Welcome to My Blog

Life with young children can be challenging, but with the support and advice of friends, we can feel empowered and thankful for the blessing of being a Mom.

My musings are those of a self-proclaimed attachment-parenting Tiger mom, who juggles full-time mommying with a small (but growing!) baby-related business. I hope some of my thoughts help you

Get Creative!

One of the perks in being a parent is that we can tap into our own inner child - fascination with new and exciting things, being silly and creative, and enjoying the colorful, whimsical world we live in.

Another perk is that our kids keep us on our toes and challenge us to think one-step-ahead.

In response, we strive to find creative, interesting ways to inspire our children and promote good behavior.

Our family balances 5 young children, and every so often we have to renew our "rewards system" to keep them intrigued.

Our most recent was worth sharing: personalized award-tickets to each child for teamwork, chores well-done, kindness, and other good behavior... tickets are later redeemed for prizes - yes, they are perforated to tear - just like a "real" carnival ticket!
