Being a stay-at-home parent is rewarding and challenging in so many ways. It allows for quality time and closeness during those early years (that you can never get back), as well as a freedom and flexibility that a structured career simply doesn’t allow. Drop-offs and pick-ups, school activities, social events, etc. all become more feasible with one parent at home.
There is a lot of beauty in technology, and there are a million ways to use it wisely with kids. We certainly don’t believe it should be avoided entirely - however there is such a thing as too much of a good thing! So we’re unplugging, getting our hands dirty, and getting in touch with a little imagination!
