I was told, “children turn parents’ lives upside down” by many “experts” while I was pregnant. It was a completely different story before that, but the moment you announce you are pregnant, everyone starts to advise you to “enjoy these last quiet moments”. Being obnoxiously positive-minded, I never took these in a pessimistic way. Life changes, responsibilities increase, and love grows and intensifies. Especially the responsibility of raising another human being as a healthy, happy and good person is immense. This is a very different path than the path I traveled before kids and I learn so many new and good things.
When establishing this blog, I initially planned to share tips and tricks that might make the lives of “working mothers” a little bit easier and help them save on time which is very valuable when you have kids. Then I thought to myself why do I limit to only “working mothers” (i.e. working-a-paid-job or self-employed mothers). Because I’ve experienced first hand what being a stay-at-home mom is like as well, both ways require as much diligence.
I dedicate this blog to all mothers (and grandmothers, fathers, aunts and caregivers) who strives to stay happy and sane while keeping all the different hats they’re wearing (mom, wife, employee, business owner, sister, daughter, aunt, friend etc.) on. I love to share my blog with fathers and grandfathers as well.
I have to admit I didn’t have to discover the New World all over again. As much as I insist that I know better because I’ve read it somewhere, I came to accept that “my mom knows best”. She is my guiding light, not only with her advice but also with the way she raised me. She is a role model for all working moms out there. She is a pharmacist, a gourmet chef, caterer, teacher, cleaning guru and a magician.
Without further due, enjoy my blog and my journey!
