Hey there, and welcome to my blog. My name is Natasha and I'm a mom, a wife and a huge tech nerd, in that order. For some reason you have stumbled upon my personal blog, a staging area for my rants about being a mom, a wife and a tech nerd in this modern world of ours. With my kids I try to be a modern mom. What does that mean? For example, recently my husband and me purchased one of our sons an extremely big drone (he wanted a big one) and another an electric skateboard. These toys, if you could call them that, are very popular with the kids these days. Being a tech junkie myself, it wasn't a problem for me to buy a good quality RC drone and help the kids use them. There are however parents out there who aren't as tech savvy, and that's the kind of folks I'm hoping to help out with this blog of mine.
Being a modern mom can be challenging. Kids these days are born with tech in their little finger. Things reach such extremes that more often than not, kids end up being miles ahead of the parents, and parents just stare at them blankly when their kids ask them for an electric skateboard, a new Geforce graphics card or a DAC. Admit it, you maybe heard of the electric skateboard, less so about the Geforce graphics card and you probably have no clue what a DAC is. That is what I am talking about. If you heard about all those, you know what they are, then congrats, good for you. Where things fall apart is when parent isn't sure if a certain tech gadget, especially an expensive one, is something that their kid really needs and will they use it properly and fully. That's where I'll be giving my input as a mommy with experience in all of these.
On occasion I might also veer into subjects like how to get kids interested in school work, how to spend more time together as a family, fun activities for everyone that aren't boring, dealing with issues that life throws at you, you know, lighter stuff like that. My boys are now 12 and 15, so you could say that I have some experience raising kids and taking care of family. Matt, my husband, is a huge help of course. DIY projects are another passion of mine. It all started when I needed to help out boys with their school projects. School fairs got me hooked on baking. My cookies are a treat, or at least that's what I've been told (not by my husband, I know he doesn't count). Expect a couple of DIY tutorials and some of my secret recipes posted as well.
