    This is a book club, conversation space and community for parents or caregivers of little people who are looking for shared connection on the struggles and joys of parenting. Sleepless nights, big emotions, stepping on a toy car that feels like a shard of glass and surprise jam on your best work shirt, parenting is not always the social media perfect picnic it is cracked up to be. At the same time you love them to bits and are trying to merge the life before them with your current reality while also keeping all the balls in the air and doing your best to raise kind and thoughtful humans amidst a crazy and changing world.

    Explore concepts of parenting, identity and the ever present “mom or dad guilt”.

    If you don’t have time to read the book, still come! Chill vibes and welcoming space.
