Connection and support have always been at the heart of Boise With Kids. I'm a self proclaimed "connection junkie" so finding out something I've created has helped people feel connected... well, it's simply the best.
Check out this recent comment for example:
It meant the world to hear this!
It's so true, though. Motherhood can be really hard and lonely. It’s a real trip, isn’t it?
Always a roller coaster.
Always pushing us to stretch and grow.
Always an honor and privilege.
Never something we should be doing alone.
I’m so glad this online space has been a source of encouragement and support for local parents. I don’t have all the answers but I’m here for all of it alongside you. (I’m literally writing this while snuggling a sick 2 year old. Hello from "the trenches"!)
I'm so excited to share that Boise With Kids will be starting monthly parent meetups and workshops SOON! Some will be mom focused (let's be real... the BWK audience is mostly moms) but others will be open to moms, dads and any other caretakers looking to learn something new and meet other locals. The goal of these workshops and meetups is to foster connection while also giving guests the chance to get a few hours away (without kids) to learn something new and add new tools to their toolbox for "living their best life."
I recently asked for workshop topics and suggestions on our social media accounts and have a whole spreadsheet full of ideas! Everything from fun things like floral arranging and cookie and cake decorating to practical "adulting" things like meal planning, budgeting and organizing. There are SO many opportunities!
My friend Airian and I have been busy getting things coordinated and connecting with lots of local businesses and "experts" to put together some really cool events. (If you're a business. or"expert" who would be interested in getting in front of the Boise With Kids audience, we'd love to hear from you! Email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!)
Speaking of details, we are SUPER close to announcing the details of our first event in February! It's gonna be a great kickoff and you won't want to miss it! (BWK subscribers will be the first to get the invite so make sure you're subscribed!)
Alright, I better get back to "momming" my poor baby but I look forward to seeing you soon!
