N.O.F

I’ve decided that Jasper is my NOF – my number one fan. All this little guy wants is his mama, all the time. He sleeps with me, crafts with me..basically does everything with me. Gosh, I love the sling. Even as I type he is here sleeping in my arms. This afternoon he and I […]

My Jasper is a mama’s boy, too. Please don’t tell me it ends! He’s so different than his sister, who is also a lovey dovey, but she’s never needed me in quite as obsessive a way…

this is so neat. i never thought about autistic children having a need to be grounded. very interesting. it makes total sense. and the preggo tee. how cute. i wore one that had the female gender sign on it at the belly…so everyone new it was a girl. i will keep this in mind for next time………….a looooong time from now! and enjoy your little munchkin. they are sooo snuggly…but they groen too darn fast.

It is so obsessive, very cute, but it’s what I like to call ‘attachment parenting – mega’

Thanks Nathalie :) I just finished my first one and gave it to the kindercottage teacher (ben’s teacher) at our Waldorf school today. I can’t wait to hear her reaction to it and how the children responded to it.

I used to work with an autistic child and children with behavioral struggles – they would have loved these, I think. I wonder if it would also help autistic children to connect that kind of grounding comfort to a very human, relational object rather than simply a weighted rectangle? I’ve also heard of people using these for children transitioning out of a family bed – you can use something like field corn or flax that can heat up in the microwave so that it’s a warm, weighted baby.

long time no write….

I’m so sorry that it’s been a while since I wrote. Baby J has deemed it party time from 7pm until 11pm, generally when I get to do emailing/blogging. He’s just about crawling now – so cute. I think that this new found almost mobility excites him so much that he has a hard time […]

Spaces

  I love when people post pictures of their work spaces so here is mine. It’s changed a bit since then, it’s always changing. Julie has quite the magical decorating ‘touch’ and rearranges things all the time. I’ll pop out to pick up Ben from Kindercottage and come back to my furniture all rearranged and […]

Your work space looks so nice! Look at all those dolls all lined up & ready to go…

Congrats on making it into Canadian Family magazine – I saw the pictures on Flickr, well done!

oh how i envy your work space. it certainly doesn’t look like the basement. i feel like i work in a phone booth, my space is so small.

The most beautiful quilt..ever!!

Thanks Ella, I find though, the more space you have the more you tend to ‘spread out’. I’ve put it out there that the next place we get has a little cottage or something that I can work out of.. so there is a bit of seperation. I find that I’m down here all the time, not that that is a bad thing, but sometimes I do want to seperate it..know what I mean?
