Mum's Not the Word - Call Me Mommy!

I have lived in England for almost eight years. I embrace and useBritish English in my daily life but I don’t have a British accent.I’m not one of those Americans that attempt to affect a Britishaccent, but instead sound scary and frankly ridiculous. I’m also notnaturally susceptible to accents. Yes, my intonation has changed and Isay isn’t it and doesn’t it rather than ask a questionoutright (this used to annoy me but I’ve succumbed!) but all in all thesound of my voice is still pretty much…See More

But I still have these occasional lightning bolt moments when Iemerge from the hectic sea of my day, draw in air and see my amazingopportunity and responsibility as a mother come clearly into focus.Read more at…See More

Going against the grain - Opting for Fetal Monitoring rather than Induction at 42 Weeks Pregnant

Like a hesitant child, I dangle my feet in midair off the side of the hospital bed and feel slightly out of my depth. I’m not a child though; I’m 42 weeks pregnant and in keeping with my decision to go with the flow, am at the hospital for my first session of daily fetal monitoring.I slowly take in the whir of unfamiliar bleeps, pulses and machinery and hope that I’m doing the right thing. I hope when they hook me up their not going to detect something is awry with baby, who thus far appears…See More

WordPress Blog

Hi,I'm in the process of building a new website, driven through WordPress but I'm not the most technically savvy. I want this new site to host my blog, currently at Blogger, as well as some of my other writing projects. I've managed to migrate over the posts from my blog but am a bit confused about how to add applications, photos etc as well as multiple pages through the WordPress dashboard. It doesn't seem very user friendly but it's also all new to me. I know there are tutorials out there to…See More

Due Date Tomorrow but No News Yet....

I just finished my second cup of raspberry leaf tea for the day. I read about its uterine stimulating qualities in one of my pregnancy updates and kept meaning to buy some. I didn’t get around to it until earlier this week, so hopefully I’m not too late to reap its supposed rewards!I know that less than 4% or so of babies are born on their due date. Still, I can’t help the emotional and mental attachment I’ve developed about tomorrow....it has been my lighthouse on the horizon, the destination…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a 32 year-old American living in London with my British husband and mom to two spirited little rascals. My life as a parent is, surprise surprise, a complete roller coaster.

My blog is a collection of random musings of an expat parent on a continual learning curve who is trying to do mama-hood justice while not losing herself in the process.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Keep it real! I believe knowledge is power but ultimately people need to pick and choose what works best for them - blogging is the perfect vehicle for sharing wisdoms, generating healthy debate and creating understanding.
