Everyone said that life was going to change...

.....but they did not tell me how!

Hello everyone! My name is Anusce and I am neo-mom to a six month old baby girl. Her name is Maya, and her arrival has taken us through a world wind of emotions, filled with highs and lows, with moments where the end of the ride seems approaching, but,instead, it is only the calm before the storm. Thus, the need to scream...MammaMia!

So, let me introduce to you to the little one that rocks my world. 

 (2 months old)

Born on Januray19, 2012, at 8 pounds, she made her entrance knowing exactly what to do! From sleeping, to nursing, she acted as if, the womb had trained her for what was coning. We felt so excited to have such a great little one. We looked at each other, while at the hospital, and said "this is going to be so easy!" And then.....we were released and went home.
It was as if, she knew. As we stepped inside the house, everything changed! Parenthood kicked in full force. Feedings began, and never ended (or so it seemed), and the sleepless nights overwhelmed us.
And so, everything a first time parent experiences, we experienced. Including what I thought I would never have to deal with...postpartum! Uff, it was interesting. Me? Postpartum, no, not me, I would say while pregnant. I am a happy and bubbly person, no way I will experience it. HA! The joke was on me. Within two days, words came out of my mouth that would have probably placed me in the Guinness World Records as Worst Mom Ever! 
Magically, everything got better after one month. Our lives started to sync with Maya's new adventures, new discovery and new developments. Every day became team work day. Every day small events became repetitive giving us the calmness that we have  longed for so long. The routine, the repetition and the daily tasks made us feel normal again. 
Now, my life is the one of a working mother who strives to find balance between motherhood, the family and the career, while keeping some sanity while doing it all.
With this blog, I hope to share my learning, my challenges, my shortcuts, my tips to finding the harmony within the chaos.
