Raising a child is fun, crazy and challenging. It's a wild ride- one that doesn't involve a lot of sleep but is super rewarding when they laugh or want to hold your hand.
My son is a little sponge- he has been going to the library since he was a baby and his sense of wonder has been cultivated by his grandma (a preschool teacher- yes we hit the jackpot). As a family, we wanted his childhood to be filled with language, culture and discovery. He is an avid reader, cautious adventurer and loves to taste every ingredient while his grandma is cooking.
I wanted to fill his life with toys, books and fun items that reflect our life. Traveling abroad, we would load up our suitcases with books and toys that are not readily accessible at home. He drinks up language and I found it challenging to ensure that he could hear, see and experience his secondary language- one that I only speak partially but that his dad speaks fluently. I wasn't raised in a dual language household but always wanted to raise my child differently. He also loves seeing his culture in everyday life and so having toys around that reflect this are important to us.
And so, my side hustle was born. I have been searching and finding great toys, books and other fun items that he loves and hope you will as well.
