The Wilder Child blog is a great community curated by a Mom who has two young children. Her passion is ‘wilding’ and working on getting her family closer to nature. Here’s a short preview of her most recent post, and definitely check out her site.
Right now my husband and I are in the thick of raising our two little Wildlings, both are under five years old. These early years have been filled with joy, but they haven’t been the easiest in a lot of ways. So many of you out there are in the same position, and it seems like everyone I talk to is missing the village. Sadly we probably won’t get back to that level of community in our life time, but that doesn’t mean we are completely alone.
These past few weeks spent watching my kids play in the summer light, a thought has slowly taken shape in my heart and profoundly shifted my experience as their mother. Nature is their third parent.
