Connection through tone… quick read reminder

Connection through tone… quick read reminder

GAWD… must I really do the high pitch baby voice??!! We all do it. You know the voice. The voice that inevitably comes out of our mouth when we talk to a cute, chubby little baby!! Its like something takes over our vocal cords and we just can not help ourselves. During my “breaking free” from traditional parenting and focusing more on connection; I discovered that if I raised my voice an octave higher, my kids would respond worlds better!…

There’s SNOW!!….. In the house???

There’s SNOW!!….. In the house???

Its been a very long winter. The sun has graced us a little more lately… yesterday was such a day! Must Be Apart of it!! Plans were quickly made for a play date in the afternoon at the park. My kitchen was in much need of some love, but that sun… that glorious sun! Screw the chores! Dressed the twins and headed outside. Sitting in the slightly damp grass, my babies surveyed the land. They quickly spotted the biggest, muddiest…

Dear spectator … a letter to non-unschoolers

Dear spectator … a letter to non-unschoolers

Dear you, I understand our lives look different. I know our way of schooling and learning are not conventional nor does our life follow the norms of society. We know you care and wish to see our growing family thrive. Please know that we recognise and genuinely appreciate your concern! But I also want to let you know that I have not journeyed this decision by easy roads. I have not chosen a life of going against social norms just…

Cry it out…things every mom should know before doing it

Cry it out…things every mom should know before doing it

“It was a simple needs-met symbiosis that required a total suspension of ideas of “what should be happening” and an embracing of what was actually going on in that moment.” ∼Claire Niala *This is a copy. I found that people did not like the title or picture of my post on “What cry it out is actually doing to your baby”. This article is NOT only about cry it out but it explores the needs of babies and what happens when…

Be Original-Don’t Die a Copy

Be Original-Don’t Die a Copy

Time to wake up! I posted this Meme to my Facebook page not to long ago. After doing so, I was struck even more so of how true I felt this was…. at least for me and in my life.  I like to say that I had a dream that was critical to awakening me to the deadly reality of my life. A little back story  I was in an abusive marriage and had totally lost myself in my “Christian…

Cry It Out-What it’s Doing to your Baby

“It was a simple needs-met symbiosis that required a total suspension of ideas of “what should be happening” and an embracing of what was actually going on in that moment.” ∼Claire Niala Sleep training is a hot topic here in the Western World. I even see Facebook ads popping up encouraging parents to take their specialized course on how to make their baby sleep through the night. I get the appeal, we love our sleep. When I was a first…

Breastfeeding tips you wont normally hear

Breastfeeding tips you wont normally hear

  “I am the roots to your growing tree. For so many months, I’ve been all you need. A sapling so weak will one day be strong. I will help you sweet baby, because I am your mom.”  *unknown I do not usually follow the trends that happen on Facebook. However, these breast-feeding pictures are just to beautiful to pass on! I’m also in agreement with the breastfeeding movement. Social norms tell us that breastfeeding our babies is almost a…

My 5 births-Comparing 4 hospital methods to Homebirth

My 5 births-Comparing 4 hospital methods to Homebirth

I’ve heard many a woman say that they had a “wonderful hospital birth”. I use to say the same thing in fact. However, I had no idea what I was missing out on till I had a home birth. My hope in writing this is to challenge your thinking in what is “normal” and natural.  Having gone through five distinctly different births, I wanted to share each one and how it affected me and my babies. Inducement and C-Section…. First…
