majority will be Montessori (specifically the academic part will be Montessori). I'm really lucky in that my mom has made a ton of Montessori materials when I was young, and as well in her career as a teacher for children with learning disabilities. I also find that the NAMC have a lot of activities that you can make yourself, as I'm not interested in spending a ton of money right now.
I really need to work on getting her to help more, we have a stool in the bathroom for washing her hands/face and she brushes her teeth and hair with some help. We don't eat most of our meals at a small table, as I find that dd focuses on eating better at the big table. She drinks out of a real glass (we got a set of 6 for 1.99$ from ikea). I want to get her to bringing her own dish to the table, getting rid of the high chair for a booster that she can easily climb in and out of and have her help more in the kitchen, especially with cleaning up.
I love reading about your experiences and what you're doing. We are moving in a month, so I don't want to get anything more structured started now, but I hope after we move and set up a more montessori play room we can have more time focusing on her work. I also want to set up a better rhythm/schedule to our days. I know she's still young, but she enjoys doing a lot of the sensorial/practical life activities that the 3-6 yo work on.
