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.
