People don’t really consider how many changes a woman goes through. Most of the time, even the most understanding people can’t really relate to what a mother has to deal with on a daily basis.
It is easy for people to find a gap on your C.V. and not to consider you appropriate for a certain job. This happens especially if you stay at home with your child for six months, a year or two – on your maternity leave.

When you think about it, a year seems like a very long time, doesn’t it?
365 days… that’s a lot, right?
I don’t know how many of you have children, but for a parent, a year doesn’t mean much. That’s what I’ve learned this year. Today my baby girl turned one. So, imagine, 365 days ago she was born… what happened from that moment on is a mystery to me.

It is somehow weird to have to talk about this, but people need to know what to do when they visit a newborn baby! So, let’s talk about it!
Here are some simple rules to consider:
1. Wait for them to invite you over… don’t show up uninvited!

I don’t really know when 8 months have passed, it feels like yesterday I had my very first contractions and went to the hospital… and now, my little girl is saying “mama”, “dada” and other baby words that make perfect sense for her and her toys.

It’s been 6 months since our bundle of joy came to brighten up our days. In some countries, like Ireland, it also means the end of the maternity leave. Of course, other countries have a longer period, for example, in Romania it is one or two years, depending on how long you want to stay at home. No matter which place you’re in, or how long your maternity period is, there comes a day when you have to go back to work.
Unless you own a business and you can afford working from home, or if you can do some freelance jobs that can be done in the comfort of your house, you really need to get all your energy and get back out there. Continue reading “Maternity leave and getting back to work!”
As we all know, there are always two sides for everything. We have good and evil, beautiful and ugly, warm and cold… so today we’ll just do a memory exercise and talk about some of the Disney princesses that we’ve all grown up with. As a parent, you become more aware of some of the consequences things might have on a little person.
