Babysitting or sit on baby?
A young friend at church who loves babies (she herself is still a babe, being around 18 months) was completely enthralled with Annaliese. She didn't even want to tear herself away to do her favorite activity--craft. I jokily asked this little girl if she would like to babysit someday. She said yes and tried to sit on the baby. She looked quite perplexed when her mother plunked her in her lap and we mothers shared a hearty laugh.
I'm a wife, mother and writer trying to find balance in all my roles. I work at home with my kids, meaning I fit my freelance editing and writing projects around my kids. I've chosen to homeschool my oldest son in kindergarten this year, learning loads about education along the way. I'm passionate about books, so you'll see lots of discussion about them. And, of course, I'm quite passionate about my family so you'll see even more about my hubby, two boys and little girl.
My husband asked me why I named my blog what I did. Aside from, "Why not?" I choose The House at My Corner because my childhood nickname was Pooh and I'm a fan of that famed bear of little brain. Since A. A. Milne so nicely coined The House at Pooh Corner already, I tweaked it to fit me.
Education is not the filling of a bucket but the lighting of a fire. --William Butler Yeats
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. --Albert Einstein
