About

A quick intro

Hi! I am Linda, a Singapore expat mom with boy-girl twins who were born in 2015 (at 37 weeks through an elective C section), the year of the sheep. I started this blog shortly after my twins’ 1st birthday to chronicle my twin parenting journey.

Some of the information in this blog is Singapore specific, while other posts document my adventures and struggles with raising rambunctious toddlers.

If you have any questions or suggestions for future posts, you can reach me through the form in the Contact section.
