Have you glanced at the rows and rows of titles in the parenting section in your local bookstore or library lately? Turned on the television to view a panel of experts debating the latest theories on ways to create a “perfect” childhood? Walked down the aisles at the toy store and been overwhelmed by all of the choices, products, and systems?
Do you ever stop and wonder are we making this harder than it has to be?”
That quote is from the about page for Simple Kids. This week marks the five year anniversary of me taking over as editor here.
Many things have changed since that first day. Simple Living Media is different. Simple Kids is different. And, it can be said without argument, that I am different.
For one thing, my family has grown and we’ve been through some personal ups and downs. The blog itself has been through some ups and downs as well. What once began as me, a team of 12 contributors and almost two dozen book reviewers eventually became just me sitting here at this keyboard telling your stories and sharing what simple living with kids means to me.
Here we are: five years. That’s almost a lifetime in blogging years.
To celebrate, I wanted to host a giveaway, but not just any giveaway, I wanted to do something special and personal.
So, I’m going to make you something.
