My name is Paula and I am a stay at home mom of two toddlers. I love to express myself with words and I probably like coloring more than my kids do. I have a background in Architecture and since becoming a parent I’ve tried to displace my creative arts on different hobbies like making computer graphics and painting onesies. On my spare time I like to sing, bake mini muffins and cookies and organize playdates and activities with a group of mommies in my area.
I’m the type of person who will plan and think things through as much as possible, your typical over-thinker. And that has made a huge influence on my parenting. It can be a stressful toll but in most cases I find it a blessing because I manage to problem solve a lot of minor and major situations with a lot of mental trial and error. I think its one of my best parenting qualities. I’m also extremely budget friendly. There are so many decent free programs and activities available to us so why not make the most of them. My husband goes to work every day and busts his butt out there so that our family of five (including our dog) can live comfortably with all our little luxuries. I find it my job to pitch in on being as cheap as possible without compromising too much.
Children look up to their parents as role models, they think we know everything (this probably won’t last long) but the truth is, they’re teaching us every single day! Most children go through similar phases but every child is different so you can imagine the amount of different scenarios in which us parents are left lost, clueless, and looking for answers. I’m constantly looking for inspiration and trying to better myself for my kids and I’m learning so many different things along the way. They make me a better person and hopefully I can do the same. Being and becoming a parent so far has been such a journey and I find myself constantly giving advice on my mistakes and victories so I figured I’d try a little mommy blogging to share my experiences!
