The Littlest Payne is napping and I have some time to reflect on how our very first March – at 38 years (me) and 14 months (she) – went. We attended the March for Our Lives event in Nashville, Tennessee today, March 24, 2018.
I am a parent with anxiety who is strongly an introvert in many social situations. Typically I would say “hell no, thanks” to an event with a crowd in the thousands. The message behind March for Our Lives – simply put, gun control – is important to me so I put my brave face on for Littlest and committed to doing this. There were a couple things that made this commitment easy(ish) and two very specific factors that made attending and participating in an event like a march in a medium sized city achievable.
