As a girl, I went through a Little House on the Prairie obsession. Okay, I might still have a soft spot for the Little House classics. I am pretty sure that most little girls still have that infatuation of Laura Ingalls Wilder. A pioneer girl, who lived so differently from us, but yet, was the same.
Tell me you never once dressed up or played Little House on the Prairie.
I used to, all the time, and since we also watched the Little House on the Prairie videos, my brother would be Albert Ingalls. It was my dream to one day own a bonnet and pioneer dress, but that never happened. I was good at pretending though…
My mom read my brother and I the all the books when I was younger. It was awesome to make lunch and take a blanket outside and listen to my mom read about the many adventures of the Ingalls family.
Don’t you agree? Like seriously, every homeschool family I have met has read Little House on the Prairie books and does activities with their children. It is as if all homeschoolers need to read them, or else you have failed your child in some way. (If you haven’t read the books, don’t feel bad!)

After listening to my read my brother and I the many stories of Laura’s childhood, I wanted to be like and do the things Laura used to do…although I would be fine not playing with a pigs bladder for a balloon.
If your child is in a “Laura Ingalls” moment in life, let them live and learn from it. I did, and I will hopefully do the same thing for my daughters when I have some…
