I'm also finishing my BS in Elementary and Special Education. I'm a Montessori, Waldorf and Attachment Parenting believer. We are a homeschooling family that likes to pick up what works for us and leave behind what doesn't. And, occasionally I like to pretend I have it all together. :)

Favorite Books I'd like to say my most favorite book is something very high brow and educational, but really...I'm surrounded by kids all day and the last thing I want to veg out with is kid related. So, I choose an educational book that's as faaaaaar away from that as I can and enjoy a WHOLE lotta yummyness that is Laurell K. Hamilton with Anita Blake & Meredith Grey series (World's Best Author! and if men could be created on earth she should be in charge. Hello Darkness, Frost, Jean Claude, Richard, Asher & Rhys!). Kim Harrison is also a close fav and Jinks makes me want to go fairy. When I'm baby itchin' go for one of the birth goddess. I love Hearts & Hands, When Survivors Give Birth, and Ina May Gaskins books. When I've read through Laurell and Kim's newest books I will pick up some great reads by Maria Montessori and Waldorf stuff.

You're trapped in a well with a goat and a slinky. Describe how you will escape.

Hook the slinky to the goats horns & my ankle. Give the goat a heave ho & use the slinky/rope to pull myself out! :)
