I enjoy popping over to read the thoughtful articles written at Mom is teaching. Good articles and pointers to other great websites and carnivals. Apart from the Parenting toddlers carnival mentioned here. Try out these Carnival of family life , Carnival of homeschooling and the current issue of Carnival of Stay-at-home-moms. So many great websites to visit and bookmark to watch again.
A new blog I stumbled upon yesterday was The Twinkies. An interesting perspective on toys and values. The Liberal Hippy, Sustainable living and toys. If you never really thought about your toys this article will gently persuade you to rethink and set yourself some limits.
Let’s face it . We all need a little time out and Parenting toddlers have a funny one for you here.
Another place for good articles and thought provoking reading is
The not quite crunchy parent .This one on childhood is well worth a read.
Well I’m sure once you’ve got through this little lot you’ll be excited to find more than a little bit of time to spend time playing and having fun with your kids.
