Montessori or Fascism

Montessori defined: Developed child education advocating self-expression and spontaneity. Each child learns at their own pace guided by the technique promoting individual initiative and creativity rather than group activity.

Fascism defined: A philosophy or system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong, centralized government usually headed by a dictator, and often a policy of belligerent nationalism. Fascism is an authoritarian ideology that considers individual and other societal interests inferior to the needs of the state.

How long has it been?

I haven't posted for so long, I don't remember how. In fact, I don't think I've ever done this. I'm pretty sure Bean (the only one reading this Hi Bean!) was the one who typed my first post. He was very encouraging that everyone in the family needed their own blog. I think Zac posted a few times but other things won out when he has time to do things like this. Once I post this, I think I'll be tied with him.

Beckett is sick. He has a fever, runny nose, and from what I've been told, green poop. I haven't witnessed the poop yet but I believe it to be true. He's very mad, probably thinking I'm responsible for him not feeling well and if I would just make him feel better, he'd like me again. I gave him Tylenol and put him down for a nap. Think good thoughts for me. Jac wants to play Uno. He has approximately 187 cards spread over the dining room table. We're playing by the dealers rules. Should be fun.
