Hi, I am Vai from Rambling Through Parenthood. I am an ex-medic and scientist who used to work in medicines information.
Life took a highly unexpected yet utterly endearing turn when I fell pregnant. And then turned on its head when my little son came along. When the time came to go back to work, I was just not ready. I was plagued by separation anxiety. My heartstrings were being tugged, and the pain was excruciating. To end the agony and return to a reasonably peaceful existence, I decided to become a stay-at-home mother to my little boy.
And then it happened. After long years of dormancy, my creative spark was reignited. There were times when I thought my head would explode with all these thoughts swirling about in there. They needed an outlet. So I started to blog. I wrote about being a first-time mother. I wrote about raising a bilingual child. I wrote about everything we got up to as a family. And I wrote poetry for the first time in over fifteen years.
And here I am, rambling through parenthood. I intend to carry on sharing my thoughts, ideas and simple experiments in the hope that they will amuse, if not inspire you along similar ramblings of your own.
