Spiritual tools for our little ones

It’s been a good while.  Since birthing I’ve been crazy busy. Co-sleeping, cloth diapering, cooking, reading  (to baby girl that is) and more. A few weeks back I crafted our baby girl’s food blessing. Short, simple, original. As a non-religious spiritual family prayer is oh-so- important to us.   What tools do you incorporate to reinforce your values to your young ones? Perhaps its prayer, libations,  yoga, meditation, inspirational/meditation cards, Brer Rabbit and Anansi stories? Do tell.

Teaching our babies to swim

Yrs ago I read that it’s ideal for our children to learn to swim between 6 mths and 2 yrs old or so. After all we  “swim” for 10 months inside our mamas.
