And it flows like a river/Flows like a river in my soul





Finn and I are working on bodies today. He made a cut out of his body and we talked about his body and some science and some body image and he was so open and you could almost feel his mind percolating the discussion. I think it is very important to begin this dialogue now about his personal self. Self concept work is crucial for children. I think tiny little lessons during the week like this can help build up a child's self esteem and knowledge base. Again, I freak out sometimes when I think of all that I have been entrusted with in having children. Do you have any special lessons you use with yr children? Are there any good books on this these topics? I am going to the library today! :)
In other news...I made a kick ass grocery/market bag out of a beloved old t-shirt yesterday. It rocks! I am going to make more!!!!

Hope this doesn't post twice -- blogger ate my comment! Ok, Tracy (tzt.blogspot.com) and I hooked up at the library this morning and I realized once we were there that I should have said something to you 'cuz I think I found your blog through a comment on hers! Since the writer group playdate doesn't seem to be a go, maybe we can just hook up sometime and then put the word out to Terreece and Gloria?

we too talk about our bodies often and in no uncertain terms. i want my girls to know and love their bodies, minds and souls - something my parents were not aware of teaching me when i was young. love the large body tracing!
