My Mission

Play. Learn. Parent with intention and joy.

Parenting is hard sometimes. It’s my mission to teach parents how to practice self compassion and break free from expectations and thoughts that make it harder to have fun and connect!

Why? Because it’s all too easy to get caught up in the “shoulds”. I should send my kid to this school; I should make only organic food; I should take them to that new exhibit at the museum. Believe me, I’ve been there!

Here’s the thing – there’s no joy in the “shoulds”! They’re holding you — and your kids — back from so many rich experiences. It’s when you let go of the arbitrary rules that tell us how to be grown-ups that the magic happens.

I believe that you already have everything you need to parent in the beautifully unique way you’re meant to. I have the services, resources, and products to help you rediscover the parts of yourself that will bring you, your parenting style, and your family to life.

There’s so much good waiting for you, and I’m here to support your journey every step of the way.

My Story

Mom of three. Play advocate. Unapologetically imperfect.

Hi, I’m Jessica! Lover of fresh air, the written word, leafy greens, and the beautifully imperfect life I live with my three kids in Philadelphia.

What do I mean by beautifully imperfect? Well, sometimes it means pancakes for dinner twice in a week. But it always means following our curiosity and seeking joy, and giving myself grace for making mistakes along the way. Parenthood is a journey, bumps and all.

I’m a business owner because I’m a mom. Period. Those three little humans give me the purpose, strength, and inspiration to contribute to the world in my own way. And what a ride it’s been!

I went from being …
… an undergrad student of psychology, child development, and education
… an arts and crafts hobbyist
… part-time employee at the Please Touch children’s museum
… a bored stay-at-home mom
… and brought everything together into a dynamic, multi-faceted business that helps families connect and have FUN.

Whether I’m making toys [link], coaching parents [link], or brainstorming new ideas for family bonding [link], I’m always working from a place of love.

We all deserve compassion and support, especially when life feels hard.

Believe me, I get it. I’m a single mom on a tight budget, homeschooling all three of my kids. All while keeping my own passions alive and my mental health on track.

But that’s life, right? Messy. What matters is that you make it your own and make the most of it. We’re all learning the ropes. I say we do it together.

No matter where you are in your parenting journey, I have expertise and resources to get you on the right path. YOUR path. I’d love to learn more about you and your family — drop me a line and let’s chat!
