This isn’t the first time I’ve left a post to the last minute. Actually the very first #MySundayPhoto that I did was all done on the day. And that’s what this one is.
This photo was literally taken this morning. And my plan was to write this as Isabelle napped. Instead I’m writing this one handed with her in my left. She’s teething like crazy and still isn’t sleeping. Not that I mind, but she really could do with drifting off whilst I write this up. We’ll see how it goes.
I guess I’ve taken this picture this week as I’ve been thinking a lot about home educating Isabelle. So I opted to go with something that reflects that thinking.
I’ve always been quite a few steps ahead when it comes to having a baby. I first wanted to buy baby things in 2011. We had Isabelle in 2017. So it should come as no surprise that I’m trying to be equally prepared for when Isabelle is a growing child. And if we follow through on our plan to home educate her, then we’re going to need a lot of books to spark her interest snd hopefully help her learn.
I know this photo doesn’t show everything we have. But I didn’t want to literally post a full picture of books. That would be boring. I’m not saying this is much better, but I’ll leave that to you.
What we have here is a pretty diverse number of books on an array of topics. You have your standard fiction books: Peter Pan, Pinocchio, The Jungle Book and loads of others, I’m not going to bore you to sleep by listing them all. Shame I couldn’t do that with Isabelle. We aimed for ones that also have film versions as it might help her go on to read the book versions of other films.
Then we have the more educational stuff. Book on feelings, Disney books in French, random German story books, a bunch related to science and who knows what else. There are even more in the attic terms of educational ones.
Basically, what I’m trying to say, albeit in a boring, overemphasised manner, is that we’re preparing. We’re getting ready for the fun challenge of home educating our daughter. I want her to be able to explore whatever topics she feels drawn to. And the bigger this future library gets, the more she can discover about the world, and most importantly, herself.
In other news, she’s fallen asleep. YAY! This is literally the latest she has ever had her first nap. Is my writing that bad?
