Notice anything different? That’s right, I went with a new WordPress theme! The blog is over a year old now, and with my upcoming trip to a whole new place, I decided to start with a whole new look.
The other day I went to breakfast with a couple and their newborn. As we talked and caught up, the husband noticed me cutting the kids food, setting them up with toys, and doing all I need to do to have a few minutes of a sane quiet meal out. He said “it looks like hard work, but I can’t see why you can’t also do this in Buenos Aires, or India, or where ever you go. I think its great you aren’t afraid to take the kids with you when you travel”. That right there is one of the reasons I started this blog. I’ve always felt the same way and I wanted to show and inspire others to do the same. It’s never easy, and I’ve never intended to show it any different. But if I have to change diapers, clean up messes, and entertain and educate my children anyway, what’s the difference if I do it at home or somewhere else? (Not to mention the significant educational and cultural benefits that come with travel.)
There may be some cleaning up over the next few days as I work to make the site look just the way I want it. Please excuse the work in progress. Once it is all done, I hope you continue to come here to read my stories, and I hope a few of you are inspired to take that trip you felt you haven’t been able to since baby entered the picture.
