What I’ve been up to lately…

It’s gotten a little quiet here, hasn’t it? Yes, it has. We have had some major changes in our family and we are still adjusting so I have to set priorities. Don’t worry, everything is fine!

And I just want to let you know what I’m thinking about.

In the past I have been focusing on unschooling mainly. However, unschooling is something that just doesn’t work for us. Not because of us – we sure love it! But because of the country we’re living in. Unschooling is illegal over here. We have to either public or private school our kids. There is no alternative whatsoever.

I hate that thought and I will ponder about unschooling and homeschooling and home education and educational freedom some more, I promise. But I feel I want to focus more on Catholic Attachment Parenting in the future.

How does that sound?

There are some great Catholic Attachment Parenting blogs out there and I think this blog can be part of this community. How do you feel?

So what am I planning to do?

I want to share some thoughts about why Attachment Parenting is Catholic – for me. What that means. What we can learn from our faith for our parenting journey. How we can parent our kids in gentle and loving way – not just infants, but also toddlers, kids and even teens.

I want to share some thoughts on how we can build strong families and why that is important. I want to share so many thoughts!

Are you excited? I know I am!

But let’s take it slow, because I need to focus on my family right now. But what about you? Are there topics, questions, ideas you want to read about here at Living a Catholic Fairy Tale? What’s on your mind? Just let me know!

Two under two – Blogging

Are you curious how blogging with two kids under two works? Does it work at all?

Well, obviously it does. Or at least: Most times it does.

Like we pointed out in one earlier post you need both a lot of structure and flexibility to get anything done. There are really tons of things that need to be done! Cooking, laundry, cleaning, putting away things, grocery shopping – you name it. And not to forget playing, singing, cuddling, book reading, painting, crafting – let’s just say Mom is never bored in our family!

So how do you schedule all that plus blogging?

Actually Mom basically uses the time when both kids are asleep to blog. It strongly depends on how long both little ones nap how much she can get done. Since Mom really loves to write, she can write a lot in just a very short amount of time. Somehow it works and most time it isn’t even that hard.
