Life is a crazy thing, don't you think? It never ceases to surprise me. The biggest life changer for me was having our son, Caleb. It's been the hardest, yet most rewarding and precious thing life has brought me so far (and probably ever).
The minute Caleb was born, everything changed. If you've had a child, you know what I'm talking about. You're thrust into a new way of living. I no longer worked at a corporation spending my days at a desk. Going to the grocery store because you forgot an item is no longer quick and easy (scratch that, going at all isn't easy). Going on a date night takes weeks of planning. Let alone mention that you don't a clue how to raise a human being. It's crazy. It's great. It's scary. It's everything.
As a first time, and new(ish) mom, I find I sometimes miss using a part of my brain that isn't just about how to raise my little human. I miss having co-workers and getting creative (ehh, I don't miss upset clients, though). That's how I landed here with Raising Tacoma. I thought it would be great to start a little online community where I can share all that goes into raising a child in Tacoma. You'll get to read about places my son and I go, things we eat (or don't eat, heehee), activities, or just my jibber jabber about crazy life things. Also, I hope to give encouragement and let you know you're not alone (as in, "yup, that happens to us, too").
I hope you join me on this adventure. Feel free to chime in and comment when I post. I love to hear from you. It makes me feel like I'm not just talking to myself (which does happen).
