Firstly, a very big welcome to you from Rem and I. Starting a blog has been something that I have wanted to do for a very long time, but just haven’t gotten to it for various reasons. But let me quickly introduce myself and tell you a bit about the inspiration behind this all. My name is Kirsty, and I am a 20-something year old wife and mother to an extremely headstrong little 13 month old girl, Emily. I cannot believe that I can say she’s 13 months (today, actually!).. this time period flew by, even though there were some days that felt like an eternity.
I am extremely fortunate in that I’ve been able to stay at home with Emily from day one, something that I will be forever grateful for. The bond between my little girl and I is unbreakable and I love spending each and every second with her, and watching her grow. That said, there have been huge ups and downs throughout this journey, and that is how Raising Rem has come about. I spent (and still spend) a lot of time reading parenting and lifestyle blogs, and they have all, for the most part, helped inspire me in some way. It is my hope that I am able to do the same for others.
This blog will obviously mostly focus on all things parenting, but I have a huge range of interests that I would love to talk about! I’m so excited for everything to come, and hope that you will enjoy this journey with us.
Kirsty and Rem
