My current interest is reading up on Waldorf Education. I am off to the library to get "You are your child's first teacher". Seeing all the pictures of the waldorf-esque playrooms out there, I became inspired to purge more of our plastic toys. They are mostly gifts so I have felt bad with giving them away. Pookie does have a few that are well used and loved. For example she just adored her Little People Farm set, so we will keep that, but much of the other junk is doing. I am just hoping my husband doesn't intervene. He has a hard time parting with things... especially gifts.
I really want to clear out the basement more so that we can convert the space under the stairs into a little hideaway for Pookie. I was hoping it would be done for her second birthday. However first my lovely husband has to deal with his piles of junk (he gets so mad when I refer to it as that).
Now Pookie is on the mend I am looking forward to once again getting back to our routine we had been building. I want to create a set time we do arts & crafts on Mon, Wed & Fri, and another set time for additional reading. I can't wait for the weather to get nice and to be able to happily go outside everyday. I just can't get myself to do it in the winter... espcially on nasty cold, muddy, snowy days like today.
