The Times Of Amma
The Times Of Amma was born in El Salvador, where I grappled with being a brand new mother in a brand new land and no support system.
My social life was at an all-time low and reduced to babbles with my five-month old daughter, ranting at my husband and gesturing at my exclusively Spanish-speaking housekeeper. Till one day I internet-searched myself into an expatriate mother's forum on a social networking site. Suddenly the doors opened to a world of play dates and birthday parties and mom and baby coffee meet-ups.
Finding this community of moms made life easier with recommendations on the best parks, family friendly eateries, activities and so on. And suddenly being an expat mom was not so difficult anymore.
It is this warm embrace of the sisterhood of motherhood that I hope to virtually pass on with this blog.
From honest conversations on parenting, features on inspirational mothers, grandmother's columns, mom-approved recipes to easy crafts, the Times Of Amma is run by a mother for mothers, especially expat mothers who are bringing up kids away from their families and cultural support systems.
The Times Of Amma, today is all about being a virtual resource where everyone from working mums to Stay At Home Mums to Work From Home Mums and every other kind of Mum/Amma/Mummy/Momma/Ammi feel welcome and supported.
We might be away from our own Mums and Ammas, but we are just a click away from this sisterhood of mothers.
