… deployments, PCSing and holding down the homefront– It’s a Sailor’s Wife
I’m a small-town woman who fell in love with a Navy man while he was

we were married… just in time for him to return to sea duty in the
great state of Washington. Without me.

We are a delight driven, nature loving, story telling, soup slurping, bread kneading, paint splashing, song singing, wool felting, anti consumerist, fair trading, free cycling, skill gathering, beeswax buzzing, costume wearing, ball kicking, book worming, seed planting, guitar strumming, game gaming, musical jamming, always making family of seven.
Wild Parenting is a decision to live life awake and aware, allowing our children to find their own voices and follow their own paths. Being wild is not about subscribing to a particular parenting dogma.

Are you hoping for it, pleading it not to come, or perhaps just wondering the possibilities. Words are a funny medium that can be easily mistaken and misunderstood. Not just in a text based form such as this but in person as well. What sounds sharp and biting to one person may be taken as playful to another.
I was raised in a traditional family with a working father and stay-at-home mother. No matter what the evening had in store, a home-cooked meal enjoyed together around the table was always a priority.
