Munari Mobile

I have been doing some reading about Montessori during the past year. I like a lot of the ideas and practices. I wish I would have known about it when I first started parenting but I am trying to incorperate some of the ideas. The Munari mobile is suppost to stimulate and develop infants vision and concentration. Clara and John both like watching Margaret watch herself in the mirror. I love seeing how she is drooling because she is so engaged.


He can recite Amilia Mixed the Mustard, Jabberwocky, Daddy Fell into the Pond, and A Peanut sat. He loves Margaret and kisses her 20 times a day. He loves to wrestle with Clara. He clears his dishes. He loves to shoot guns. He is kind and loving.

Ode to Spring by Walter R Brooks

O spring, O spring,
You wondering thing!
O spring, O spring, O spring!
O spring, O spring,
When the birdies sing
I feel like a king,
O spring!

More Margaret

I think the last two are kind of oppisites. Back, front. Asleep, awake. Cluttered, space.


My sister Lauren once crossed-stitched a little sampler for me that read "A Sister is a Special Friend." I have two sisters and they are both irreplaceable in my life. I feel fortunate that I was able to help Heavenly Father in giving the gift of a sister to my little girls.
