The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Alia Hourani



Alia is a stay at home mom with one daughter, Hanna (2017) and a baby boy due in July (2019). She comes from a huge family on both sides, so loud dinners and get togethers are my thing! She is a native of Memphis and has a degree in Sociology and Women’s Studies from the University of Memphis. Go Tigers! She loves to go out to the occasional dinner and a movie, but quite frankly, is more of a homebody. Her guilty pleasure is getting in an episode of Judge Judy while eating some junk food in peace during nap time.

There is a .2 second rebound rate when going from getting cussed out in the passenger seat of the car for changing the radio station to singing along to “this ish is bananas, b.a.n.a.n.a.s” and that it is, my friend! My […]

Holidays After Losing My Mom Made Me Create Traditions
Traditions are so important. Not only are they rituals that can bring on the holiday spirit, but they also give your family a piece of you to hold on to when you are no longer able to join them around the table at dinner. My family lost my mother to cancer on October 25, 2011. […]
A Letter to My First Born
To My Darling Daughter,  I always knew that I wanted to be a mom. If your dad had on board with it, I would have had you three years sooner, but you were totally worth the wait. The day after I took my implant out, I stocked up on pregnancy tests. I was so anxious […]
