Here in the Miller home, there's one activity that can brighten up even the most dreary day (especially those cold winter days). That activity is tea time. Last Christmas, Mimi bought us a ladybug tea set that my children adore. You can fit maybe two tablespoons of tea in each cup, but that doesn't matter. My children simply HAVE to use those teeny tiny cups, saucers, and even the kettle and creamer. The kids thoroughly enjoy tea time -- refilling their cups nearly 20 times before we're through. So, the table and chairs (and children) are covered in wet by the time we're finished. But at least we had some fun, eh?
Here are a couple pictures from our tea time today:
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
