Moms who stick it out in the working world can relate: we want to parent our children as hands-on as we can while having a fulfilling career -- all without imploding upon ourselves. This blog captures my shifting priorities and I think I am finding my solution : it's all through play!
|Messy weekend play and more|
My experiments come from a pretty left-field mash-up of inspirations : through discovery of playful parenting principles, I steal ideas from Montessori, homeschooling, and yes, even life lessons from my job to make play ideas and thoughtful parenting work better for a corporate mom.
I have a demanding marketing career for a global company and I love using my talents everyday at my job. Whatever I can do in my little corner of the working world, I hope I can change what I can to make corporate culture more empowering. And I know I've got to be in the game for that.

Getting creative with these solutions also extends to our use of home space, which I capture here. So many principles talk about how the physical environment has a big role to play in child development. Cluttered home = scatterbrain mind. Ugly home = uninspired spirits. And let's face it, DIY homemaking is fun. It's my play too.

By spending a little time on this space, I hope you will find it well-spent, too. I am pretty selfish with my time, which means I value yours -- so I promise never to spam you with useless content and sell you stuff for no reason. I try posting on the blog weekly, but more often update on Instagram. I use Facebook mostly to share useful articles I find. You'll find different things in each platform.
Thanks for being here!
