Da quando è nato Oliver, ho “montessorizzato” 4 case stabili e almeno 12 nel nostro viaggio intorno al mondo: questa esperienza mi ha dato tantissimi spunti e una capacità incredibile… Read More
I didn’t write much about Bangkok during our stay there, but not because I had a struggling relationship with this city. Quite the opposite. You ask Alex, and he’ll tell you Bangkok definitely wasn’t his favorite place, but I genuinely liked it.
Up until now, Oliver didn’t move much in bed—or anywhere else. Sometimes we’d find him with his head where his feet should be or when his adventurous mood kicked in he’d roll out of bed and on the Bednest Mattress.
One morning, we found him in his montessori room like in the first picture above—using his bed as a pillow 😀
Today I’ll take you around our apartment to show you how we “montessorised” it: starting at 12 months, in fact, it’s not only about your kid’s bedroom, but also about all the other environments in the the house.
For the past 12 nights, Oliver went from waking up almost every hour to sleeping 12 hours a night and putting himself to sleep in the evening. What we did is something that I had sworn I’d never do: we let him cry it out (sort of, with a caring twist). And I recommend it.
Since I wrote about Oliver’s montessori bedroom all Ikea, many of you have asked me about the bed. Get ready for a trip to Ikea, because today I’m going to tell you (in as many details as possible) how we made it. It’s actually super easy.
When Oliver was 10 months old, along with other changes in our prepared environment (like our beloved reading corner), we decided it was time to give Oliver a big boy bed.
In this post I tell you what I like the best about each cloth nappy brand that I use.
The Dancers is the forth Montessori mobile that I made for Oliver and it’s also the last one: after this, we started with the series of the grasping and pulling mobiles.
Fantasy and imagination are not the same thing and because why prefer imagination to fantasy before 5-6 years old
L’altro giorno, leggendo un articolo di benessere, mi sono imbattuta in un curioso consiglio per la cura delle mani che mi ha fatto pensare. Ma si dice il palmo della mano o la palma della mano?
After three years of disposable nappies, we switched to cloth nappies and washable wipes for Emily. This is how I did it.
Lately so many mums have asked me where I bought Oliver’s shoes so today I’m writing a quick post unveiling the secret.
Woom 2 (3-4.5 years) is a light 14″ kid bike, well thought out in every detail.
This is Oliver’s first prepared environment, that stayed the same till he was 6 months old. If you’re taking the first steps into the Montessori philosophy, find out what the prepared environment is.
Some while ago I watched the season finale of HBO’s Girls Season 3. Hannah, whose greatest passion is to write, gets into Iowa Writer’s Workshop, at the same time as things go south with her boyfriend Adam. They split up and everybody thinks she’s going to be devastated. Instead, she goes home, looks at the admission letter from the Iowa University and smiles.
Quando Oliver ha perso interesse nelle giostrine Montessori visuali, gli ho fatto questo supporto per agganciare giochi che può poi portarsi alla bocca o tirare ed esplorare. Così ogni gioco diventa una giostrina Montessori!
