About This Blog

Tara Rittler is the web & social media editor at TulsaKids, and she recently received a master's in strategic communication from OSU-Tulsa. The name "Spaghetti on the Wall" is meant to reflect Tara's approach to life, parenting, and this blog: a kind of "see what sticks and try not to stress out" mentality. "Spaghetti on the Wall" will chronicle the adventures of raising a two-year-old son, with an emphasis on baking, crafting, exploring Tulsa, and sampling new flavors of ice cream. Tara also has a degree in English Literature from the University of Tulsa and loves reading, so expect some themed book lists and book reviews as well.
