What are things you guys are interested in? What moves parents nowadays?

I feel like right now so many things are changing. However, due to the fact that I'm with my son 24/7 I feel like I sometimes miss the trends I used to be part of...

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

I became a mother at 19, so I didn't really have much time to get into trends. Now, however, I have a focus on health/wellness/fitness stemming from surviving cancer, gaining too much weight, falling into a depression, having to be the only source of support and care for my daughter when she started having health problems. I follow health/fitness blogs/websites/FB pages, like Women's Health, FitnessRx for Women, Skinny Mom, and this site. I share my story and knowledge on my own blog and Facebook pages.

For fashion trends, of which I've grown very fond, I quickly browse sites like OMG! On Yahoo, the same magazines above, and celebs own FB pages. I pick out what I like and make mental note. I also like Polyvore for puttin together outfits I like. Pinterest is a great comprehensive tool. I'm on there, too.

I hope this helps some.

My interests haven't changed much since becoming a mother. Of course I don't go out as much as I used to and my priorities have changed, but my interests have remained the same (reading, fashion, socializing, reading blogs, making jewelry, painting my nails). I do however have some new interests since having my daughter like watching kids' movies, playing the Wii, going to the park, bike riding, jumpy houses (lol) and a host of other kid-friendly things.

Thanks for your feedback.

It's similar to what you said. Back in the day I would try to wear hip clothes and I knew all about what was going on in the celebrity world...wow, that sounds really superficial. Now, I mainly focus on my son and although fashion, for example, doesn't mean that much to me anymore I would still like to stay up to date to a certain extent.

Do you know what I'm talking about? What are your interests now that you are a mother?

My interests changed after I became a mother. Everything became about them and how I could be a better mother and role model to them.

What kinds of trends did you used to be a part of?
