About Baby-Gaga: Embracing the Craziness
There is an amazing amount of information and resources covering virtually every aspect of parenting and pregnancy online-- unfortunately, most of it tends to be under-whelmingly NOT fun and all the people in the photographs look so happy and put together with their children and their pregnant bellies that we're more than a little intimidated. Really, if everyone were so good at parenting than why get online in the first place?
Actually, as far as we can tell, pregnancy and parenting is some of the hardest work on the planet... the most rewarding hard work yes, but also the most chaotic, frustrating, and sometimes downright crazy work that there is. If we can share that craziness honestly instead of pretending there's always a single answer or that buying product Z will make it magically better, just maybe we'll find better more viable solutions to the challenges we face as parents of the future generation.
