As a new SAHM, chauffering toddlers between playgrounds and regularly-scheduled activities, I met other parents in similar circumstances or in even worse shape than me – new to town, knowing no one and with few resources other than the internet. We all sought out the gurus – parents with older kids who had already tried and tested these waters. One key fact was consistent: there is no one like a fellow parent more willing to share what they know to help another parent out.
I believe in practical parenting, without judgement, because no two kids or families are alike. As a mom to three kids, I can tell you that just from the experience under my own roof! I share what works for my family, in the hopes that anyone facing the same mom struggles can benefit from my experiences (without the trial, error and mistakes I hit first!).
