Natural Twin Home Birth Story

Natural Twin Home Birth Story

I pretty much decided immediately on a home birth with my twins once words like, c-section and epidural were thrown around as if they were handing out lollipops! Right from the start my twin pregnancy was different! Being a week late with my period, I had taken 3 tests that all said negative. Even though I was beyond emotional I was easily able to dismiss these signs due to stress because we were having our back yard wedding that week. One week after…

There’s times I dont like my kids

There’s times I dont like my kids

Shocking and vulnerable admission for sure but I bet you can relate! There have been moments/times I haven’t liked my kids.

 I must say, my heart grasped the spirit of unschooling philosophy long before my head fully understood what it meant. I wanted to jump in with both feet, desperate to make our home a better place. But my first question was “where do I start”? How the heck do you carry out a unschooling life and education after being so mainstream for so long? Everyone I asked said to just take it slow.

Unschooling is Relevant schooling

My Unscholing journey started when I was young. But not like you would expect! I thought it might be good to expound a little further on our unschooling journey. Not only as a family but as an individual. You can find my earlier post on unschooling here. When I was young, I use to say that I hated learning.  Adulthood hit and life got challenging.

Unschooling- absolutely crazy freedom

Unschooling- absolutely crazy freedom

Children will learn everything they need without being forced if given the freedom to explore! Shocking truth I know!! And totally “out of the box thinking”!
