Thanks Mummyfox! That was helpful! I have tried THM, and I liked it, but I need to adjust it to make it work for me I think. I was using a lot of nut flours which puffed me up, and the xylitol really seemed to make me crave more sweets. But I think it may be worth giving it another go. I have tried to go more of an exclusive whole foods approach, but inevitably I get behind because it requires so much prep, and then I find myself without a lot of options. (Husband has no desire to eat this way, so I have to cook twice, also.). I liked all you had to say about the homeschooling aspect! I very much love the Charlotte Mason sort of outlook, but ended up doing Abeka this year, needing some kind of example to follow. But I’m getting more confident now, and I think I will follow your advice and relax! We are struggling deeply right now with obedience, and I think that is the heart of the matter. I am doing this alone for the most part, with little back up from Dad. I feel like I’m just waking up to this problem, and now it seems so large, it seems impossible. Lord forgive me for my failure in this area! I am completely lost! I was raised with few boundaries, little work, and very spoiled. I know I don’t want that for my little ones! It has made my adult life a struggle, when I could have been doing so much more at this stage in my life, I am still learning the basics. Thanks for listening! :).
