If you are among those parents fortunate enough to have relatives within the 2-hour-drive radius or financial flexibility to afford a babysitter on regular basis, than you probably have no idea what I'm talking about :)
In any case, just when we got rid of diapers, gave away all the baby clothes and most of baby furniture and other accessories, we need them all again!

I used to get so depressed on rainy days, and only the sun could infuse me with energy, but it all changed when I moved to San Diego. Here, it seems, I can see beauty in everything. This place is filled with colors so vibrant, sounds so motivating, people so positive, that life is simply continuously livable and nothing seems impossible.
What that means for me as a parent is that all these fears I have daily, from the moment I learnt I was pregnant the first time, cannot paralyze me.
"At least I have her love
The city - she loves me" :)

And that's why I decided to blog. I hate isolation, even a temporary one :)
PS I am soooo glad I'm not in school any more. I'd totally get an F for lack of sentence structure :)

My dearest sisters and brothers in parenthood,
as you know yourselves, parenthood is a fantastic journey, a genetically imprinted urge, a choice, an overwhelming desire, a permanent job, an indescribable joy, an inexhaustible source of fear, the best motivator, and, well, a hood. As in "a covering for the head and neck with an opening for the face, typically forming part of a coat or sweatshirt" and in "a neighborhood, esp. one's own neighborhood". And you, along with my husband and children, are the members of that hood of mine.
Every now and then I post something about my kids and my parenting experiences on Facebook, but I came to realize that Facebook doesn't provide enough space for everything I want to share with you about my journey, about my life as a mother. So, a while ago I decided to open this blog, this HOOD, solely dedicated to sharing with you the mother that I am, and learn from you about the parents that you are.
Love you all most sincerely,
