Adventures in Parenting

This started out as a cooking blog, but it has evolved over the years since its inception in 2008...mainly because I have evolved since then too.  One of the most major developments was the birth of my son in 2015.  I've used this blog to chronicle that journey, from pre-mom jitters and prep, his birth story, monthly updates of his (and our) lessons learned, budgeting for baby, along with other periodic ramblings about motherhood.
Links to these posts can be found here, in chronological order, for any future mom looking for references, or for current moms/dads looking for a few laughs.
