Hello, all! As I embark on my first steps in the wonderful world of blogging, I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about who I am and why I am beginning this new journey. Let me begin by explaining to you that as I write this, I am consumed by nerves; from both excitement and fear of, well, failure. I have never, ever been a risk-taker. I am a “play it safe” woman who has always had a stable job, with a stable salary. I don’t bet or gamble. I don’t invest in crazy items. I play it safe. "Safety first!" This situation, however, differs because I don’t so much see this as a risk, I rather think of this as an opportunity. I have listened to my intuition and strongly feel that this is something I am truly meant to do….
Entering my mid-thirties, I am a certified teacher and mommy to my amazing 1.5 year old son, Hudson. Before having him, my life revolved around work. I loved (and don’t get me wrong, I still love) my job, however since having him, priorities have changed and my frame of mind is very different from pre-baby. (I’m sure some/most of you moms and dads out there can relate?) Working so much and being away from my son is very hard. I have spent many nights brainstorming in the wee hours about how I can be at home with my son more, while still providing for our family. While commuting to work once my maternity leave ended, I listened to the voice of Brendon Buchard, an American NY times best-selling author, motivational speaker, and online marketing mogul. He engrained in my mind that I could become an expert in anything I wanted (within reason, of course), to always be aware of what people are telling me that I am good at, and listen to them. The timing could not have been more perfect for me. At the time that Brendon’s voice was speaking to me over and over again, both in my car and in my mind, I had been approached by several fellow moms for help. These moms were complete strangers that I had met at the park and in a children’s clothing store. They complimented me on how my son was dressed and asked for tips, tricks, and help on what to buy for the upcoming spring/summer season. I had heard from friends and family that I had a knack for dressing Hudson fashionably, but those people were “just” friends and family. Maybe they were just being nice, right? The more I spoke to people about the moms seeking help from me, the more people opened up to me and agreed that I definitely had an eye for dressing babies and toddlers. Great! Sounds like something fun and unexpected to become an expert in…but now what?
Well, say hello to Childish Fashion; the “project” that I have been working on for a few months now.
Ultimately, my goals are to help busy moms and dads out there who are interested in quality and trendy baby, toddler, and kid clothing. I want to teach (I love teaching, hence becoming a teacher) my tips and tricks and money saving ideas. I want to motivate people to buy things that your children will be thanking you for later on! Trust me, I am a deal-finder and very rarely purchase items for my son at regular price. I’ll teach you how to create basic, simple wardrobes with surprisingly very few items. I want to inform you on how to mix and match these items to always create a new outfit that looks like you have tried really hard, when in fact you have not. If there is anything I can ever help you with, or if you have any related questions, I want to be that go-to person for you.
I hope to inspire people to use the very little time left at the end of the day in order to add that “wow, where did you get that outfit from?” at the park factor!
I genuinely know that your kids will thank me later.
