You know you are a "Waldorf Family" when...

Okay, maybe that should have been "modern Waldorf family..."

Dd was walking around with a wooden block to her cheek & ear using it for a cell phone today.

Add yours!

Your children choose playing outside to watching TV any day!

Your five year old daughter sees something pretty and says, "Mom! That's Waldorf-y!"

Your children's favorite snack is brown rice with shoyu and "magic powder" (ground flax seeds).
Your 4yo knows more about bread making than most adults. And thinks finger knitting is the coolest thing. EVER.

Your 3 year old sees someone's clay and says he "wants to play with that beeswax".
Your children call the fisher price little people at grammy's house "the plastic toys."
When someone shows your 6 year old DD a picture of all the Disney princesses and says "I'll bet you know who they are!" she looks at them confused and says: "fairies"?
Oh and: DD saw a little girl's Barbie birthday cake once (the cake was the skirt, and the doll protruded out of it) and was totally freaked out by it, and had no idea who this "Barbie" was who'd been shoved into a cake.

I had to laugh at these too as we've experienced both!

My daughter's "phone" is a giant shell.

We were in a shop and saw some Barbies and my daughter did wonder why there were fairies in boxes.

I'll be back when I am not too tired to think of our own original thing.

your daughter sees lots of polen piled up from the cotton-wood trees and calls it wool

your daughter sees a cotton ball and calls it wool

your daughter is in the store and sees a pile of character cake pans - and points out the odd one - "Look mommy, there's a lady bug!"

Too cute!
My DS was using an empty half grapefruit for a phone yesterday.

LOL! Another one we've had.
My mother sent my daughter a costume which is distinctly NOT wool. Hannah rubbed it all over, felt it was soft and said "This must be made of wool!"

Just remembered one from many years ago--

You know you are a waldorf family when...you buy your daughter art supplies for most birthdays and for Christmas and she is pleased! (she was probably in 2nd grade when I started this custom)

You know you are a waldorf family when...

- when your dc can make a two course meal out of branches
- when your 2 year old has to correct teenagers working in an outdoors store after they mistake a coyote for a wolf (okay this is not exclusive to Waldorf families, nature loving families would go for that one too)
- when your dc loves that little toy you whipped up in a couple of hours,...even if it is just to humour you

When your ds says he can't wait to go back to the wool shoppe to play with the spinner:

You know you've got a Waldorf kid when .....

you're at a park playground and are asked by a mom you don't know if you might have the time. You apologize because you don't have a watch, but your nine year old chimes in helpfully, "Well I can tell you", runs to park's decorative garden sundial and studies it for a few minutes. Then said Waldorf kid runs back to locate said "mom you don't know" and cheerfully reports, "The time is about 3:15".

You take your child to the park and instead of playing on the equiptment she spend the whole time digging under trees, making "food" and putting on shows for us.

your dd pics one of the waves in her water/wave puzzle and uses that as a phone.

your dd ignores toys outside to dig in the dirt or breastfeed a plant in the garden

your daughter refers to her crying newborn brother as a "freaky little gnome."

Got one that's happening right now!

Your child is given a princess outfit from a well meaning relative which includes a feather boa and a "crown" made from plastic beads and feathers.
Instead of being a princess she's being a bird (due to feather content) in it and feeding her baby birds. BTW, the bird is called Gertrude McFuzz.

Lol....

Mine would be when tonight I put on a hip hop cd and my son comes out with wooden sword and shield asking me to tie a playsilk into a cape so he can dance.
