The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Jocelyn Lee



Jocelyn moved to Memphis in 2015 with her husband, not knowing a soul. Now, it’s as if she has always lived here! Jocelyn is a first generation Asian-American who was born in California, grew up overseas (Thailand), and moved back to the States in middle school. After leaving home (Maryland) for college in the south (Georgia), Jocelyn hasn’t left the south and her childhood friends claim she has a southern accent. Currently, Jocelyn is a School Social Worker who spends most of her time helping little + big humans navigate how to be healthy humans in this world (and all the highs and lows that come with it). She is also on her own journey of discovering what it means to be an introvert and a mom. Jocelyn and her husband welcomed Charlotte (2018) to their family and are in awe of how much fun it is and how crazy it can be to raise a little human. When she’s not working, Jocelyn can be found in fuzzy socks doing a puzzle, enjoying alone time at a coffee shop, scouring Target’s Dollar Spot for things she definitely doesn’t need, and cheering on the Memphis Grizzlies.

Then life happened, and I never really found myself going over there much. But then Sweet Noshings opened their second location 5 minutes from […]
I Want to Mom Like the Grizz
If you live in Memphis, chances are pretty high that you've been to at least one Memphis Grizz basketball game. And if you've been paying any attention lately, you may have heard that our point guard, Ja Morant, just got announced as a 2022 NBA All-Star starter. When I moved here in 2015, it was […]
A Letter to the Magic Making Mom
Dear Magic Making Mom, Tis the season to make things magic. I see you, out here on these holiday streets making it happen! The decorating. The classroom parties. The thank you presents. The coordinating outfits. The gifts for everyone (including your in-laws). The holiday card addressing. The grocery store shopping. The tablescaping. The recipe gathering. […]

Friday Favorites (Travel Edition)
Spring Break will be here before we know it! Are you traveling with your kids? I used to travel a lot pre-pandemic/pre-parenthood. I had my packing down to a science and I zipped my way through security without a care in the world. Then I became a parent and then I had to take my […]

Life Lessons from my Four Year Old
One of the fascinating things about raising a child is discovering new ways of being human and self-expression that I have never considered for myself. The audacity, the autonomy, and the sheer determination are admirable and inspiring life lessons (and a journey to parent, but that's for another blog post). I have been watching my […]
