A child of the 80's I am an older mom. Right now I'm 49 and I have a 7 year old kid. You can do the math, I don't mind. I also have a 17 year old and a 13 year old. Because I spaced my kids apart I got to go through the toddler phase three separate times. This taught me a lot. It also put me through a lot. It also gave me a lot.
As you know, parenting is a grab bag.
Some of the reasons I'm obsessed with personal growth and parenting is that I homeschool. (Well, we unschool, but that's a different story.) Since we are around each other all the time I need some tips that seriously work–I don't just get a break while they are at school. I'm also a Highly Sensitive Person. And I mean highly sensitive. Because of this I have needed to implement some strategies that seriously work. And for years my husband travelled for work. A lot. And since I did a lot of parenting myself many days and nights, I had to find ways to make things work for the long haul.
But mostly, I have always been interested in what people adore, what brings them joy, and how to get the most of out life. That's a large reason why I got a B.A. in Education. I wanted to inspire kids.
But then I got a Masters in Theatre, ended up working in the internet industry traveling the world as a project/relationship manager, got into improv (23 years and counting) and THEN had some kids...
You know how it goes.
I blog here for fun. My "job" outside of homeschooling is as a spiritual law of attraction coach. But here, on ReallyGoodLife I just like to write about, well, life. My favorite topic. :)
