Hi, I’m Carolyn! In early 2010, I was working hard at a job that was slowly becoming less personally fulfilling, and trying to figure out what about my life I could change in order to attain my ultimate “career” goal – being a stay at home mom. My husband (who, like a superhero, prefers to protect his anonymity and thus will be called J) and I started this blog to chronicle the changes we were making in our lives as we stood at the precipice of moving from a dual-income household, to having a baby and living off of a single income (J’s, not mine! We’d have issues living in Southern California with what I made!) You can read more about what led to that decision here.
Also in the summer/fall of 2012, I started working part time behind the scenes for the cloth diapering website Padded Tush Stats (PTS). What started as simple database administration evolved to include writing reviews of cloth diapers (which meant that I had far less time to work on this site!) Balancing taking care of both kids AND working for PTS AND writing for my own sake has been a learning experience, and I’m still working out all the kinks. If you don’t hear from me here for a while, just assume that there’s lots going on in the diaper side of my life, but that I’ll be back eventually 😉
We continue to be, for the most part, pretty boring. We watch movies, read books, dance with the kids, and (despite Nathan’s protests) insist on singing along loudly to a variety of musicals. Even with a rather mundane life we still manage to end up with some crazy stories, so I invite you to spend some time on our blog, get to know us, and hear about all of our crazy antics and anecdotes as we go through our life and keep making changes!
