Someday I hope to have Aria’s confidence 🥰 #DoveKidsPartner I am so stinking proud of how she’s handled starting kindergarten but I know it comes with social pressures, even at the tender age of 5. Kids can be critical of themselves and how they look as young as this stage so it’s amazing to see these daily little encouragements come from her own mouth 🥺 (It also helps these cute new @babydovecare bath products have affirmations right on the bottle so we can practice during bathtime. Aria & Ez are OBSESSED with the slime wash. It’s been a great way to get them excited to hop in the bath quickly 🧼) #DoveKidsDailyAffirmations #DoveKids #DoveKidsCare #BackToSchool #Parenting

I had my first anxiety attack in high school. At its worst, I was having 1-2 per month about 8 years ago. I thought they magically went away after I had Aria but after a particularly bad trigger last month, I had one of the worst attacks I’ve ever had where I wondered if this would be how I die, collapsed on the floor and choking on my own spit, unable to breathe because of this invisible boa constrictor squeezing my lungs shut for what felt like an hour. Maybe it was perfect timing that my first therapy session was scheduled shortly thereafter, considering I would always convince myself that I was “ok enough” to not burden the expense for now. I don’t have the perfect words to say for #worldmentalhealthday but what I will say is that therapy is something that is currently helping me and that we all carry scars with us. Some are visible but most aren’t. We’ve been taught to hide when we struggle or not to ask for help but is there any other way to heal other than just being vulnerable and terrified and brutally honest? If you are struggling, know that help is available and you are SO NOT ALONE. If you know someone who is struggling, check in on them and ask if they are ok. Even if you think they are the perfect ones who always seem to have everything together, just asking can make all the difference 🥲 Resources for immediate help: • Suicide Prevention Lifeline: call 800‑273‑8255 or text 838255 • Domestic Violence Hotline: call 800‑799‑7233 • Crisis Text Line: Text SIGNS to 741741 for 24/7, anonymous, free crisis counseling • Disaster Distress Helpline: call or text 1-800-985-5990 • California Warm Peer Line: (24/7 non-emergency support with a peer counselor) 855‑845‑7415

Happy Chuseok! This Korean Thanksgiving I am especially grateful for the ability to share my love and pride for my Korean heritage, especially with my children. Being born in the US with almost no other Asians around me left me having to fight for my cultural identity for years. I was constantly bullied for the food I ate, the shape of my eyes, and even the texture of my hair, but I will never forget the comfort of coming home to a warm bowl of miyeokguk with a bowl of rice and feeling so happy to know that this was OUR family ️ I also have to give the biggest shoutout to the artisan Korean jewelry and traditional accessories company @nas.naschenka who sent me this sterling silver & coral hair pin, brooch, and jade norigae (traditional Korean pendant worn on a hanbok) and I have no words for how much I cherish these pieces. My heart flutters every time I look at them. If you’re curious how they are made, check out my stories! It’s pretty mesmerizing 🤲 Photo: @ben.ja.mins Dress: @danha.official #chuseok #hanbok #hanbokphotoshoot

Today I spent a few minutes flopping around shirtless with a measuring tape, trying to get my measurements to put into a bra calculator. Now typically, bra calcs will look at my dimensions and fritz out because apparently my body DOES NOT COMPUTE which is really great for my self esteem, but this calc was the one recommended by the /abrathatfits subreddit so I went into it with hope. After feeling a bit ridiculous wondering how the post-breastfeeding 🫒🫒 were even supposed to be calculated (do you push the nips in first? In the leaning over measurement do you measure to the lowest bit of the pendulum? Have things changed after two kids and weight redistribution?) All that to say, TIL US bra sizes are not standard and my official UK bra size is a 26D now and I’m just as “A-cup” as I ever was. So I guess if you were ever teased or bullied as a kid for looking like a “boy” or being “flat as a pancake” like me, just go to /abrathatfits and rediscover your secret D’s then come back and ask me what my favorite bras for itty bitties are because girl have I got opinions Who else has ever been teased about your chest size and are you currently wearing the correct bra size? : @kassiaphoy

I know the day’s been long and they need to get to bed but just a few more minutes of this please 🥺 We got home late and Ben caught me being a human chair to some sleepy kids instead of brushing their teeth, but honestly I didn’t care to rush it. They’ve been going through so many changes lately with kindergarten and growth spurts and moving homes over and over and it makes me look back and wonder how did all this happen so quickly? I still remember their first giggles and bites of solid food and first wobbly steps. When Ezra crawled into my lap and buried his face into my shoulder and Aria followed suit, I just wanted to stay like that forever, feeling their warmth and remembering that these are the perfect moments of parenting. Not the edited instagram feed and milestones but those minutes in the quiet when all that exists is a love thicker than you ever imagined right here in your arms.

I went for the big chop! Eeeee!! Who guessed right? I asked for a shag-lob which @nikkilee901 & I affectionately dubbed the “Shlob” so feel free to ask your stylist for one but be prepared for some confused looks and maybe not the hair you were expecting We donated my hair to @beyoutiful_foundation which makes wigs for women with cancer and it has been filling my heart up SO much. If any of y’all with long hair want to donate long hair, this is for sure the place to send it to @nikkilee901 @ninezeroone #longhair #haircutsforwomen #asianhairstyle #asianhair #hairstylesforwomen #hairtransformation #hairbeforeandafter #lob #shaghaircut

Her first day of kindergarten is here and I swear my heart just about beat completely out of my chest. I just can’t stop thinking of how quickly this day came and how my nerves were 10x worse than hers as I held her hand in line, the excited girl about to start a new adventure. Meanwhile, I was having flashbacks to her first daycare drop off where I waited until I was safely in the car to shed a few anxious tears One bit of parenting wisdom that has always stuck with me is that our job is to aim the arrow, and R E L E A S E. As a piece of my heart walked into that school building without me, I’m reminded that sometimes the second half can be the hardest part. To all my fellow parents out there sending our kids off over these next few weeks, I’m thankful we are in this together sharing the absolute roller coaster that is guiding toward the target and releasing the arrow Now comes the determination and faith knowing that they’ve got this (and so have we!) ️ Who else is having their first days of school this week? #firstdayofschool #parenting #firstdayofkindergarten #firstdayofschooloutfit

So thankful that you have always been my rock when the world feels like it’s spinning, and my shoulder to shamelessly cry on when I need it. I’ve needed it a lot lately. Also, you cook really yummy Korean food and put out that fire I made in the kitchen that one time I love you always @ben.ja.mins : @ashilykimphoto @davidtvophoto

Here is your sign to take a breath from the burdens you are carrying for everyone else and remind yourself that it’s ok to have someone listen to you. In fact, you NEED it. You are not impenetrable but you are strong and in order to keep being strong you need to listen when your body tells you to rest. You know you always put yourself on the back burner so maybe it’s time to tell someone so they can be your advocate. You are an advocate for others so you deserve that too, remember? It’s good to cry sometimes, even when you don’t know why you are crying. Don’t feel guilty for feeling too much. Don’t feel guilty for feeling numb. You’re going through a lot. Some days you’re not going to be okay and that’s okay. A few days ago Ben randomly asked me if I was okay and I burst into tears. I had no idea why. Before I had kids I used to be so good about processing how I was F E E L I N G and talking through it but now so much depends on me holding it together for everyone else that I don’t even realize I’m struggling until my body breaks down. What is this pain in my shoulders? Why do I keep having migraines? Why do I keep waking from nightmares? I struggle with perpetual imposter syndrome. When are they going to notice I’m really not worthy? When is everything going to fall apart because I’m not strong enough? But today I woke up and put on some makeup and a nice outfit. I got the kids to school and worked out. And even while fighting through tears to write this, I refuse to feel guilty about being honest, that sometimes I feel broken and my anxiety lies to me. I’m still not 100% but each day I’m taking it step by step and it’s helping : @kassiaphoy #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

#ad I get an odd satisfaction from seeing people tidy up their spaces, is it just me? 🧹🧺🧽 I’m not gonna lie, with two under 5 our place is usually scattered with toy cars, princess castles, and a mind-boggling number of discarded socks 🧦 (HOW are there so many random socks???) so this QUICK weekly cleanup keeps us from stubbing our poor adult toes🦶in the danger zone ️ Every household has their resident toe-stubber and that person is @ben.ja.mins so we’re really just making sure the floor is squeaky clean, like literally killing 99.9% germs & smelling amazing, for the next time he falls down there @cloroxscentiva #CleanWithMe *Use as directed

The best thing about growing up with a sister like @linda.justme is that she was ALWAYS the first to stick up for me when I was bullied (unless the one picking on me was her!) 🤣 Happy #nationalsisterday to a loving mother, uplifting wife, and one of the smartest and most hardworking bosses I know. You will forever be my favorite sister

Happiest. Place. On. Earth. There might be no better feeling than experiencing something you loved as a child with your kids for the first time. Simple rides breathed new life just from watching their excited eyes taking it all in. My feet are as sore as my face is from laughing so much and all I can say is staying all day from morning until night was soooo much more worth it than I expected 🥰 Proud of them for making it through and proud of us for pulling it off! @ben.ja.mins @esthersoyunpark @paulochun @disneyland #happiestplaceonearth #disneyland

Grow bigger but never stop giving the biggest squeezes, ok? 🥺 Happy Birthday to the wittiest, cuddliest charmer who came out of the womb with a huge grin. 3 years with you has given us the kind of belly laughs that make permanent eye crinkles and I would NEVER want it any other way. Thank you for being the best son and having your big smile be my favorite part of each morning. My 3 year old!!!!! 🤯 Ages (nearly)3, 2, 1, 100 days, and 5 days old
