Spreading the Gospel

As we finally, six months late, get our act together and dive into our lives as a Parenting on Track family, we can’t help but become a little evangelical. During DNSN week, we’d have occasion to explain to friends what was going on in our lives, and while we couldn’t help do so with a tinge of deer-caught-in-the-headlights “we have no effin’ clue what we’re getting ourselve into here” shock and horror, we still managed to convey our sense of adventure and excitement about this new journey. And we’d run into fellow travellers who had either dabbled in or completed or considered or heard of the program, including the great friends who got us turned on to it in the first place.

It’s always great to have soul mates/partners in crime when you embark on something this epic, and as I click my way around the new world of POT blogs and find musings by parents across the contry, it’s remarkable how helpful and encouraging it is to read about others who are grappling twith and mastering the same tough issues as we. Then Vicky throws something like this in the mix, and we realize just how lucky we are to have found her to guide us along the way. Thanks, Vicky, we’ve neeeded a guide on this rough ride for some time now, and it’s great to sense that we’re no longer lost in the wilderness.
