We've often heard of all the benefits of having our children master more than one language, but what’s the most effective way to do this without causing a speech delay or confusion? Today we chat with Grace Wong, also known as @speechtherapymom on Instagram, a bilingual speech expert who will give us her take on the best way to raise bilingual babies.
We say it often... the days are long, but the years are so darn short! Before you know it your tiny baby is sitting by themselves or walking around and playing by themselves.

Today we want to remind you that those moments, those struggles, those baby giggles and that newborn scent won't last forever...
Sending your child to daycare or school for the first time comes with a backpack full of mixed emotions! The whole process could be complicated and emotional for both the child and the mother.

We’ve all heard the term “Mom Goals” all over social media...this usually refers to a mom who’s just killing it at motherhood, at being a wife or in general killing it in life, as if it were a game. A woman who just seems to have it all together. But… what exactly are those Mom Goals that we aspire to reach? And, are we setting realistic goals for ourselves? Today, we open up about what we admire in other moms and what we hope to accomplish this year.
A happy and healthy mommy is the most important thing we can offer to our children. But how do we actually start a “healthy journey” when we have so much on our plate? This can sound overwhelming, unattainable, and sometimes even…unappealing. In this episode Mary Gamarra joins us to talk about how she is committed to healing through nutrition and mindfulness, and how we can start regardless of what moment we’re in of our lives.
