What better place to raise kids than in San Diego. In the midst of all the advantages that come with growing up in such an awesome city are some tell tale signs that you are in fact a child being raised in this amazing city we love to call home. Let’s take a look at all that we know to be true for our native San Diego kids.
When I show up at the playground I know exactly which type of mom I am and exactly who there will be my conversation for the next few hours. Do you?
You don’t know what you don’t know and your 20’s are no exception. Parenting is something we see day in and day out; from an outside perspective it seems pretty cut and dry. But then you become the mother and it really turns your understanding of children, family and even the whole world upside down. Here are just a handful of truths that I wish I could go back in time and explain to my pre-kid self. Let’s face it, my sisters are probably reading this and wishing that I consulted them because there are probably another dozen lessons they would have loved to teach me back when they had kids and I was in my 20’s.
Most people think wine country and naturally completely leave the kids out of the picture. But, as someone who grew up in Sonoma County and travels up there with the kids for weeks at a time, I’m here to tell you bringing the kids to wine country is not only feasible, it’s fun.
Raising kids in San Diego is an absolute treat. With an abundance of sunshine, culture and kid friendly activities the possibility for a fun filled day of adventure is endless. But even with all those options, just like parents everywhere you get stuck in a rut, especially during the summertime.
I don’t know about you but I’m tired of finding the same “kid friendly activities” online. I don’t want to go where you sponsor is paying you to tell me to go; I want someplace new and let’s be real, inexpensive. You can easily spend a small fortune getting a membership to each tourist attraction but having memberships to all of them doesn’t make sense and sometimes you just don’t want to fight the crowds. So how do you break out of the pack and enjoy some new activities with your toddler?
