Ruby comes home singing.
In fact, she tells me that ‘singing is what we do all day mum‘
And this is one of the things we love about her Waldorf preschool.
As they knead the bread, they sing. As they play, they sing.
And during circle time, they sing and they sing.
And on her days at home with me, she breaks into song. With little movements and actions. And such joy!
It is lovely to see these glimpses of what her days at her Waldorf preschool are like.
She sings songs that welcome the day. She sings to give thanks for the meals she enjoys.
There are songs for going outside to play. There are songs for tidying up.
And they sing to say goodbye.
And as I listen, I realise, at home we sing through our day too.
Sometimes made up songs, sometimes songs we learnt at playgroup.
And now, songs Ruby teaches me.
