Hello and welcome!
I’m Kelly and I’m so glad you’re here!
As a former Registered Nurse working in the NICU and Pediatric Units, I figured this whole ‘parenting’ thing would be a breeze.
And then I became a parent…
That breeze was more like a Category 5 Hurricane I hadn’t prepared for.
But then the most amazing thing happened.
I started sharing my experiences and realized that almost everyone I talked to was going through the EXACT SAME THING!!
Hitting. Biting. Whining. Dawdling. Picky Eating.
And none of us had any idea what we were doing.
Sure, we were all trying our best. But our ‘best’ usually involved a lot of anger, yelling, punishment and all-round yucky feelings.
Not exactly how I wanted to spend the next 2? 3? 10?(!!) years of my life.
So I decided to do something about it.
I am so thankful for those early difficulties as they have pushed me to take an active role in improving my parenting skills. The lessons I’ve learned have changed my relationship with my children for the better.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m hardly dancing around in a field of daisies every day. Parenting is hard work. There are new challenges minute to minute. I have moments where I feel like my head is going to explode.
But I’m up for the challenge
Please join me as I take you through some of the mistakes I’ve made and lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Parenting is a messy business – Let’s work through it together.
