Why the recent radio silence, you ask?
As bloggers, Jim and I have tried to keep a separation between parts of our lives (especially in respecting the privacy of those close to us) and what we post. This summer, that undisclosed part of our lives has been a series of challenges and revelations. My mind became a contemplative space. As a result, I kept writing posts about our normal content that felt formulaic, cheesy, or out of touch. In my opinion, those writings simply were not worth posting. Even our 4th blogaversary passed unmentioned.
Recently Baby Toolkit's siren's song has returned to my ears. This summer Jim and I have found a host of things we want to write about. I really want to tell you about Ranger's birthday cake and let you peek into our geeks' eye view of GenCon. This has been a banner year for new books and games as publishers put out some surprisingly wonderful new products for preschoolers. I'm reading a book on baby cognitive development that is fresh and inspiring even for a seasoned parent. A new compilation album is rocking our world. We also have some new projects and household solutions.
Thank you for subscribing and sticking with us through the quiet times. Your good faith is strong motivation to return to the keyboard.
***Baby Toolkit is two geeks' tale of parenting young children in a complicated and ever-fascinating world. We send our best wishes to others currently battling the dragons of offline life.
