There’s a Daddy Too

There’s a Daddy Too


Everyone puts all their focus onto the female. Pregnancy is a lot about the female yes, but there is also a male role during this time as well. And I think nobody seems to understand that. I may be carrying the baby, I may have to endure the physical side such as pains and aches. But emotionally, this is a new lifestyle.

 “How are you doing?”, “How is baby doing?”, is what a here mostly everyday, from close friends, from distant friends I never used to speak to. But I see no one messaging or asking my husband the same questions. Why is that?

 Stress, anxiety, happiness, excitement, fear. That is all going through both of our heads. What will come next when we bring a new life into this world? The woman isn’t the only one who has to endure a child for the next 18+ years. I think more focus should be turned onto the men. They are just wanting to be included, and feel like they play some part in this as well, which they definitely do, of course, they made the other half of this child.

 I stay up all night, I toss and turn, I am emotional and lazy, and most of all, I am in a lot of pain and just plain exhausted. This what the woman has to endure other than of course the actual birth, there are hundreds of symptoms women can get from pregnancy, and we have to get through that, but what does the man do? He cleans, he stays up all night with us when we toss and turn, he cooks more, lifts more, keeps his mouth shut when he knows we are just raving pregnant women. All while still planning for baby to come.

 Next time you have a pregnant friend, ask the man how he is doing. Because he is going through this right beside his partner.








When you think about raving, or people at music festivals, lets be honest.. we assume a bunch of silly kids on drugs and drinking, but I have a different story to tell about my rave life.

I used to hate edm music, going out to clubs, djs. It all just seemed like one big ‘party life’ and that is something I was not interested in. My husband (boyfriend at the time) loved the music, loved the events, and loved going out, so of course whether I liked it or not, I got tickets to go to my first big music festival! Now I know NOTHING about DJs or edm music at this point and I just think all these weird names like Krewella and Flume were plain just stupid.

I was so amazed, as soon as I walked in… It was terrible. The music was loud, there was the typical messed up people on drugs or have had to much alcohol, everyone looked.. VERY dressed up, or should I say dressed down (wow lots of skin was seen). But the longer I stayed there, the more I liked it.

The people were the nicest people I have ever met, all the ‘losers’ of high school, all the people that want to spread love. I have met all the people that will one day be in my future wedding, and they were. You don’t become friends really, you become a family. In rave, in life. I have never been more myself than around these people.

As I said earlier, I HATED the music. It all just sounded the same to me… Until I started listening more and more. There are so many genres within this one EDM genre. These DJs have a way of making you feel their music, and really feel it. Other than being myself at raves and around my family, I have also never been so emotional than at a rave. Music has a way of reaching these people in such a way that is so overwhelming at beautiful.

Now a days I actually have started for a company that puts on these shows! I promote amazing music and artists which allows me to meet new people, friends, DJs, and even travel a little bit for music festivals.

I hope more people can get into this lifestyle as something thats not just ‘party’ but a real life that can be so beautiful.



My name, Taylor-Jade. I have grown up in the beautiful rocky mountains of Canmore, Alberta. I love writing and therefore blogging. What about? Being a wife, a mommy, a yoga girl, and of course a raver.

Being a wife is something I love to be, cooking for my family. Showing my husband what true love is everyday. A mommy, now that is something I will never believe, its just to special to fathom. I have grown up doing gymnastics, but now have a new found love for yoga everyday, it has truly changed my life.

My rave life, is something you will have to read about in the rest of my blog. TOO much for just a plain about me 😉smile
