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!

  4. 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! :)

  5. Sounds like a blog I could’ve used “back in the day” when my kids were small. My hobbies and pastimes disappeared as my time was filled with the children.

  22. 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!

  26. 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.
