Our Children


“Your children are not your children, they are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself… their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them but seek not to make them like you, for life goes not backwards nor tarries with yesterday.”      
-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Sorry for the crickets over here… sorry now, and sorry in advance. I have struggled to keep up with my own blog while working on my boys’ Montessori school blog and their bi-annual newsletter and just life. It is so awesome and amazing to be part of that community, though, so really it is all positive. I just won’t be posting as frequently here.

If there is anything you’re missing, though, be sure to let me know in the comments section and I’ll do my best to work on some personal posts. I don’t want to completely throw in the towel yet!

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Will miss you but totally get it. I like all your posts, primarily those related to child-raising philosophy, literature, art, and fashion :-). I also like seeing your house projects/purchases. But I’d read whatever you posted about!

  2. Please, dear Lauren, please don’t give up your blog. I totally understand that time is short and your work and family are much more important but I cherish your writing and photography a lot, so please keep it up, no matter how infrequently it will be. Have a lovely week. Best wishes from Germany.

    1. Oh, I won’t give it up, Meike! I did not intend to send that message! I just have to get a good chunk of time to work on in; unfortunately other things must come first. I’ll be back next week! 🙂 And thank you for your kind words.

  3. You get to write your own schedule, so don’t sweat it. I used to, but I don’t now. I write when I can, but frequently the other parts of my life have to take precedence.

    We had a reading of Kahlil Gibran’s poetry at our wedding. I love it, and love this excerpt as well.

    (And what IS that green goop?)

    1. Ha, the green goop is “Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty,” which they boys have been obsessed with for the past few months. Basically a glorified silly putty, but with the ability to add color, shimmer, and other features!

  4. Hi Lauren — Hope you manage all the juggling with time. I love all your posts, but if I had to choose…anything with your home, cooking, and raising children. xo!
