I cook clean yell at kids work clean repeat & I AM ALL ABOUT EFFICIENCY
I am a mom from Vancouver, BC that juggles my time between my husband (who usually keeps himself entertained), my son, my aging parents, crafts, and getting in shape (by now, I have no time left for this).
I am Chinese but not a tiger mom but I plan to make use of the feather duster if my son needs discipline beyond time outs. Yes, if you know what I’m talking about, you must be chinese as well… and from my generation. I follow a lot of my mom’s old traditional ways in terms of raising my son and basically life. I don’t have saran wrap around my remote control though.
I write mostly about 3 things – my husband, Patch’s, “antics” (whom I love dearly but I write about him instead of nagging him keeps our marriage intact), parenting and cooking. I love to cook but I (like my husband) have a problem following instructions. I always think I can improve on a recipe and believe that everyone can make their recipe their own.
Here is my parenting philosphy – I have none. I do many things that makes some moms cringe or roll their eyes at me. I sometimes go overboard with adoration towards my son or putting fear in him to keep him in line.
I started a Facebook page in December 2013. Please take a look and LIKE it! I’m still in the process of learning how to playing around with it.
Why have The Hub’s Edition?
My husband is a smart man, successful professional and the best father one could be to our children.
However, once he comes home from work, he hangs up his jacket along with his common sense.
Because of the fact that he’s a respected professional in public, he finds it insulting when I point out the stupid things he does at home. That’s just what it is, stupid things, but it doesn’t change what a great father he is. And it’s not like he’s stupid like an idiot. He values his time so much to a point where he takes a lot of short cuts. Spending a few seconds to look for something in the pantry and not as worthwhile as going out to buy it (hence, why we have 3 boxes of kosher salt that has been used once in each).
And he doesn’t understand that. So I write here instead of telling him. And life is better at home and our relationship is better now.
I get a lot of bloggers liking and following my blog, please don’t hesitate to come say hi so that I know you’re not an evil bot planning world domination.
