First child: "Refined sugar shall not touch her lips! Until age two at the earliest! Possibly age three! Nothing but natural sweeteners for my daughter: bring on the homemade fruit leather and rubbery whole wheat muffins sweetened with apple juice!" Fifth child: "Does my widdle snookie-wookie want a taste of yummy yummy marshmallow fluff? Mmm, she likes it! Here, have a chocolate-chip muffin!"
The posts on these pages originally appeared at The Lilting House, my ClubMom blog about home education, fun learning resources, and special needs children.
When I decided it was time to wrap up my work at ClubMom, I moved all the Lilting House posts and comments to this archive. Comments are still open, so feel free to chime in on any post that interests you. I love to hear what my readers have to say!
These days I am doing all my new posting (including on many Lilting House topics) at my primary blog, Here in the Bonny Glen. There you will find posts about my books, other people's books, my family, home education, and many other topics.
