Preparing for a Baby Break

The following is by Simple Kids editor Kara Fleck.

Friends, we have reached that time:  Baby Fleck number four will be arriving any day.  So, the time is right for me to take a little blogging break.  I’m looking forward to the downtime, but more than that, I’m looking forward to very soon holding our little girl in my arms.

What You Can Expect

However, don’t worry, you will be left in good hands.  The Simple Kids contributors have some terrific content coming up and I have hand selected some guest posters to write for the site, as well.

There are articles and essays coming up on a variety of topics regarding parenting, kids, and family life that I am sure you will enjoy.

I have also been at work on a series called Ages and Stages, which will run over the next few weeks and I am looking forward to sharing that with you.

Keeping in Touch

I’m sure there will still be some occasional updates here and there from me, both on the blog and on facebook and twitter, so that we can share our family’s joy and good news.  You can check in with me on my personal blog, Rockin’ Granola, too.

Thank you for your support and understanding. I’ll be checking in and will, hopefully, be sharing our good news very soon. Have a terrific weekend, everyone!
