I am Anna and I am one third of this blogging trifecta. When Tasha brought up this idea of starting a blog with 3 different perspectives and in 3 different countries, I jumped on board as I think it’s a great forum for us to get to discuss ideas and also a great way for us to communicate with one another especially with our new roles as parents.
Parenting is such a huge topic and I think most of us try to be as good as our own parents and maybe aim to be even better. The world and our children throw us a few curves sometimes so we are challenged daily. I’m still learning everyday about what kind of parent I am and am becoming.
I live in Hong Kong now with my family and am a mother to 2 wonderful children. My daughter who I will refer to as S is a little over 2 years old and a son who I will refer to as A who is about to turn 1 soon. My parenting style is still to be determined, only because I had a certain ideal of what kind of parent I was going to be before my babies arrived. Then when reality hits, sometimes you just do what you need to do. I want my kids to be disciplined but I also want to encourage them to explore and be confident.
So in starting this blog, I am looking forward to discussing and learning from my friends, family and fellow parents out there.
