No one reads my blog and I am feeling sad. Someone read it and give me some love!

I think today was "tired day." Oh, wait, that doesn't help, does it? You want something to distinguish days from one another, not another way to make them all the same.

Yea, we'd often have a lot of "fried-mommy" days as the toddler is being, well, very toddler-ish right now.

So, I have determined that we cannot do anything that involves pencils, pens, crayons, scissors, or anything related while ds#3 (15 months) is awake. : Oh my goodness ... he is in to everything and throws HUGE tantrums when I try to redirect or *gasp* remove an object from his mouth or hands (in the case of scissors). He climbs like there is no tomorrow ... he will be up on the dining room table in a heartbeat ... it is absolutely exhausting, especially when combined with my oldest's insatiable desire to "do school" right now. Of course, said toddler has yet to take a nap today ... so we've done very little except get mom's blood pressure up a few notches. I do pray this stage passes rather quickly ...

I saw this on your blog! I can't read all of your cards though. Would you mind sharing what they say. And, where did this idea originally came from?

BTW....I read your blog before you asked for it silly. It's really sweet.

I'm the one who wants to mix some Waldorf into our Math U See.

I know its October but I've been reading this thread with much interest. We came from a very waldorfy background. We were introduced to waldorf when dd#1 was 1. She went to 2 years of waldorf-inspired preschool and 1 year of waldorf kinder. We pulled her out last year. We used Enki kinder/grade 1 last year. Continuing with grade 1 the rest of this year and then starting grade 2 next year. Enki works for us and its easier for me being a new homeschooling parent to have things at my finger tips.

I think we'll continue with Enki grade 2 next year but I'd like to hear about what others have done to integrate other curriculums. I'm quite intrigued by unschooling as well and trying to figure out how I can add more of that into our day. Right now, we do our walk/movement in the morning, followed by 45-60 minutes morning lesson. Then play, lunch, rest time. And about 30-45 minutes practice or crafts in the afternoon. Sometimes we do 3 days of school, some weeks 4.

Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself here. And going off to look up all the different acronyms (MLB,...).

Welcome! Here is the link to the October thread. I can't write now, but will later.
