My Life As A Super Mommy
All Moms are super in their own way. Raising a child is no easy task. Sometimes we feel so alone. I created this blog so that moms like me would be able to realize that no matter what challenges we face, somewhere inside there is a super mom ready to solve any problem and tackle any task.
A little bit about me….
In my past life I used to be a corporate lawyer. Then once I had kids, for about 5 years I was an around the clock, not a minute to spare “Super Mommy”. Now I am back at work full-time (but with limited face-time). What does that mean? It means I go to the office when my kids are at school and when they are home – back to being a Super Mommy. Once it is bedtime, and the kids are asleep I work again. And if you are wondering – yes I am sleep deprived and life is a bit hectic – but I do love being back in the working world with adults.
My friends seem to think I have an answer to all their questions, probably because I Google and research just about everything. I am a native Californian, but have permanently made my home in Singapore for the last seven years. I have two little boys who are the center of my universe – Zayden is 5 and Xavion is 3. Having my kids really did make my life complete.
Basically my training as a lawyer and my Type “A”, super organized, perfectionist persona has trickled down into my everyday life as a mommy. Thus, as a mommy I seem to be involved in more projects that I can keep track of. I belong to multiple baby groups, mommy organizations and am class mom for both my boys. I spend my time as a mommy taxi between their school, play dates, soccer practice, mandarin class, swimming, etc., etc. My free afternoons are spent at kid’s gyms, parks, gardens, the zoo, making lego houses and play-doh animals. Does it get tiring (yes)? Do I sometimes want to pull my hair out (yes)? But at the end of the day I love my little monkeys and like most moms, would do anything for them. If being a mommy is my new job, then being the best mommy or in other words a “Super Mommy” is what I strive to be.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I would love to hear any ideas you may have or any topics you want me to discuss.
