It was exactly 2 years back when I decided to give up my banking job (and the nanny, of course) and take on the role of a full-time mommy. Having worked in the financial services industry for over 10 years, this new ‘avatar’ was taking its time to sink in. Back then, (in what I presume was an attempt to ease me into my new role) a very dear friend of mine sent me this – Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in, it is what God gave you time for.
So anyways, in no time I saw myself completely immersed in the joys (and perils) of motherhood. While this new lease of life revolved around my child now, I simultaneously got into writing to satisfy that unexplored, creative urge in me. One thing led to another and 2 years hence, I came up with the idea of a blog.
So here it is – my thoughts, my experiences and my learnings as an expat mum expressed through my love of writing. Yes, I am a geek except not so much in a ‘nerdy’ kind of way. I’m one of those hungry for knowledge and eager to unravel the many aspects of parenting.
My name is Priyanka and I’m a humble stay-at-home mum, blogger and freelance writer for a top publication in Dubai. My beautiful little family consists of a banker husband and five and a half year old daughter. I am originally from India; however, DUBAI has been my home away from home for the past 11 years.
Fancy joining me on my journey in becoming One Geek of a Parent?
