I need my non-mama space, somewhere eclectic not just for my art. Also, in focusing on heavier discussions and specifics, I tend to miss recording the smaller moments. I'm capturing some of them through joy pockets, but not enough detail.
I now want to hand over Holistic Mama to 100% parenting and home. My astrology, spiritual journey, food, art, creativity, photography, general musings, frivolous ponderings, design, film....... all over at my new place (if I've visited you recently I left you a trail *wink*).
As I made dinner and she sat playing with her magnetic letters, she recited the alphabet, the sing-song version (where in British English it ends with zed and not zee so doesn't rhyme as well)... about 70% correctly. I've never taught it to her. She's picked it up from various places.
I don't even want to teach her the alphabet. Firstly, she's only 3 and doesn't require it for a long time. Secondly, it's not my preferred method for teaching reading (sounds being superior to letter names).
But this is organic learning... doing it because she just picked it up.
I'll do joy pockets tomorrow, and a monthly review next week. Do Join me.
