Bike, Banjo & Baby

Today’s feature blogger Bike, Banjo & Baby believes you shouldn’t give up what you love when you become a parent.

Let’s find out how she makes it work!

I believe that parents should hold onto what they love, even with a baby in the house. My husband is passionate about bikes and I love to play the five-string banjo. My blog is all about squeezing in time for your passions while busily raising a little one. Stop by and let me know what your interests are and how you manage to juggle them, with or without kids!

    I agree with you 100%! Part of the reason I believe my parents were so successful at guiding my sister and I through life was the realization early on that they had their own special likes/interests/hobbies. I hope to be able to do this one day when I’m a parent, but I’m sure it’s much easier said than done. Checking out your blog now – Happy SITS Day! :)

    I can’t wait to check out your blog. This is something my husband and I have really struggled with in deciding if/when to have kids. So glad to hear you and your husband haven’t given up everything you love when your child came!

    Happy SITS day….I love the premise of your blog – it’s way to easy to put off what you love til the kids are older…but that makes for unhappy mommas! Gonna go check out your blog :)

    Good for you for sticking with what you love, your child will love that about both of you as you share your passions (Also love the colour scheme on your site 😉

    I completely agree with you! I am not a Momma, but I have always told myself that when I do become a mother, I will still do the things I am passionate about! Those things are what make us who we are! So excited to be reading along with you!

    P.S. Baby C is precious!!!

    Suzanne, your blog is adorable! I love your position that you don’t have to “give something up” to become a parent. Can’t wait to read more!

    You have the right attitude. I agree wholeheartedly. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a while and have been unsuccessful, but instead of crying about it, we are fully embracing the time that we have alone together as a couple. We travel, explore, eat out, enjoy time with our friends and their children. I tell my husband he’s my big baby!

    I found it easier to juggle it all when they were little, believe it or not. But it won’t be long before I am a 1/2 empty nester so my time will come again … Heading over to check out the three B’s!

      Really? That’s interesting and I’d love to hear more. What about older kids makes it difficult to juggle. I want to know what I’m in for. Or maybe I don’t. Haha.

    You and I share the belief that you should still remain who you are despite the family life. Happy SITS day!

      I do believe that. And everyone benefits. Kids need to have positive role models, and parents who are well-rounded people are good examples for them, I think. :)

    Hi Suzanne! Happy SITS day! I don’t know how you manage to reply to everyone. I just wanted to say that your family photo is gorgeous and that your approach to continue with the things you love in life with a baby in tow is great!

      I was replying while C was napping and now she’s in bed for the night and I’m at it again. Thanks so much for visiting!

        I would just like to point out that although it says I posted that at 3pm, I did not. I don’t put my baby to bed for the night at 3, although some days I wish I could.
