I haven’t talked about it on here but I have been really interested in the Montessori-approach to play and education (aren’t they the same thing with a 14 month old?) I’ve never been a huge fan of large, loud plastic toys that have blinking lights and teach nothing and have preferred toys that are made […]
What a year! I feel like it was JUST October 2018 and I was sitting around waiting for a baby to come. Now, it’s been nearly a year of parenting and mothering and I feel like I have changed so much. I started my 29th year so insecure, emotional, and more exhausted than I have […]
