I have been blessed with an extraordinary daughter, Sara, who has become an adult that I can’t imagine being prouder of. She is the original inspiration for my playgroups for two-year-olds, which I’ve been doing continuously since 1984.
The little by little logo is a drawing I did of my 28 year-old female turtle, Fast Food, named in 1990 by Sara, who is also 28. Besides being a great playgroup mascot, she is a wonderful symbol of how, day by day, we learn new ways to love our children, and ourselves in the process.
It’s been both a privilege and a gift to be an important part of the lives of these very young people and their families. My hope is, that by sharing my experiences, I help families understand and appreciate their children in a different light.
