I’m J. I’ve been with my partner for four years and we have a 5 week old son.

In my professional life I have worked for over a decade as a professional nanny - master’s degree, it’s not babysitting, yes like what the UK royal family has. Though I’ve only been a legitimate parent for a few weeks, I’ve seen that it isn’t very different from nannying in the mechanical aspects (changing a diaper is changing a diaper) only in the self-regulation/emotional/energy OF MYSELF aspects (with nannying, I could clock out and sleep), so I hope that some of my professional expertise can translate here.

Hello! I’m a Dad with F8 and M5 - we’re into bike rides and video games. Excited to be here!

I’ll start this off light!

I’m justjared, been with my partner for 18 years and we have a 10yo daughter. I have begrudgingly (read: encouragingly) helped her build a stuffed animal collection that has everything from sting rays to camels, from toilet paper rolls to stuffed pop/soda plushies, and only a little disappointed she hasn’t taken to Lego a bit more.

On Reddit, I’ve been a mod on r/parenting for 7+ years, and I’ve been running the Parenting Discord for the past 3+ years. The communities that spring up in those places have a lot of good wisdom and tips :)

I’m hoping to meet a bunch of new faces here and learn about difficulties faced with parents who are disabled and their experiences in raising their children. My wife is recently-ish disabled and pivoting our parenting strategy has taken a few minutes to find our feet.
