About Leandra Sweet
Leandra is a Wife, stay-at-home Mother of 3, Daughter, Sister, & Friend to lots of great people who fill her life. A private music instructor by trade, she took time off to raise her children in 2008, when her firstborn came into the world. In the four short years since becoming a Mom, ”The Whimsical Sweet” was born, along with several other from-home endeavors. Leandra is a natural-birthing, breastfeeding, baby-wearing, home-cooking, intactivist, homeschooling Mom who teaches music, knits, & creates all things fun while raising her children in a mainly-holistic environment. While her husband works, Leandra finds ways to live functionally on a single income & enjoys scoring a good deal on necessities for the family. On any given day, you will find her reading to her kids, encouraging them to play independently, or spending time with extended family who fortunately live nearby. Mostly, this Mama believes in balance and moderation. Anything that fits the bill works just fine.
