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.

Mum's Not the Word - Call Me Mommy!

Posted on June 19, 2010 at 6:27pm 0 Comments

I have lived in England for almost eight years. I embrace and use

British 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 British

accent, but instead sound scary and frankly ridiculous. I’m also not

naturally susceptible to accents. Yes, my intonation has changed and I

say isn’t it and doesn’t it rather than ask a question

outright (this used to annoy me but I’ve… Continue

Big Boots to Fill

I got my first Mother’s Day card on Sunday from LLC. Because I’m now a

mom, I really am.

You might be thinking, duh – that has been what you prepared for

through ten months of pregnancy. That has been the bread and butter of

this blog. And LLC was born nearly seven weeks ago!

I know. But I still have these occasional lightning bolt moments when I

emerge from the hectic sea of my day, draw in air and see my amazing

opportunity and… Continue

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

Posted on January 22, 2010 at 5:09pm 0 Comments

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… Continue

Due Date Tomorrow but No News Yet....

Posted on January 7, 2010 at 1:50pm 0 Comments

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 has been my lighthouse on the horizon, the… Continue
