An Interrupted Posting Schedule Due to Baby and Toronto Commute

Life is a series of beautifully unpredictable moments that shape our journey. As bloggers, podcasters and YouTubers, we often share our experiences and insights with our readers/viewers. However, sometimes life takes us on a new path that requires adjustments. Today, I want to explain why our posting schedule has been so impacted by the birth of our baby, ArchaeoBaby. I’ll also explain why there is an extra layer we didn’t expect.

The Arrival of Our Bundle of Joy

In June 2023, our lives were forever transformed by the arrival of our little one. The moment we held our baby in our arms, we felt an overwhelming sense of love and responsibility. Parenthood is a remarkable journey filled with joys, challenges, and countless sleepless nights, and we couldn’t be happier.

A Shift in Priorities

With the arrival of our baby, our priorities have naturally shifted. While we are still deeply passionate about Dining Through Time, Bitesized History with the Saints and Brad’s Labs; caring for our newborn has become our top priority. The early days of parenthood demand our full attention and devotion, and we want to ensure that we are fully present during this precious time.

We also are managing Meghan returning to work full-time as of July 31st; which came with caveat that we did not except to be such a large life interruption: Commuting for 3 hours a day to Toronto and home, 3 days per week.

An Interrupted Posting Schedule

In light of our new responsibilities as parents, we want to ask for forgiveness for any delays in our posting schedule. We believe that quality content requires time, research, and dedication. We don’t want to compromise the standard of our work by rushing to meet deadlines.

What to Expect During This Time

While our posting frequency may decrease, our commitment to delivering high-quality content remains unwavering. We are excited about the opportunity to share new perspectives and insights that parenthood has already brought into our lives. You can expect to see posts on social about parenting experiences and reflections on the joys and challenges of raising a child.

We will also share insights on how Meghan is managing an expanded workload. She has a full-time career, produces content, and is heavily involved in childrearing. This is compounded by being a postpartum mother, who is breastfeeding.

Returning to work at 9 weeks postpartum was hard enough. However, she is dealing with her work situation changing to her commuting into the office, three days per week. Since she is breastfeeding, she has to bring ArchaeoBaby and myself with her, has not been great for all of us. We will continue to make the trek with her as long as needed. However, that does mean that occasionally, there will not be enough hours in the day to film a short, record a podcast episode or post onto social.

We also welcome your input and suggestions for topics you’d like us to explore during this phase of our journey. Your feedback has always been invaluable to us, and we want to ensure that our content continues to serve as a valuable resource for our community.

The Power of Adaptation

Life is a continuous journey of adaptation, and this change in our schedule is a testament to that truth. Parenthood has opened up new horizons for us, and we are excited to share this chapter of our lives with you. We believe that by embracing change and allowing ourselves the grace to adapt, we can continue to grow and evolve as individuals and as content creators.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support during this exciting and transformative time in our lives. We look forward to sharing our experiences, insights, and the occasional baby insight/photo (with ArchaeoBaby’s face hidden, of course) with you as we navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood together. Stay tuned for our upcoming posts, and let’s continue to learn and grow together as a community.

Warm regards,

Bradly and Meghan Saint
