I created a Modern Mom Blog in the fall of 2016 as a place to share our family adventures. At the time my husband and I were trying to figure out the whole parenting thing with our little toddler. My husband loved to take pictures and I loved writing about our day to day life, so the blog became a little family hobby that we all enjoyed.
After just a few posts, I started getting tons of questions from other moms. It seems our life is a bit more interesting to others than I realized. People wanted to know what it was like to balance my career as a doctor with motherhood and how we took our son to five star restaurants and still had a good time and why my son had been on over one hundred flights by the time he was four. Friends, family, and strangers were asking me so many questions about my parenting style and methods, that I decided to start writing about how I parent, discipline, teach, and enjoy our rowdy little toddler all while having a successful career.
Six months into blogging my article entitled “Two Words to Prevent Toddler Tantrums” went viral on Pinterest, which resulted in over one hundred thousand visitors coming to my blog during the month of January 2017. I was flooded with questions and comments about “Parenting with Key Phrases“. That’s what sparked my idea to start a monthly series dedicated to the key phrases I’ve naturally incorporated in to our days that help me take care of my son. Practically overnight my little family blog morphed into a parenting blog with a lot of visitors!
Let me be clear. I’m no parenting expert, but I do have a unique view on parenting and I’m a solid example of balancing a high stress career with parenting. We definitely have our good days and our bad days, so don’t be fooled. It’s not all perfect moments, but I do enjoy sharing the parenting skills I’ve learned, adapted, and created. I hope you will find them useful.
Whether you’re just dropping by the blog for some quick parenting advice or have been following my blog from the beginning, thank you SO much for reading and supporting A Modern Mom Blog. We are so glad you are here!
