Throughout our first year of parenting my husband, Bo, and I discovered some truths, lots of perspective, and some pretty cool tricks. We don’t plan to have another baby for a few more years, and while I hope the perspective sticks with me, I realize that I’ll probably forget about those tricks by the next time we’re doing the whole newborn-toddler thing. I’d rather not have to re-learn everything. I thought I might keep a notebook with some of these things written down, but if you know me, you know I don’t like clutter. If it can be electronic, that’s the way it will be! And if I’m going to take the time to write it all down, I might as well share it, right?
I will say that these are not all my ideas, but some are! What you will find throughout this entire blog is a collection of ideas, some from frantic Google searches, but most from clever mom friends. I’ll try to give credit where credit is due.
And the lessons? They’re mine. They’re the lessons I learned. They’re not meant to be lessons for you. Maybe you’ll find some helpful, maybe you won’t. But hopefully you’ll at least be entertained!
