Surprise! Actually, you aren’t truly surprised that “mermaid” is part of my website name if you know me. I decided on “The Mermaid Nook” because 1.) I’m obsessed with mermaids and I’m convinced I was supposed to be one and 2.) The definition of a nook is quite fitting for this little piece of Internet we are sharing with you:
A corner or recess, especially on offering seclusion or security
This blog is meant to share my personal successes and failures in the new parent department, as well as showcasing other mom/dad blogs that may help guide you in the overwhelming world of parenthood. I’ll also write about health and fitness, and the never ending balancing act between the two. You’ll get an inside look at our day to day lives. Laugh with us, wipe up your tears of parenting frustrations, and feel empowered knowing the parenthood community can be a nook for you when you find the right “pod” of merparents! I promise I won’t use mermaid references all the time, but I couldn’t help myself on that last one.
I’ll also feature small shops and businesses. I don’t know about you guys, but I love supporting the stay-at-home-parents and local businesses to keep food on their families’ tables. It is something near and dear to my heart!
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Amanda Prager. I’m 24 years old and live in the Panhandle of Florida. My boyfriend, George, and I have a wonderful daughter together. Her name is Norah. We are both active duty Air Force members. We have one black cat named Toothless (yes, like the movie!) I run, swim, and do an occasional Crossfit workout. I’m a sucker for anything sweet, but I’m really trying to nail down meal prep in a manner that isn’t monotonous and boring! If I figure out the secret to it, I’ll let you know and post about it! There is also an “About Me” page if you want to know more! Thank you for stopping by!
