DD is turning 3 in March and I have been obsessing that I have not given her all that I could have, haven't taught her enough etc. People always say that kids learn the most until 3. Montessori talks about sensitive periods for that time period. It has beed hard to sit down with her and do things. She is active ( but she wants to for a short time), I am tired. I feel like I am always struggling. I have a hard time getting us fed and keeping the place livable. I often just give her art supplies and leave her alone. Or I let her play on her own (which she really only started to do recently) We do a lot of things out and about-we go to beach, play in yard, read, go to Zoo etc. We try to expose her to things, try to be active, try to teach her to be loving and gentle, talk to her so she can understand etc. I do feel like I have done a good job in someways but I REALLY have been worrying about not having helped developed some aspects of what she needs(needed?) or should have developed etc.
I have this terrible sense of a door, looming, ready to slam shut.
