Boogie on women

Image : The Graphics Fairy
I am writing an essay on Feminism and motherhood/ housewifery and have been reading a lot of interesting things about the subject. This sparked me to ask Boogie what he thought of women.

Me: Boogie what do you think of women?
Boogie: They are nice. And they ride bicycles naked.
(he is referring to the Queen video clip we watched)
Me: Do I ride my bicycle naked?
Boogie: No but your a lady.
Me: Is there a difference between women and ladies?
Boogie: Yeah women ride bikes naked and ladies wear clothes.

I'm not sure what to think of this!

Today was a long day with a very grumpy boy. Every question I asked Melon his response was “nooo”. He almost got ran over by a car this morning outside school as he ran off (and boy does he run quickly!). In an effort to find the good things in this difficult day I have made a quick list of things that I am grateful happened today:
 Stories with Melon.
 Singalongs with everyone.
 Food- cooked with love.
 Sharp pencils.
 Not having to do the dishes

Small things, I know, but sometimes you have to keep your eyes firmly on whatever good things you can find, no matter the size.

I have been searching every Montessori blog I can find trying to get ideas to do with Little One. The earliest age I found posts on was 15 months. For a while there I was getting frustrated with the lack of ideas from myself or anyone else. But, alas, the brain has begun working slightly and this is what we ended up doing at 13 months old.

Cleaning the barn. Did I ever mention I love Practical Life activities.

Halloween Fun

We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia really so the boys had no clue. I imagine that they think this is Mum and Dad just getting there crazy out. It was fun and we should do it more often!

Morning tea

I have developed a great little set up in which The Boogie prepares morning tea for himself and his brother! He is just so proud of himself! Yay for Practical Life exercises!
