WARNING! You need to have a good sense of humor to enjoy this blog. Even though I get to discuss some serious issues, I like to use a grain of salt in my approach. So please, don’t get offended and take this too seriously! As parents, we all need a good laugh every day, and that’s the purpose of this exercise.
As of the end of 2010, I’ve started my own business as a marketing consultant and copywriter, while taking care of two young boys, who keep me quite busy. Now being over 40 (sigh…), I’ve been around for a while, as a parent and a worker. I’ve enjoyed a career in marketing communications for almost 15 years, mostly working for high-tech companies. I’ve experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of the corporate world, and there never is a dull moment.
The same can be said about life at home, where my kids can always sense when I’ve been having a good day or a bad one. Somehow they always manage to make it better or worse, even when I think it’s not possible…
After living and breathing motherhood for the past four years, I love to continue chasing the illusion that I can perfect my motherhood state. It delivers a reality check almost every day! My biggest challenge these days is discipline, and how to channel my boys’ abundant energy, without allowing them to hurt themselves or others…
We live in the San Diego area, probably one of the best places in the US to live with little kids. Between the San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld, Legoland, the beach, the mountains, the desert, etc, we never run out of things to do on the weekends.
I hope you enjoy this blog and can share some of your experiences as a parent. We’re a family of bookworms, so I’ll be sharing a lot of treasured readings for the little ones, as well as the grown-ups.

January 2011 update: for all of 2011, I’ll be testing the daily cow theory, so see if it’s really true that we see cows every day. Check out my blog at “Every day I see a cow”, updated daily. It was recently showcased by WordPress as one of the “10 theme blogs that rock” in 2011. Pretty neat!
