Comment on Homemade Baby Food by Perfecting Motherhood

Wed, 23 Jun 2010 18:13:10 +0000

Thanks for encouraging moms to make their own baby food. It's really not that complicated, it's economical, enviromentally friendly (no disposal of hundreds of baby jars) and it tastes way better than processed baby food! I recently posted some advice on making your own baby food also: http://perfectingmotherhood.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/how-to-make-your-own-baby-food-homemade-tastes-best/

Ha, our youngest enjoys the Wiggles version of Skip to My Lou so the whole family has skipped in the living room during the last month.



Comment on Unschooling… by Rebekah

Sat, 24 Apr 2010 14:57:45 +0000

I just had a great discussion with a friend on this one. We're in the middle of each, traditional homeschooling and unschooling. Our children and most are, naturally curious and do learn great by everyday things. We are already seeing this first hand with a baby and with a four year old. But we also see the importance of teaching the classic subjects to help them succeed in life. Both areas are just as important to us. Right now we are going at Oscar's pace and we plan on keeping it that way for now. Some days we do "school" and some days we don't. Some times we even go weeks without picking up a book. Yet, I feel like Oscar is ready for a traditional kindergarten classroom in the Fall if necessary. We try to watch our children and learn their interests and help teach them through those outlets where we naturally learn more easily. I have found it super important to not force school time on Oscar. If he's not interested, he's not going to retain it and I am just going to get frustrated for him messing up and not paying attention. I can see how the family on GMA could seem a little "radical". How they explained themselves in the segment is defiently not the route best for us. I don't think its wise for our children's future. (hope I didn't babble too much and that this makes some sense).

I too struggle with this. I wonder if this is a common mom thing? Its so hard to be truly present!



Comment on Monkey See Monkey Do by Jaclyn

My mom was just telling me today how my nephew asked her how much she would give him if he helped her with the lawn, to which my mom replied, "Nothing, but you can still help me." And he whistled while he helped collect leaves. I think your on to something letting kids help because they want to help, and not have to help... I think I would like this book.

That is the route we are pursuing. I need to find out what Texas says about it. But like you said and this books speaks to much on is that learning is an everyday every activity way of life. Our kids will want to learn the things they see us doing and the things that seem interesting to them and if we capitalize on their interests, educating will not be made difficult. I've even been reading up on how sometimes homeschool can become so much like public school with it's ridgeness and methods, so I am getting a lot of different perspectives to keep the fire to learn alive. So excited to hear about how Oscar is growing up! He'll be able to teach miss Penny & Olivia so many wonderful things.

So have ya'll decided to homeschool? In the year that I have occasionally started with Oscar, I have seen GREAT success....and I don't even have an official curriculum yet! Although he should technically with the US' age rules should be starting preschool in the fall, we are going to dive right into a kindergarten curriculum. I'm so proud of the little man Oscar is becoming and so grateful for God leading us to the path :)



Comment on Natural Deodorant Update by Nichole

The scent is worse than B.O. when using natural deodorants. I have only found that if you do sweat and don't shower for a day or two (from camping experience) that you will emit and odor but that you can just reapply the crystal and it takes care of it.

Cooool! I haven't tried it & am so gonna buy some soon. I haven't found a consistently good natural deodorant either. Val definitely is against them because of the less than fresh result.. Almost worse than plain B.O.!
