At 15 months old, my daughter is insatiably curious. She touches everything, brings me toys and books to share, runs around the park and tries all the playground equipment. She chases her brother and is chased, in turn, by him. She’s on the go, go, go all the time.
Her energy, her joy at being active is no longer compatible with being a daily contributor to Babble.
In one of those endless decisions we have to make as parents, I’ve decided to step away from my laptop and my work as a parenting blogger in order to focus more fully on being a parent. Baby N and I need to be out of the house, interacting with other people, doing fun activities together, not hanging out in the living room so I can get one last photo edited or one last tweet sent. It’s time to play, not time to work.
I’ve so loved being part of the Babble Baby community. The other writers and the readers here are so amazing. Babble will remain my go-to site for all things baby and I know I can always come here to find the best toy reviews and answers to questions about child development or a new perspective on the latest parenting trend.
The biggest thing I’ve learned as a writer and reader here at Babble is how many different ways there are to be a parents. There’s no right and no wrong. Just different. In the end, we’re all loving our kids with all of our hearts and ding everything we can to give them the best start. We can all learn from each other and support each other, no matter what we’re doing. That’s what makes the community of parents so strong.
So farewell, Babble Baby! Thank you for letting me be a part of this for the past 15 months!
