I’m Sarah, the mom of four mostly wonderful kids; fraternal twins Rachel and Andrea, age 13; Cody, age 9; and Logan, age 7. I also work from home as a freelance writer. Along with crazy amounts of laundry, helping the kids with whatever their need of the moment may be, making meals, writing, and other miscellaneous housework, I have two other part-time jobs — office and advertising manager, as well as proofreader, of a scholarly theological journal. And of course I blog here about the learning curve inherent in parenting.
Anyone who has kids knows that parenting is all about trial and error, learning, growing and, most importantly, staying flexible. Each child is unique. What might work for one, may not for another. Nobody knows better than you, the parent, how to best handle your child, but sometimes you have to try several solutions before finding the right one. Discussions, advice and shared experiences between parents can help us find the right formula for our children’s personalities and needs, and it is with that in mind that I created this blog.
You can also find me at my writing website, www.saraheludwig.com and as a contributor on HVParent. I also have two essays in the anthology Fits, Starts, & Matters of the Heart: 28 True Stories of Love, Loss and Everything in Between.
I encourage you to comment, ask questions, share stories or whatever you like, as long as it’s about kids, family life and parenting. Lively discussions are a lot of the fun of blogs, so please share!
