Jayne is a work in progress.
I like to say that I am a know-it-all when it comes to cloth diapers, babywearing, infant feeding and baby gear. I am a little nuts about car-seat safety. I am a little more than obsessed with the cloth diapers vs. disposable diapers balance that is eco-warrior vs reality of the modern parent debate. I have a passion for sustainability, convenience, and raising the next generation to not be assholes.
I grew up with being the first girl in my school with an autism diagnosis, which meant I was a science experiment on how to help me foster interpersonal relationships while keeping me engaged in my school subjects. I am the proof that early intervention, patience in teaching and lots of counseling and support can help raise a semi-typical member of society. I am slightly entitled and I accept it, and I can only blame it on my nurturing.
I am both comfortable in the forest and in the concrete jungle. I could easily channel my inner Claire Dearing and run from a T-Rex in high-heels, or I could channel Ellie Sattler and put on my hiking boots. Regardless of what I am wearing, you can guarantee I think I look fantastic.
I am learning to reign in my inner know-it-all attitude and I am learning that life is full of hard lessons and mistakes and without them I would not gain knowledge or instinct.
I am who I am because of the things that have inspired me, the mistakes I have made, the people who have changed the way I see things, molded the path before me, and taught me that life is not how you see it, but what you want it to become.
I am Jayne.
