Wow! What a ride it has been the last 3 ½ years building Confessions of Parenting! I remember back on that August night breastfeeding my newborn baby in the middle of the night trying to figure out my purpose. Up to that point I had gone through so much but here I sat feeling like I didn’t have a purpose, I was just a stay-at-home mom. (Don’t get me wrong, I love being a stay at home mom and I love stay at home moms!) But I felt like I had lost my identity and my purpose. At that moment at 1:38 am Confessions of Parenting was born and I instantly felt joy!
Confessions of Parenting started out as a blog about babies, a little bit about marriage, parenting, and the difficult topic of helping families through the transition of life to blended families.
Over time I have grown and changed so much as a person in Real Life and started sharing those things with you on the blog like
- Easy recipes + Kids in the Kitchen Recipes
- Games, lots of games!
- Marriage, but more specifically actionable steps you can take to strengthen your marriage relationship.
- Blended Family helps
- Parenting, but have expanded past babies to parenting styles, toddlers, and the all-important job of parenting teenagers!
- Teenagers, yes, we have a whole section of the blog specific for teenagers to come and find advice and tips that are age-appropriate! Here they can grab truth or dare over text, conversation starters over text, or even questions on how to talk to a girl or a guy! We know how hard it is to be a teenager (I have 3!) so we want to provide the best resources specifically for them!
- Modest Fashion
- And more!
But as I started sharing these things I felt a huge disconnect on Instagram. How can I share all of these things as Confessions of Parenting?
I always felt defeated… So today I am taking 2021 by the horns and making it the year that it finally happens, I am switching my name on Instagram~ I am now @micheletripple I am so excited and pumped for this because we will be sharing all our awesome blog content more often over in stories and in the feed on Instagram, so if you aren’t there yet, be sure to follow us!
