My name is Karina and I’ve always wanted to write a blog but never manage to find about what. Now that I am starting to study in the University of Life as a mom, it only makes sense that I combine this with my other passion, Technology. After all we are no more than the sum of all our talents, and I really hope to graduate with honours!
What is it like to be a Latin family? It’s my stepmother (my dad’s ex) throwing a Mother’s Day party with all my cousins and relatives from my dad’s side and also my mom, her husband and my grandmother! I love my family! Hope you are having a great party and enjoying a lot! Happy Mother’s Day 🥰💐
I am back to work and, after almost 9 months of not using the jargon, it’s so hard to get my brain to think “techie” again and now in every meeting it just look like I am either having a seizure or my screen froze! I am blaming the lockdown here, otherwise I would have joined more in-person meetings at the office and have more informal visits with the team and my friends and I would have talked about something and someone else than just my family and my baby!
She is having a nap on her bed! I just had a hot tea! A HOT TEA!!!
First time she slept through the night! Yes! It does happen! My boobs were huge and leaking as crazy but oh my she slept through! This is awesome! Even if this is the first and only it’s amazing!
Breastfeeding is such a roller coaster, one day baby wants breast and I cry because I want my boobies back, others she wants bottle and I cry because she doesn’t want me anymore!! I want her to grow and be a happy panda but how do you know what is better for your baby?!
I feel that we are very hard on ourselves sometimes because there is a lot of pressure out there on mums, breastfeeding or not, co-sleeping or not, feed to sleep or not… it looks as if there is no way to win in this blame game, it doesn’t matter what you do, you will always be doing something wrong in the eyes of some “expert”… that is why I decided that we are doing what is best for us and that is it! She is growing and is happy and that is all that matters!
It is incredible how good it feels to talk with other moms about anything! We met a friend on Monday and we went to a ‘Walk and Talk” at West Ham park yesterday and what a great way to connect and feel heard, even if you are just talking about sleep (or lack of)! Hearing others happiness and struggles gives you a perspective about what is going on with you that is almost problem solving! Definitely is something I am needing. Isabela was so puzzle when she saw a baby for the first time!
