Hi, I’m Susan, the author behind my blog at A Juggling Mom.
A Juggling Mom is a Singapore parenting and lifestyle blog where I chronicle the many roles that I play as a full time working mom. Being a mother has been one of the most gratifying and rewarding roles that I’ve come to embrace with open arms. But more than being just a mom, I also juggle between the many roles in my life like being a wife, daughter, sister, girlfriend and career woman. Hence, this inspired the name for my blog.
This blog was started in 2011 to share my motherhood journey as well as resources and information on topics that are close to my heart like parenting, marriage, health and fitness as well as activities for kids.
About my family
Alexis and I got married in 2006. When we told our friends back then that we knew each other from chatting online, more specifically on IRC, Singapore channel, we can see their eyes widen. We chatted online for 2 years before finally meeting.
Our first date was at Pasir Ris Park where we went inline skating and had McDonalds. After 5 years of courtship, we got married and enjoyed our 二人世界, travelling to countries like Japan, US and nearby countries like Malaysia and Bangkok.
3 years later on the National Day of 2009, we welcomed little Sophie into our lives. Needless to say, she’s been an absolute delight in our lives who has added much joy and laughter.
As much as we are teaching and imparting values to our little one, she too has been teaching us invaluable lessons which are priceless which is a reminder to see the world through a kid’s pair of untainted eyes.
In this little space of mine, I try to remember that I am more than a mom, but someone who has her own dreams, passion and interest. Some of them include fashion, crafting, photo taking, discovering new places and travelling.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope that you’ll visit often. Do drop me a note as I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us out here in cyberspace.
I would like my website/blog listed in ur blogroll, and I’m emailing to ask 🙂
Let me tell you about myself. I am mother to 4 (9, 7, 3, 1 yr old). I offer breastfeeding counselling, do lactation study and write freelance.
The reason for my website and breastfeeding-related blog is to create a community for real-life nursing mothers in singapore. If my background helps, that’s a bonus for mums, I think. But online support through emails, comments makes a huge difference . I host gatherings, community events (like this morning!! a get-together to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2011!). I don’t intend to fill my website with tons of breastfeeding information because that’s available on the web but I think Singapore mums nursing stories and a blog about working as a breastfeeding counsellor would be great.
Let me know, did you post anything on breastfeeding or expressing while working (I can’t find any previous posts?)
Take care, Anita Daubaras, mother, childbirth educator, breastfeeding counsellor, writer, all rolled into one
Ok, my website URL was wrong in my previous post. Here it is:
Hi Anita, sure. Although I have already stopped breast feeding by the time I started this blog, I did remember the bond and closeness I felt with Sophie whenever I breastfeed her. I’ll be glad to share your website to my readers who may be looking for support for breastfeeding 🙂

Nice! I like you in your yellow maternity dress. bright and cheery. I came to your blog because I was looking for information on the art and science museum. You blog has just introduced me to the world of mommy bloggers, and i am wowed. will visit again 🙂
Nice introduction! Great to know you! 🙂
Thanks for your blog posts on fibroids and your post op recovery. I chanced upon your blog when researching tips for recovering as its been just 7 days since my surgery. I can connect with several things that you have written about your conditions when you lived with fibroids. I am now most aptly able to connect with your post-surgery recovery woes as I’m currently in the middle of it!
I think it’s great that you have shared your experiences as 25% of us women suffer from fibroids and while there are lots of articles out there in the internet, connecting with someone whose been through this experience is a very real experience.
And lastly, I loved reading some of your posts on your life and your family. I do tend to blog infrequently, but just in case you would like to read at your leisure, my blogpost is called : https://flemingeat.wordpress.com/
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you’re recovering well post-op. I hope that the fibroids don’t bother you anymore and have a speedy recovery.
