This little boy sure has my heart.
After kind-of a rough few days--
thinking about Diego,
today was just what I needed.
Dashiell took a long nap,
and he’s been smiles ever since.
We’ve been cuddling, playing,
and just being.
His favorites over the past month:
looking at books (chewing on them, eek!)
water play (of course)
playing with cars
playing with musical instruments
animals (smothering them)
watching the bunny-rabbits in our neighbor's yard
and . . .
I tend to kiss and hug him a lot, a lot, a lot.
Even more-so lately,
and he has started to give me the occasional kiss,
which melts this mama’s heart, of course.
Cecily was mad because he hadn’t given her a kiss yet.
They enjoy playing together.
As does Sylvan.
Of course, there are always times when the older kids don’t want Dashiell to mess with their stuff.
But, overall, they all enjoy each other’s company quite well.
One of the benefits of unschooling=closer sibling relationships.
