A Blog Worth Reading

It has been forever since any of our families have sent pictures so I thought I'd redirect you to another wonderful blog.  It is called A Montessori Home and is written by Cathy -another Montessori Teacher and parent.  In the blog, Cathy answers many of the questions that come up when raising a child within the Montessori philosophy. 
Give it a read.  I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do.


  1. Thank you so much for the link to my blog, Cynthia! :)

  2. Hi Cynthia,

    Thanks for sharing your blog. I'm pregnant with my first child and would like to use the montessori principals. it's nice to see a working example.

    I have a few questions if you don't mind helping me?

    1. I noticed that you have skirting boards (base boards) and bookshelves etc. I have the same and I'm in a rented house so can't change it. I'm worried that I wont be able to get the furniture against the wall and secure it. Do you have yours secured to the wall? Is it safe? (am I worrying over something unnecessarily?)

    2. The bed that you have on the floor, is it just a normal mattress? Are there any hygiene concerns about having a bed on the floor? I have carpet as you do, even if I vacuum regularly I imagine it will get dusty?

    Thanks for your advice,
