Being a parent is hard
Updated: Oct 22, 2022
I find being a parent the most challenging, emotionally complex and often isolating thing I have ever done. During the pandemic lockdowns of 2020, when I struggled to look after a toddler, manage a full-time job and grow another tiny human (in the high risk environment that is my body), I discovered that reaching out to other parents helped me feel more connected, less guilty and more hopeful that I could manage.
I created this mini blog series for two reasons. My passion is to make everyone feel more connected and supported. I want to share the collective wisdom we all gain as we face the daily challenges of raising our little ones. I want to create a community, sharing in the stress and also the joy of parenting. Whenever I speak to other parents I find most of my struggles are shared and other parents are only too willing to listen and give advice.

These posts serve partly as therapy for me, and partly in hopes that the words will resonate with you and help build a community of parents and friends that can support each other. Take a look around the website, and join if you want to see more.
