I’m excited to have you reading this and I hope that we will all be Growing Merrily together.


I’m Mama Tan, aka The Growing Mum, in this little online corner.  Totally in love and married to my dream guy.


We welcomed Sweet Butterfly, in the wee hours, on a silent night in Year 2011.  Her first loud wailing in that silent room still linger sweetly in my ear. And it continued at home.

Busy Bee arrived in the morning in Year 2014.  He had been busy bringing laughter to our family since his arrival.

Being a full-time working mum, I worked hard to balance family and work.  Praise God for blessing me with the strength to juggle my multiple roles.  Together with my hubby, we aim to raise our loves in a family filled with love and joy.


We are all growing in HIS hands.  I am learning the ropes of being a good mum, role model, teacher (and so much more).  Our loves motivate me to stay up late to read and learn.  Hence the name ‘The Growing Mum’.

I happily took on the Teacher role when Sweet Butterfly was just 1 month old.  Or rather I declared myself as one.

I spent lots of effort in our learning journey.  Loads of researching, reading, exploring and learning.  Our learning adventures were inspired by many various sources.  I’m sharing all these, in hope that you will be able to find some fun learning activities and resources for your little one.  Once awhile, I will share good educational tools or toys that I found.

Overtime , our learning adventures started to blur in my busy mind.  It’s time to photograph and document them.  The best way:  Blog it!

And because I’d blogged it, Busy Bee is benefiting from all my work.
