Tripping Mom is about inspiring parents to make their life a practical example of living passionately to their children.
We can only want to get everything that life has to offer us: nature, abundance, happiness, health and a relevant education for our children.
Traditional schooling is not good for our children anymore and there are loads of resources we can use to take the world education to the next level and really make the difference we want to see happen.
On this blog you will find me watching the way I raise my kid, the way others do, studying and being alert to what´s going on in the depths of our behavior.
What we like to call instincts is usually our culture speaking through our unconscious responses. I like to write and expose when an accepted ¨instinct¨ is actually keeping us from evolving.
I´m completely devoted to be a work in progress while I search and apply what I can to improve my daughter´s life and education.
Right now, we are living in a different country, where she is learning two languages and we can have an international experience together.
Now let me talk a little bit about myself
I´m a single mom of a 5-year old girl (I´m 34). I am a surfer, I play the guitar, read a lot and watch movies.
I´m very grateful for the fact that I can spend the first years of my daughter completely at her service. I work on anything that can provide me an income with flexible hours. Lately it´s been with internet marketing, translations and language lessons (while going from frugal to extremely frugal).
Spending a lot of quality time with my daughter is always my priority when I´m managing my time.
I make sure she has a life close to nature and that we exercise every day. We go on bike rides and we swim practically daily. We have to walk slowly together, as we pick up flowers on the way (it sure makes me impatient sometimes…).
I believe that if all the mothers out there had the same opportunity as me (spending lots of time with their kids), the world would be a better place, for the time spent giving, receiving and learning together at home is precious and irreplaceable.
We spent one year and a half in Costa Rica and we are now keeping the Pura Vida in Brazil.
