Hi, my family just moved to our off grid homestead with a 2 and 1 year old. It's wonderful, chaotic and beautiful. We are all living in a one room cabin and I (mom) am doing laundry the old fashioned way. I've got a couple funny things to say about it, and I'd love it if people added their little bits of humor as well.
Things you DON'T say when you live in a one room cabin with kids:
Go to your room
Can you talk louder?
Things you DON'T say when you do laundry for kids off grid:
This dinner would be great with turmeric
Now is a great time to potty train
Looking forward to hearing from other moms and dads with young ones
I can totally relate! With 3 and a half kids all under 5 in a small house we realized a few things pretty quickly.
Bunk bed side guards are priceless.
As long as it's "somewhat" light outside there's never a bad time to go outside. The middle guy likes to wake up with the sun so he helps me with the animal chores first thing.
A little rain used to keep us inside with the first one, now it's fun to sit under a tree and listen to the rain.
Winter is tough.
I have a peeing outside story that involves a 2 year old, a church picnic, and a few hundred people but that's for another time!
