Family life, Links


There was a bit of an urban legend about a group of friends in a city I used to live in, who’d call a cab company and every time, when asked where they were headed, reply “Elsewhere,” and hang up. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but that’s where we’re headed today: elsewhere!

First up, some older posts of mine were shared on the amazingly comprehensive blog Confessions of a Montessori Mom:

And more recently, I’ve been writing some brand new, never-before-seen posts for the #30daystoMontessori challenge, over at Study-At-Home Mama.

  • Getting out the door: why does it seem like the simplest things become suddenly complicated with a toddler in the house?
  • Creating independence while diapering. The whole idea behind the #30daystoMontessori project is to make everyday moments just a little bit more Montessori — that is, respectful, simple, independent. Parents of babies and young toddlers can have those moments many times a day!

As more are published on Study-At-Home Mama, I’ll be sure to update here, but I really recommend following the daily prompts for the #30daystoMotnessori challenge. Inspiring stuff!

I’m working on some posts, as well as a bigger project that’s taken up a lot of my time lately, but this week I’m just thrilled to share that this week Jasper had his first morning at a sweet Montessori playgroup. He loved it, and already today was more apt to bring out a work mat than before. And I’m so glad to have such a kind and respectful guide in his life.
