The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource




Yasmin is a Southern newbie. Raised in the United Arab Emirates to a Californian mom and Syrian dad, she is a typical third culture kid (adult?). She graduated with a B.Sc. in Computer Information Systems in 2001, spent eleven years in the corporate world, and escaped before the nylons were permanently grafted into her skin. Yasmin is a mom to two (Jul 2012, Sep 2014) and wife to one (Mar 1981). She knows a little about a lot, is a founding member of the Institute for Overanalysis Paralysis, and is addicted to reading reviews and sharing awesome finds. She enjoys building IKEA furniture, pilates and barre classes, following cookbooks, and taking things apart.

Trader Joe’s Meal Hacks: Faking the “I TOTALLY meal plan” Vibe
Now that we have a Trader Joe's, it's time for some meal hacks. I'd start this with an ode to the quirky store, but that's been done, and if you know - then you know. Also, the word "hack" generally means you're in a hurry and don't wanna scroll through some clever prose. Each meal […]

Love Letters from Mom :: La Croix
Dear La Croix, For months, I lusted after you from afar. Living overseas meant we were behind on many of the new goodies the U.S. market pumped out daily (it took years before they could get still-edible Halo Top over to the desert). But your gaudy cans started popping up in my feed. You were […]
