It's a new year and a goal was to start writing on my blog. It's only January 19th, so considering another goal was to not be too hard on myself -- I'm off to a great start.
I am a mother of one little girl (18 months) and want to share my new experiences of being a parent in the world we live in today. I am a socially-conscious, environmentally friendly, hard working play-at-home mom.
I have a degree in education and enough babysitting references to make up a small village, but no single piece of paper or person could have prepared me for having my own child. I knew I was capable, but had no idea of the job description. I knew having a child would be a new set of challenges, but had no idea how unbelievably hard this can be at times. I knew I would fall in love immediately, but had no idea I had a whole reservoir of love that I never even tapped into before.
I thought my life would become a hybrid of the old me and the new me, but in reality, it all feels pretty darn foreign. Amazing, but all new to me. So I wanted to share what I have learned so far. I've learned about starting all over and making new friends, making new food, making a ton more garbage in diapers and plastic, making some new things, making new discoveries (and even opinions, too).
Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for new updates coming soon.
