Welcome all Paranoid Parents!!!!
Welcome to our blog. We are two moms with one thing in common- we spend a lot of time worrying.
We worry about how much playdough/stickers/crayons/fill-in-the-blank that our kids have eaten. Poison control knows us by name. We worry about how we discipline our children, if we coddle them too much or not enough. We fret. We read the latest research and product reviews. We stalk Web M.D. when our kid has a rash, and freak ourselves out with descriptions about exotic diseases that could lead to certain death.
Parenting is an art, not a science. It can be hard.We've found that only one a few things help to keep our heads from exploding: reassurance from a rational person who isn't emotionally exhausted, reliable fact-based information, and chocolate. Also, knowing that other parents out there are in the same boat, and learning how they have dealt with it gives us encouragement. Hence, this blog.
Taylor is a stay-at-home mom to two kids ages five and three, a certified behavior analyst, and a bookworm. She loves star charts, Dr. Pepper, and has Poison Control on speed dial.
Rory is a slightly neurotic stay-at-home mom to three kids ages one, two and five. She enjoys writing and hiding from her kids in the closet while eating candy bars.
Send in your questions, share your experiences, and help us create a place where we can discuss our triumphs and failures, and hopefully learn something along the way.
