I have two babies. One has 2 legs and 2 arms and the other you’re staring at. My blog is my little place on the internet where our life is chronicled. My ups and downs of mommy-hood can be found right here at this web address.
But why on earth do I choose to lay it all out on the table? I’ll admit it’s a touch embarrassing when my real life friends ask me about something from my blog. I honestly forget that anyone even reads what I write.
When I was pregnant I spent my days researching. I visited literally thousands of blogs while trying to narrow down what car seat I wanted, what stroller would suit our lives best, and how the heck to start cloth diapering. I was so fortunate to have all my questions answered and then some. Through these blogs I discovered a whole other world of parenting. A world where you could ask questions and not just accept the norm when it comes to raising your kids.
Now that I’m deep in the trenches of motherhood, I figure I’ve learned a few things that I can share with moms to be. No, I certainly don’t fancy myself an expert. Not one bit! But each and every day I am learning news tricks of the trade that I want to pass on to other mothers and care givers. It wouldn’t be fair to hoard all the knowledge, now would it?
It’s my turn to give back to the blog world that was there for me when I needed it most and I know that same blog world will be there in days, months, and years to come when I run into new challenges and have more questions. Once again I will turn to some wise blogging mothers who have been there before me.
I feel I owe a little something something to the moms who’ll come after me. It’s as if I’ve taken something and now it’s my turn to replace it. Those women googling parenting tips, nursery ideas, & cloth diaper how-tos? I was you and I’ve got your back! My goal is to answer some of your pressing questions, give you some new ideas, and maybe even get you re-thinking some aspects of parenthood.
I have two babies. One keeps me up all night and the other is my alarm clock. Can you guess which is which?
PS: I’ll be sharing this post on these fabulous blogs!
