I finally have time to write a blog…or do I?

A couple years ago, I was recounting yet another story of chaos at my house to my boss who suggested I should start a blog.  Encouraged, I purchased a WordPress account and then promptly forgot about it for two years.  Well, I was reminded of it once when the auto-renew payment was extracted from my bank account.  Why didn’t I follow through?  Like so many of us, I was juggling a lot – an awesome and exciting job with lots of travel, enthusiastic and spirited kids who both play competitive sports, a couple of wild dogs, and all the other stuff.  Fast forward a couple of years and we are six weeks in to a global pandemic, juggling remote working, kids’ distance learning, my husband’s renovation projects (because that’s his way of dealing with sheltering-in-place), and keeping up with the endless cooking, dishes and laundry . . . what better time to finally start my blog. 

Most of the time, when it comes to parenting, I am definitely winging it, which creates fertile ground for comedy. I expect this blog will mostly be about my kids’ crazy shenanigans and my responses to them. But who knows, I’m also a sociologist by trade, so I can’t help but see the world from that lens. I plan to keep the blog light and personal, but I may not be able to help myself from commenting on the changing social norms as we enter a new pandemic observant world.

I’m an “older” mom juggling a career I love, two awesome boys, one a “spirited” 8 year old and the other a stubborn 5 year old, two wild rescue dogs, and a patient and supportive husband. When it comes to parenting, I’m usually winging it which often leads to some comical stories to which I suspect other juggling parents might relate.
