We are finding our groove this week. I have deep gratitude for my children’s school @waldorfschoolmoraine and all the fantastic efforts by the faculty. They keep bundling up ideas for the kids and also checking in via zoom. We have exciting projects all over the house from plants growing 🌿to wool get carded to quirky math problems, violins lying around 🎻 and now sewing PJs. 🧵
Thankfully they are coaching us parents along the way offering warm words of encouragement. I’m feeling more like I can handle this makeshift homeschooling thing! And my favorite part...the baking!
We took an early morning walk in the light drizzle surrounded by no one. The mood and the sky offer the same lonely vibe. A bit sad and grey all 6 feet away.
The post office is still open so you can still order and receive enough fire cider to keep you going through the extended social isolation time. What are YOU doing to boost your immune system? We drink a shot of this powerhouse daily. Snag yours today at the Dakota Natural Goods store in my profile link.
Baking allllllll the things while on lockdown. But I’m almost out of flour and there’s none on my store shelves! Baking reduces my stress level. The smells that fill the house, the calming nature of kneading bread and the delight of seeing how it turns out. 🥖🥖🥖Eating the fruits of our labor adds on a whole other level of happiness. What do you do to reduce stress in your house?
Day 1 homeschooling started with math:
1) built a chart wheel (thank you IKEA) and each kid has to spin 3 times and do those tasks.
2)stuck on the 8,000 monopoly prices we got from shopping at Shaw’s.
3) fighting and arguing began and it was recess the rest of the day.
is it 5 o’clock somewhere?
I’ve given a zillion speeches and workshops and I still get nervous. Practicing for my workshop tomorrow I’ll be giving to Lactation Consultants. The title of my talk is Chiropractic, Cranials and Tightened Tongues: a myofascial approach to nursing struggles. I always record myself and then watch it back without the sound on. You really can learn a lot about your body movements, mannerisms, talking with your hands and dumb facial expressions you make. I love it though. ❤️
are you an LC or IBCLC in the Boston area? Come say hi and introduce yourself tomorrow at the conference!
