You know, I never quote know what to put here. I have two mailing lists: Natural Childhood, where I try to post tips, ideas, recipes–just little things for adding Waldorf-inspired ideas to your life–and feasts and festivals, which is mostly feasts and festivals, LOL! I guess I invisioned this as a place to post day-to-day stuff. But I’ve been trying so hard to stay offline during the day, and by the time night rolls around, I’m really, really tired.


Nicholas is sick. It’s hard to keep to a routine with a three-year-old who wants held all day long. I mean, I don’t begrudge him, at all, but it’s just hard. Plus I have no lap anymore. We made a little “bed” for him in the playroom so he could be right next to us. That lasted about six minutes. We managed, though. Poor little guy.

We’re chugging along with Little House in the Big Woods. Today I wrote some very simple sentences on sentence strips and then cut them apart and shuffled them. Katie Grace put them back in order. She was really good at it, too. We’re also working on an illustrated winter alphabet.

We also made warm snowmen today, with biscuit dough (yes, the bad Pillsbury kind) which we decorated with raisins and pretzels. Pretty yummy.

That was about it. Just another day in paradise.

    Hi Annette,
    I just came over to check out your blog after seeing a post on MDC…your blog is so nice, love the waldorfy picture even.

    You are doing a great thing by even trying to use Waldorf ideas in your home. I can tell by the love that comes through your posts that your kids respond to the energy you put into this, and you will reap the rewards for the rest of your lives. It is worth it, hard some days, but worth it.

    you are a great mom, keep up the great work!
