I always said it's so much easier when my 3 kiddos were toddlers because I can at least make the choices for them. <sigh> I can only imagine that it'll get tougher as it gets closer, but know that you have friends that will lend an ear if you need to just cry it out. I'm always a phone call or a drive away. Hang in there, mama! 
I am quite envious of those people who claim that older children are "easier" than babies and toddlers as they either have some pretty easy teenagers with easy-breezy issues or they're big, fat, lying mc-liarpants. Either way, it doesn't seem to be the case with me and my own teens and I am ...

Editor of Chicagonista | Co-hosts at Chicagonista LIVE! show
Introduction
Editor of Chicagonista
http://www.Chicagonista.com

Creator of City Connect Media
http://www.CityConnectMedia.com

Talk Show Co-host:
Chicagonista LIVE!



My Full profile:

I am the editor of Chicagonista and the creator of City Connect Media, Inc. (CCMI) that owns and operates Chicagonista.com and other city sites including TheChicagoMoms.com. Under CCMI I created Chicagonista LIVE!, the first live-streamed online talk show in Chicago, with co-host and broadcast journalist Nancy Loo and new media personality Beth Rosen.

Our interactive #ChicagonistaLIVE show boast a 4.7M Twitter impression during the one hour of the show and has broadcasted live from Chicago’s famous landmarks such as Willis Tower (aka Sears Tower), John Hancock Observatory, Harry Caray’s on Navy Pier, McCormick Place, Hawthorne RaceCourse, Vienna Beef, went live on the main stage of The Chicago Auto Show, The Home & Housewares Show, The National Restaurant Show, and many more... 

The show and myself has been featured in many traditional TV and On-Print media outlets including CBS Chicago, NBC Chicago, Fox News, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, WBEZ 91.5, and more. I am also a frequent segment contributor for the Windy City LIVE, an ABC Chicago affiliate daily morning TV talk show. 

Before professionally blogging, I once traveled extensively for the fashion industry and made rapport between major department stores and a New York based designer brand. There I got to dabble and write about Fashion reports and compare trends among current designer brands. When the kids came along I started writing about Chicago fashion and now turned Chicagonista.com in to a Chicago lifestyles & trends site where I dig out and scour great places/events for Chicagoans or as we love calling ourselves, Chicagonistas! I also keep updated on the newest and greatest on social media and tech. My love in fashion and technology suddenly became one.

Just recently I launched Women Driving Excellence with my good friend and ChicagonistaLIVE co-host Beth Rosen. It is a grassroots community using multimedia platforms featuring inspiring women who help start, accelerate, fuel, and steer others to excellence. We successfully launched this in a big way taking over Women’s Day at the Chicago Auto Show honoring local Chicago women trailblazers and even partnered up with the Chicago Tribune, RedEye, and Cars.com and landed major media exposures for this one. We hope to bring this to other cities too.

I was one of the panelists in Google’s “Mothers Know Tech” and since then has spoken in many other blogging conferences. I am also listed in the “75 Top Twitter Tips from Today’s Small Business Moms” found in American Express OPEN / Small Business website. I also instructed “Hands on Small Business” – Social Media class series with Microsoft Office Live and Kirtsy and you can even find me in a new book “Power Moms” – The New Rules for Engaging Mom Influencers Who Drive Brand Choice.

I also hosts the annual Brands & Bloggers Summit with SocialRevUp in Chicago attended by about 200 professional bloggers nationwide. 

and last but not least,

I'm a mom of 3, and a proud American raised Filipina married to a Chinese-American living in the beautiful city of Chicago.
