Welcome to my Blog! First, please allow me to introduce myself.
I am a first-time mom to an adorable little boy and a wife of 10 years and counting….. I didn’t know much about parenting before my son was born, but I do have a bit of experience with children. I worked as a preschool teacher for over 5 years when I first moved to Southern California. I moved to So Cal. basically to continue an education in fashion and costume design. After all, where’s the best place to nurture a fledgling career in fashion – LaLaLand, of course!
After a brief stint in costuming for music videos, independent films, and other freelance gigs, I decided that I wanted to do something else – writing. I’ve always loved writing alongside with sketching clothes and such. And writing was my other love besides costume design. I worked in a prominent publishing company for many years and then moved to a smaller publishing firm later. Now, I freelance write for several magazines and contributed to a couple of books.
But what does all this have to do with parenting and my blog? Well, everything is tied together and some things will always lead to another thing. I gave birth to a wonderful but oftentimes mischievous boy (but he is only in his toddler years at the moment) and writing freelance gave me a wonderful opportunity to stay home. I also have a very supportive husband who allows me to indulge in writing and being a stay-at-home-mom. And after many years as a preschool teacher and with over 15 years of experience in the health and education industry, I found that sharing my experiences and knowledge to others can also help me learn and grow as well.
So here I am, writing my own blog! I hope you will enjoy reading my posts. You’ll most likely find topics on parenting and what I’ve learned from it so far, kids and parents in general, family, media, health, nutrition, being a “green” mom, vegetarianism, how to save money, and whatever topics that I hope you’ll find interest in. If I gave you even the tiniest tidbit of information that you found useful, then I’m happy. I promise to keep the posts clean and I welcome you to comment on my blog (just keep it clean too :))
