The Joy Of Owning Beautiful & Educational Toys

4 years ago, I fell in love with the Montessori philosophy that children should be given beautiful, wooden, well-made toys. It resonated so well with my beliefs & it just made sense. Though 4 years later, realistically it is almost impossible to buy ONLY wooden toys for my boys. We gladly adopt hand-me-downs plastic & battery… Continue reading The Joy Of Owning Beautiful & Educational Toys

Happiness is … the smell of pancakes in the morning

I pictured my pancakes to turn out looking like a pancake photoshoot image. But again, I’m cooking with a 3 year old. Bubs suggested using yogurt to replace our usual honey.

Children are born with an innate love for all living things

A common Chafer beetle flew into our house & we commenced Operation Catch & Release. Initially, we (Hubs & I) suggested leaving it outside our doorstep.
