A wise man said to me, “How will the children appreciate the environment, how will they appreciate nature if they never dance in the rain or sleep in the sun, if they are always corralled to ‘go outside’ under limits and rules? Children need to be at one with nature if we expect them to have a connection to our world.” I couldn’t agree with him more. I am seeing that my children have a secret friend in nature and although she was always speaking to me, it is only now that I am listening to her and understanding her language. I am so grateful that my children opened my eyes and my ears and for my not-so-silent friend in our unschooling journey. We do dirt, we do wild and we do free and there is no other way I would rather it be.

My boyfriend & I usually have sex on the floor behind his bed so when you walk in you can only see the bed. And we were having sex one day & I was on top and his mom walks in and she can't see him but she can see me with my shirt on, and she's asking me where he is and I'm sitting on his dick & he's on the bottom trying not to laugh and moving around to make me make faces. And we were talking for like 15 minutes while I was sitting on his dick and having pleasant talk with his mom. NEVER AGAIN.
