Well, I Am Raising Them To Be Themselves ...

One of my main goals in parenting is that my kids are free to discover, develop, and become who they were purposed and gifted to be.  I try to provide lots and lots of opportunities for them to explore their world and who they are.

Maybe I should provide just a little less opportunity.

Sophie was playing around with her whiteboard this morning as I was cleaning.  After a few moments of quiet, she brought this to show me:

Her very first written word.  Ever.  Sweet, huh?  Should I be worried?

Thankfully, I'm not the only one who has ever faced this - read about another mom's experience here.  Interestingly, another home schooler.  Coincidence?  I think not.  Those home school people are craaazy.

Case in point:

Xander just walked by me, butt naked except for a chic pair of black wedges he found in my closet.


  1. You can just tell she's 4! The infamous kid created knock-knock joke in our house that is sure to bring belly laughs: Knock Konck! Who's there? Poop!
