About me… I’m a (young) 30-something living in New Brunswick, Canada with my hubby, two (mostly) darling little boys, and a dog that gets nowhere near the attention she did before kids came along. We live in a treehouse (okay, not literally) and like trying to keep life as simple and clean as possible.
When I came to the end of Oliver’s baby book, I decided I wanted a place to record some of the things he does every day… milestones, funny faces, new words … the sort of thing that is insignificant to everyone else but a big deal to a mommy! My attempt at a handwritten journal was unsuccessful (because really, who writes anymore?!), so this is my next attempt at keeping up.
My hope is that they will get a lot of joy out of browsing through these posts someday too.
I’ll throw in posts of crafty adventures (and misadventures) from time to time – not because I think I’m wonderfully talented or anything but because I think it’s fun to take pictures and have a record of those things. I’ll also throw in the odd recipe – again, not because I think I’m a wonderful cook but because it’s nice to have one place to store the recipes I’ll make over and over again.
But I suppose the title of this space refers as much to my children growing up as it does to my own growth as a woman and mother. Parenthood is tough! So many things change when that first little one comes along and it really threw me for a loop that none of my books even came close to preparing me for. It’s taking a lot of adjustment to figure out who I am as a mommy but it’s a journey I’ve settled into and that I’ll be on for the rest of my life.
Every step makes a difference.
