Indoors 2 Out—A Blog on Family Raising in Wisconsin 

This blog is dedicated to everything family related. I post about anything from the difficulties and joys involved in raising children to fun indoor and outdoor places to take your family. I also cover how to handle common problems and provide general tips and advice on parenting. I love my family, but I also love Wisconsin, so be prepared for a lot of content involving the great state I live in! 

Family is an ongoing project 

I know it’s cliche but raising a family has been an eye-opening experience for me. I had no idea what to expect when I became a parent and it still managed to surprise me. It still surprises me now, on a near-daily basis. The give and the take, the excitement, the sleepless nights, the joys, the frustrations—it’s all a necessary part of the experience.  

I’ll be honest, raising children is just like life in general—a pain in the ass, yet still rewarding. If you’ve recently become a parent, welcome to your infinitely more complicated life! I had a friend that said, “my favorite age is 30” and sometimes that’s just how raising kids is going to feel.  

I’d love to offer you reassurance that things do get better and easier, but it’s unlikely you’d believe me anyways! I’ve created this blog to offer a more realistic standpoint on family—that raising a family isn’t all rainbows, fairytales, and #blessed Instagram posts. Raising a family is difficult! And there’s nothing wrong with admitting that. At the end of the day, despite all of the hardship, seeing your child grow and adapt over the years is a fascinating and endlessly rewarding experience—I wouldn’t change it for the world. 

Make sure to check the blog often, as I’ll be posting regularly on all family topics!
