As the original millennials get older, they are also starting their own familes.
The children of Gen Y will grow up with parents who have Facebook, text messaging, and blogs; parents who were entering the workforce just as the hardest recession since the Great Depression came down on our economy. More children will be born to college graduates than in any other previous generation, as well as two-income households.
We found out we would be expecting in November 2008 and never did we imagine how quickly life could change. We welcomed our son to the world in August 2009 and have only begun to navigate this whole parenting thing.
It’s much too early to write the book on millennial parenting, but this blog seeks to introduce you to the culture, stories, and hilarity of millennial parenting. As we watch our son grow, so we grow. We’re new to this whole parenting thing. So sit back and enjoy. You’re in for a ride.
