Thanks for joining me!
This is my first post. I relate a bit of history and why I’m motivated to start this blog. Eventually when I’m successful I’d want to come back to this post.
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Hello, I’m Connie, a working mother living in the very cosmopolitan city of Singapore.
Being a native of a tiny island that has progressed in an astronomical manner in the last sixty years, I can describe life in Singapore as a mixed bag of traditional and modern.
In terms of businesses embracing tech and the internet, we are trailing only Hong Kong.
In terms of standards of living, I would say we are on par with or have even surpassed Hong Kong.
Our modern day public transportation networks mostly work, we have potable water from the tap and over 90% of us have a roof over our heads. In terms of quality of life, we definitely are pretty far down the line.
It’s getting incredibly expensive to live in Singapore so usually young parents wind up employed in full-time jobs and their children get looked after by grandparents, domestic helpers or infant care, in that order.
My goal is to be a stay at home mom
I’m a working mother right now with a 2 year old. He goes to full day child care, a centre that we had handpicked after making our rounds to at least 5 in the neighborhood. This is our centre of choice for there is great flexibility in the school policy and more importantly they have my child’s needs in mind.
I started teaching my son when he was 3 months old so that he stays ahead in the realm of academic development. My objective is for him to know much in advance of the general school curriculum so that if he does go to school, school followed by life is going to be his playground. He is 2.5 years old now. I’m at the point where I realized it is far tougher to teach values and build character so I’m focusing on these.
With a passive stream of income. I hope this website helps me achieve that while I take full reins caring for my children in their formative years.
Who this blog is for
My readers are likely working moms and dads who have found online articles impractical, full of theories sometimes written by people who aren’t parents in the first place. My objective for this blog is for it to a thoughtful, well-written, at times sarcastic, authoritative source of information, guidance and advice for all parents and caretakers.
A quote to set my gears in motion:
Success is nothing more than a few disciplines practiced every day. — Jim Rohn
The key is to consciously apply discipline to one thing at a time and continue that way until your big tasks for each day are complete.
Wish me luck!
