What I want to say…


IMG_4395I already know that this journey comes with a lot of moments that I would not classify as “kodak moments”.  The journey prior to my daughter’s  arrival was not an easy one… but that is behind us now. There are difficult and challenging days. Days when all I need is a bathroom break, or to get something to eat.

My needs and wants are defined differently nowI am OK with it. I have looked for happiness and validation in corporate jobs, places to live and other things.  I am attending a class at coursera.org and my amazing professor talks about meaning. Employees want to do something meaningful, make a valid contribution towards something.

I am finding more meaning caring for my daughter  in my pajamas and a hair style that can’t possibly be duplicated than I ever did while wearing a suit and high heels. I do want some of my wants to be promoted to my needs category 🙂 such as my skin care regimen… subject of  another post.


About mommyisblogging

Hi I’m Cris, 45 year old new mom to a beautiful baby girl, Brianna. I was an aspiring multilingual contract lawyer with big career and academic goals. These days I spend time deliberating non negotiable feeding times, diaper changes and engaging in baby talks that defies all legal jargon any day of the week. Being a new mom I decided to start blogging about motherhood and share my experiences with Brianna as well as gain wisdom/help from other moms. From the changes that my daughter brings to my life on a daily basis and learning how to turn lemons into lemonade. Did I mention I am also a mompreneur?!? I am multilingual business woman (Portuguese, English, Italian and Spanish) with over a decade of experience in Corporate America with a lot of interests… but spending time in raising and caring for my daughter is unquestionably my main focus while finding opportunities to provide a better future for my family and helping other moms do the same. Let’s get to know each other. I will bring the juice boxes and coffee.
