Mmmm Beer. A quickly growing pastime here in Minnesota with the rise of home brewing, brew pubs, and an astounding number of local breweries that seem to be springing up like weeds! In fact, MPLS Mag has a list of 45 different Taprooms.
Another variable that is on the rise is the average age of first-time parents. In January 2016 NPR ran a story stating that average age for first time mothers had reached 26.5 years old. Per the CDC – this is almost 5.5 years older than the average was in 1970.
What does that mean for me as a parent? Well – to be blunt – it means that I’ve had more time enjoying a social drink with my friends than I like to lose all at once. It also means that more than anything – I want to spend time with my baby. How do those two things coincide?
