About Us

Welcome to Playground Ponderings! We are the heart and soul behind this blog: Abu Athiyyah, Irda, and our wonderful daughters, Athiyyah and Rumaysa. Our journey through the world of parenting has been an exciting adventure, full of surprises, laughter, tears, and above all, immense love. We’ve created this space to share our experiences and insights, hoping to connect with other parents and families navigating their own unique journeys.

Both Irda and I, have always been passionate about writing. It’s a medium that allows us to express our thoughts, emotions, and reflections, and it brings us immense joy to share these experiences with our readers. Our journey into parenthood has been a whirlwind of emotions, and through each challenge, victory, and memorable moment, we’ve learned valuable lessons about what it means to be parents.

Our eldest, Athiyyah, is a bundle of energy with a curiosity that never ceases. She has taught us about the wonders of seeing the world through a child’s eyes – every rock is a treasure, every bug a new friend. Our younger daughter, Rumaysa, is a sweet and sensitive soul, reminding us daily of the importance of kindness, patience, and the power of a good cuddle.

On Playground Ponderings, we share everything from practical parenting advice and insights into child development to fun activities that your kids will love. Every post we share is a piece of our journey, colored by our experiences and the unique joy that Athiyyah and Rumaysa bring to our lives.

We believe in creating a parenting community that supports, enlightens, and grows together. Through sharing our journey, we hope to bring comfort to parents going through similar experiences, and provide a platform for discussion about the triumphs and trials of raising children.

Parenting is a journey filled with unpredictable twists and turns, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. But through sharing and learning together, we can embrace the uncertainty and celebrate the unique moments that make parenting such a rewarding experience.

We welcome you with open arms to our Playground Ponderings community. Whether you’re a new parent or have years of experience under your belt, we hope our blog brings a smile to your face, sparks thoughtful conversation, and maybe even answers some of your burning parenting questions.

Join us in our Playground Ponderings, as we navigate this wonderful, chaotic, beautiful journey of parenting. Your insights, questions, and stories are always welcome here. After all, it’s the shared experiences and the wisdom of the community that makes the journey of parenthood a little bit easier and a lot more fun.
