  1. Stay at Home Parents
    What do you think? I stay at home and have for a long time, and when my kids were babies people seemed pretty positive, but as they get older and my role is less baby-minding and more homemaking I'm encountering a bit of negativity. Like that I'm spoiled, I'm letting my brain turn to mush, etc...
  2. Frugality & Finances
    ***This started out as a Fall Pantry Challenge but it's moved on to Winter now. So lets keep this going. :) ***I hadn't seen one started yet. With the start of Fall I thought it might be appropriate. The Fall tends to be a busy time for my family between homeschool, running practice, soccer...
  3. Gentle Discipline
    I'm a big fan of Alfie Kohn and I really try to avoid punishment in any circumstance.

  4. Parenting

  8. Learning at School
    I'm learning that this is a heated topic, so let's keep the responses civil. Could some of you educate me a little on the Common Core? There's a lot about it online, but I'm interested in hearing from moms who share some Natural-Family-Living values. My LO is facing it in school, and I'm not...
  9. Frugality & Finances
    The title isn't quite right, but I couldn't think of another way to ask it. I'll tell the story and then ask my question afterwards and you ladies can contribute as you see fit... My almost-13yo was invited to a birthday sleepover by a classmate. They all attend a very charter school, which is...
  10. Homebirth
    I have had a homebirth with my second and absolutely loved it. My CPM was great and I delivered fast. My 3rd was delivered in the hospital again for insurance purposes and I butted heads with all the hospital staff there when I showed up to deliver (I showed up an hour and a half before...
