I have just started a Simplicity Parenting workshop and it has already helped me effect change in our home.
The Munchkin's room was in desperate need of a declutter (the rest of the house is still in the process!) and on Friday I got into it and sorted it out, storing, throwing and donating a few bags of "stuff"and reducing it down to the basics, and finding floor space on the process. My concepts were loosely based on Waldorf principles, the ideas in Simplicity Parenting and what felt right for us.
I still have her wardrobe to do. For now it is shrouded in pink and purple pashminas' which makes it seem visually much more restful.
It is really quite peaceful in there now, and finally a place to play, relax and dream...
Today I spotted her listening to an audio version of Jill Tomlinson's "The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up". Mission accomplished I would say!
Now on to the "stuff" I dumped in our bedroom while I was sorting the sewing room...
