An Active Participant in her Daily Life

As my daughter’s first birthday approaches–tomorrow :)– I relish in the delightful year we’ve had together. Tomorrow we will celebrate with ours dearest and reflect on our daughter’s growth and love and light (and our growth as parents).  She’s taught us so much, mainly to listen to her and what she needs and be there for her. We have learned that she is happiest being an active participant in her everyday routine. My favorite author on this philosophy-of treating children as autonomous human beings deserving of the utmost respect-is Janet Lansbury. I am grateful for what I’ve learned from her work in this first year of mothering.

With my daughter’s first birthday comes out next visit to the doctor’s office and as nervous as I am, I plan to make my daughter as secure as she possibly can be by walking her through exactly what’s going to happen at her next appointment. Here’s a link to the article by Lansbury. I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do ❤️
