My name is Tayna Frett and I married my high school Sweetheart Marshall almost 20 years ago. After years of trying, we were blessed with 2 wonderful boys - Justice is 6 and Malachi is 20 months (going on 21 years old). That baby, whew! I am a Senior Vice President by day and a wife and mother of our 2 amazing boys by day, afternoon, night, and everything in between. While my professional job has a clear start and end time – my responsibilities as a mother and wife never end and honestly I don’t know how I’d survive going forward if they ever did.

These two boys give me LIFE! While they came from the same two parents, our kids are very different and we parent accordingly. The key for us is remembering they are little people, little versions of us. Of course they have needs but they also have opinions and personalities and curiosities. We are Seventh Day Adventist Christians and we worship with our kids each night. It’s important for our kids to know that there is an authority higher than Mommy and Daddy and to know that we all have a purpose in life. We want them to understand reverence, the power of prayer, and ultimately how to recognize and acknowledge the blessings in your life and give thanks for them.

It’s important that our boys enjoy their childhood and be well balanced. We recognize our responsibility in ensuring that our kids grow up to be God-fearing children who are also productive, independent, and contributing members of society. I look forward to working with and contributing to BabyBrownSugar. I can only share with you what works for me and my family, but hopefully my experience and perspective can shed some light on what you may be dealing with and if not, at least get you to smile or laugh at the shenanigans that sometimes happen in the Frett household!
