Our Montessori Playroom Tour

Happy Wednesday BR family! Today I thought I would share something really close to my heart, with you! Edward and I have decided to try and raise Elle using the Montessori method. The teaching style really appeals to us as a family and I couldn’t recommend it more. I don’t intended to go deeply into the principles of Montessori, on this blog, because I am not an expert. I am only a mom trying her best to make it happen at home haha. Every now and then I would love to share Montessori DIYs and play exercises that Elle does! Hopefully you guys will enjoy some of that. β˜ΊοΈπŸ’– Anyways – into the tour!

Today At A Glance

Today is a dark NH day. It seems like it’s warmed up a little because a dark fog has filled the streets of my city. The piles of snow are melting and turning the streets a beautiful black. The trees are empty and dark. The spaces where their leaves once were – are now filled with the misty fog. Elle and I are 3 stories up above it all… I am at my desk talking to you – while she is warm and sleeping in the room over.

Right now Elle is taking her nap, there is a pumpkin pie in the oven, and I’ve decided to share our secrets to surviving the Holidays with a 6-12-month-old baby! Now that we have a schedule in place it can be scary to spend a lot of time away from home. Not to mention that most of the time grandma’s house isn’t baby proofed. So, here is what we do/use to survive upwards of 6 hours at someone else’s home.
