I’ve been writing here on Babble for almost seven months now and, while it is impossible to share a story without injecting a bit of yourself into it, the predominance of my tales have centered around my son, Anders. Before I was a writer at Babble, I was a reader here. I loved tagging along on the journey of other mothers with children of similar ages to my own.
Many times reading about the milestones and phases of other children reassured me that mine were on track or that I wasn’t alone when suffering through a particularly difficult parenting situation. That’s the power and the appeal of blogs, in my opinion. No matter what you are experiencing there is someone out there with whom you can identify and they are only a google search away.
Reading about children can be entertaining, but I often find myself wondering about the mothers telling their stories. I have enjoyed the inside look into the lives of the Babble writers around the blogs over the past couple of weeks so much, I thought I’d share as well.
I’ve boiled my life down to 14 quick facts with accompanying awkward photos. Here we go.
