Hi! My name is Loralyn and I am a mom to two girls. Parenting is HARD and I’d love to support you in your parenthood journey!
A little bit about me. I am 34 and currently live in Silicon Valley, CA with my husband and two daughters. We previously called Nashville, TN home. I have master’s degrees in Industrial & Systems Engineering as well as Elementary Education, but I am currently a stay at home mom. I love to read and knit in my limited free time.
Now… what I can offer. I’m happy to talk to you about all things parenting, but these are a few ways I may be able to help.
1. Educational Baby/Toddler Activities
We do play-based educational activities every day at our house. I share ideas on Instagram so feel free to give us a follow! I’m happy to answer questions anytime and talk about WHY we do what we do. https://instagram.com/bandzlearningplay
We LOVE children’s books over here. According to ‘The Literacy Crisis: False Claims, Real Solutions’, the only behavior measure that correlates significantly with reading scores is the number of books in the home. I am also an Usborne Books & More consultant and would to talk to you about Usborne children’s books. You can join my Usborne Facebook Page here: www.facebook.com/groups/loralynsusbornebooknook/ and/or check out my website anytime here: https://n10187.myubam.com.
I am CONSTANTLY working on the playroom. I have seen how rearranging toys, toy storage, types of toys, and quantities of toys have changed the way we play. I am not an expert, but I am happy to share what I have read/heard and has worked for us. Our playroom doesn’t look like the beautiful instagram playrooms with all colorful open ended toys. Or the Montessori shelves that house beautiful new toys every week. But those types of playrooms have inspired me to use what we have to make something that works for us. You can also see more of what I share about our playroom on my instagram account. https://instagram.com/bandzlearningplay
4. Getting Help
I am happy to share where we turn for ideas/information on sleep, discipline, potty training, etc.
I look forward to hearing from you regarding whatever aspects of parenting you’re wanting to talk about! Feel free to shoot me an email as well at firstname.lastname@example.org.
