I found this article, Practical Life with Little Ones by Elizabeth Foss to be so encouraging! As the harried mother of a nearly three year old and a fifteen month old, I read this article and felt like I could work a little harder to do fun things with both of the children. My aim is going to be to try to be more fully present to the children during the day... I've printed this article and plan on re-reading it when I need a little boost!
Oh, and have you seen Amanda Soule's recent post on laying out an art project at night for the children to do upon waking? What an inspired idea! I'm off to set it up now!
