Oups I did it again! This time with 2 toddlers!

interview

I have been out of the Public Relations circus for 14 months now. No interview, nothing, not even a little off.

So when I was invited by Yulia from Tiny Expats to answer a few questions about my career path from a busy working schedule to a full time stay at home Mum… I could not resist the call! Dear audience, this is me again behind the mic, this time with my 2 Attilas 🙂

I loved the chance to share my experience as a (still new) stay at home Mum. Yes, I do cherish the privilege to spend real time with my toddlers. No, it’s not easy all the time to surrender to the “simple joys of motherhood” when you’ve had a passionating career for years. It takes time to relinquish the temperament of obsessive productivity and the habits to see the day as a big checklist. To stop managing our children and finally relax in their company.

But it is so worth it! We have a life time to work, but our children are only young once. I’ll get a couple of jobs when they’ll turn teenagers.. Carpe diem 😛

      1. Hi Estelea, Please don’t worry, but when I click on my name, I am directed to Lucile De Godoy’s blog. It is the Brazilian thing LOL as we are both from that country. All the best and I will send my suggestion of camera. Take care, my dear friend, and hugs to you and to your beautiful family! 🙂
