Meet Fiona

Hi! I'm Fiona, founder of the Home Sweet Homes journal and planner for co-parents and child and now the latest All About Me, by Us journal made for any family to use.

I'm a former analyst turned creator and small business owner after finding a lack of resources and tools available to support the emotional wellbeing of young children after a separation or divorce.

As a single mom to a 7 year-old boy, this has been life's greatest privilege and journey - to be raising myself alongside him. I've stumbled, struggled and made mistakes, but through it all have learned, grown and loved deeper than I ever have.

After my son's dad and I separated, I remember experiencing a range of thoughts and emotions. I was stressed, anxious, and worried about my son having to adjust to the constant back and forth between homes. I felt sad to miss out on my son's day to day life. And, I also felt guilty for putting my son through this situation.

And so, I looked for any tools or products that could help those who co-parented but found there weren't a whole lot of solutions that existed - specifically geared toward young children.

Aside from therapy and children's books, there were co-parenting apps. Although they were helpful for adults, it wasn't a solution that directly involved children. I had this nagging feeling that I wanted to figure out a solution, I just had no idea what it was yet...

How the Home Sweet Homes Co-parenting Journal was Born

I consider creating the Home Sweet Homes journal to be a happy accident. In the midst of the pandemic, June 2020, I was at a dollar store and came across a mini planner which cost $2. I actually debated whether or not to buy it! On the days my 3 year-old was with me, I started writing in a summary of our day and asked my son's dad to do the same.

The first time my son came back with his journal filled out, I felt... right. I started involving my son in the process, helping him use the calendar to see his schedule and writing in our daily summary together.

My $2 purchase evolved to become a back-and-forth journal and planner which was so useful for all three of us that I wanted to create and design one specifically to help co-parents and their children facing the same problems we experienced.

In August, I began mocking the design, with one intention in mind; how to best support a child living in two homes. Finally in February 2021, after countless hours of brainstorming, writing, editing, and dreaming I had the first prototype of Home Sweet Homes in my hands.

Fast forward to today, Home Sweet Homes has helped over a thousand families. After several viral TikTok videos, many parents asked that I create a version any family can use and in 2023 I released the All About Me, by Us journal. I'm excited and honored to have created a tool that can I believe with my heart that has the capacity to change any parent-child relationship for life.
