Kristie, I just posted about this, too! It just amazes me how this self-awareness blossoms. It's pretty cool to have two daughters at different stages to see that. While it's kind of sad to witness the fairy magic loosening, I know that it's necessary for the development of critical thinking, and that, later on, when our kids are all grown up, they'll rediscover that connection to the nature spirits-just like we did.
This post is such a great way of showing the differences between the 10 and 14 years. My daughter just turned 10, so I can relate! I'm off to check out Waldorf 101...
Dear Jenell, Yes! I so agree. It is bittersweet :) And I am sure you can relate that one of the most awesome feelings as a mom is to see your child become independent even if it does mean losing some of that fairy magic. Thank you for commenting Jennifer! I always look forward to your visits to the BLOG :)Love, Kristie
Have a beautiful day, Kristie!
What a touching post, Kristie. Our babies growing up is so bittersweet. I always remind myself that they won't be needing me forever when I have to get up in the middle of the night every night because Elena comes into our room. I try to find the joy, though I admit that sometimes I am grumpy and quiet...but, I still tell them I'll be rocking them in the rocking chair at age 18 :) and someday, they'll even be rocking me!And btw, I really enjoyed the Waldorf 101 video. It was really helpful to hear and I am planning on listening to it every year at the start of the next "grade" to remind myself not to rush them and of the appropriate stages. Thanks for all you do, lady! You're SO appreciated :)
