 Blog Roll

To be honest, I am really not the best person to be dishing out parenting advice since my idea of parenthood means letting my kids roam around the playground while I sit at the side enjoying my coffee.  Here are some blogs I go to for REAL parenting tips:

Cheekiemonkie is THE mother father of Singapore parenting blogs! Okay, I may be biased since Kelvin is someone I knew from my University days and the only person among my friends whom I knew had a parenting blog.  But not everybody can be author of a book and conduct month-long giveaways! So head over to Cheekiemonkie for some pro parenting advice… and giveaways (which I won once.. Yippee! So yes, I’m biased)

MummyEd was the second parenting blog I started reading (right after Cheekiemonkie) because as a struggling first-time SAHM, I googled for “Singapore SAHM blog” (or something like that) and found her blog and have been following it ever since.  Witty and wise, I see her as a SAHM senpai who offers sound parenting advice and great travel ideas with kids.
