A Community I Love
In 2006 I joined a South African parenting forum thinking it’d be a place to get pregnancy and parenting advice. I hung around a while wondering why it was full of conversations about anything BUT parenting before I decided to just jump in with both feet (causing a fair amount of trouble more than once).
Its been 5 years now and so many of the people I’ve met there have become close personal friends in real life. They’re an amazing bunch of women who both love and fight like family. I know its been an amazing support system for so many people and even now when I am thousands of kilometres away I still visit daily and think of them often. I’ve joined a few local parenting forums but haven’t yet become a part of the furniture like I did there… I guess it takes time.
Anyhoo… I love you BN tarts. Well, most of you anyway.
