Do you ever wish that kids came with a manual?

Do you sometimes feel that kids seem like aliens and you don’t know how to handle them?

  • They suddenly throw tantrums while you’re at the grocery store.
  • They get angry and shout for no apparent reason.
  • They don’t listen when you try to tell them something.
  • They don’t want to go to school and make an excuse to skip it.
  • They get anxious and don’t want to be separated from you.
  • They don’t pick up their toys and you end up tidying up after them.
  • They are glued to their gadgets and TV.
  • They don’t want to do homework.
  • They pick at their food and don’t want to eat their veggies.

And the list goes on and on…

Do you wish you had help?

My Mommy Journey deals with the ups and downs of parenting and gives tips and tricks to help you solve these daily parenting challenges.

The Site has parenting tips and lessons researched from experts on how to deal with our parenting struggles.

The Blog has more personal tips that I learned through my own parenting experience. These are my stories.

Both the site and blog will help you find solutions on how to make the best of this parenting journey.

Hi, I’m Ida! Welcome to My Mommy Journey!

I am an Interior Designer and Back-up Singer by profession turned full-time Mommy Blogger.

My own “mommy journey” started in my late 30’s. 

I was busy with my own interior design company but after 10 years, I closed it down.

Why? I wanted to be a mother. 

I was turning 40 and the clock is definitely ticking.

After several rounds of infertility treatments, my husband and I decided to do IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) in Taiwan.

It was no walk in the park!

I was pricked with countless injections and blood extractions daily and ingested bagfuls of medications. Not to mention the daily transvaginal ultrasounds (Sorry too much info!) and acupuncture needles summed up how desperate I was to be a mom.

After 1 failed IVF round and then doing FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer) on our 2nd round, we finally became pregnant!

We were going to have twin boys, woohoo! 

But Twin A lost its heartbeat at 9 weeks in utero. We named him Pio Joseph. What a heartbreak!

Finally, at age 42, I became a mommy. We had a beautiful baby boy named Joshua Michael

My difficult journey to becoming a mother is the reason why I am so passionate about parenting. 

I only have 1 child and that means I will only go through this parenting journey once. I don’t want to bungle it.

Parenting is full of ups and downs and I document them through my blog in hopes of helping other moms who experience the same might learn from my own parenting experiences.

I share my true-to-life parenting stories where you can draw takeaways from my “Aha!” moments and mistakes.

My Mommy Journey deals with the ups and downs, tips and tricks, joys and pains, challenges and rewards of parenting.

I hope this site will be able to help you along in navigating this strange world called “Parenthood.”
