Someone mentioned indigo childern to me awhile ago at a playgroup. We were talking about how my daughter imaginary friends aren't so imaginary. And today, I had extra time on the computer, both of my girls slept in and I found this post.
Natalie definately fits the crystal child. She was a late talker, though I never realized it. I remember my husband coming home one day and trying to figure out what she wanted. We never had a hard time communicating. But we had to fight through the whole thing with speach therapy. I found it kinda funny, the speach therapist after a few months never had any problem understanding her, but when I took her into another therapist, she couldn't understand her. But everyone comments on her eyes, which are just insanely beautiful. And she is always giving hugs and love to everyone. And when you get to talking about her friends, shehas had imaginary friends for a very long time. I remember her playing hide and seek when she was 18 months. I had dreams, when we lived in that house, of a small girl, that is who I think she was playing with. She also loves rocks, like it is a little funny to see her obbsession with them. She always tried to give people certain rocks too. We also joke that we live in a musical. We sing instead of talking often. I think I am slightly indigo. I have always had dreams. Soemtimes they weren't about much, but I knew I had to talk to the person who I dreamed about. It is harder now that I am an adult. I don't feel right anymore calling up a friend and say, hey I had a dream about you, what's wrong? My friends when I was much younger thought it was neat that I knew when something was wrong, now its just freakish... Maybe I just don't have the right friends now. I have always been called Pollyanna, because I see things that I want to change. But everyone was so negative when I was growing up, I think it got me very down. I am trying not to be that way with Natalie. I want her to think she can make these changes. We are homeschooling, but Ihave a question for those who homeschool, do you have problems? Like, Natalie has no interest in alphabet, numbers or even shapes or anything like that. But we got a Time LIfe series on freecycle, thinking it would come in handy with all of her questions. Well, for example a few nights ago, we had Ecology. And it talked about how certain plants are native and why we should keep these plants native and not introduce things thta need special care blah blah. And we were talking about it after and she totally got it about keeping things natural and where they belonged. She understands the respect that we need to have for the earth, but getting her to count to 10
: I am not so worried about it right now, she is still really young, I let her take the lead, but when she gets older I am afraid that I won't be able to homeschool her because she isn't learning what she is susposed to. Sorry this post is very rambled, it is just kinda neat to see that other people have childern like this. We have always known Natalie was special. Oh, and I think the child currently in my belly is one also. I am pretty sure this is a girl, and I see her in my mind. I started having dreams about her right after ovulation. I do have a problem Her name is Gwendolyn. My husband doesn't like this name. I have never felt this strogly about a name before. But I really can't figure out how to connvince him
I haven't had a chance to read all the pages, but I am looking forward to when my kids are sleeping
