Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why The Baby Book by Dr. Sears changed my life. It allowed me to see that there were many ways to do things out there and maybe just doing whatever the generation before you did, isn't the answer! It lead me to attachment parenting, which lead me to crunchy mama's, which lead me to homeschooling, which lead me to unschooling, which lead me to living a joyful life and following our passions.
What Bugs Me scare tactics, Cruelty To Animals, people disrespecting children, intolerance  
Passions new things, spirituality, nature, LIFE!!!, learning, children, books, animals  
Inspirations love, my children, animals, friends, trees

Quotation There are soo soo many quotes that I love. Here is one I found at the moment..it's more like a few paragraphs than a short quote, lol.


The Greatest Gift To Give To A Child

Your children came forth pure and eager and knowing that all is well, to try to remind those who have come before them of something that they have forgotten. And so, that's why the generation gap will always be there. These bright young beings come forth feeling invincible, and their parents, who are not feeling so invincible, spend most of their life, teaching them to feel less and less invincible. And we say, how backwards is that? You're wanting your children to be empowered. Self-empowered. That is the greatest gift that a parent can give to a child!

The most effective parent is the one that gives birth and gets out of the way! Always there, lovingly, to answer anything that is asked, certainly, but not with that domineering, "Well I've lived, and I've had lots of experiences, and this and this and this has happened, and this is how it is, and the sooner you come to understand how it is, the better you'll get along in this world..." And your child says, "That's how it is for you, but that's not how it is for me." And you say, "Oh, well, you haven't had the experience that I have had." And your child is saying, "But you just have your own narrow, warped perspective, Mother. And your perspective doesn't have anything to do with me!"

You want your child to have a glorious experience, so just remember that for your child to live a glorious experience, he must be connected to Source Energy. So anything that you do that encourages that connection, is helping. Anything that you do that discourages it -- is not. ~~Abraham-Hicks
