When did you first become a mother?

I will become a mother at the end of June. At the moment, I am carrying a huge egg-shaped belly!

Where in the world do you live? And, are you from there?

I live in Rome, Italy, and I was born here. I used to live in New York (two years) and Paris (two years), which makes me kind of a gipsy.

My family and life are now in Rome ,and it’s definitely a pleasant place to live in for both, children and adults.

What language(s) do you speak?

I speak Italian (of course), English, French and a little bit of Spanish.

I really like to learn languages and, for some reason, it comes really easy to me.

However, the writing part gets a little more difficult sometimes.

Are you a stay-at-home mom or do you work?

I have my own firm as an Architect and Interior Designer. At the moment, I have to slow down a little. But, as soon as the baby is born, I will try to go back to my previous routine. Well…with some main changes, I guess!

Why do you blog/write?

Just because I like to write!

I also recently found out that the international blogger community is much more interesting than the Italian one. There are more chances to virtually meet people and to share experiences.

I love it!

How would you say that you are different from other mothers?

Maybe because I am not a mother yet. I am full of doubts and questions. Very few answers. I basically walk with a gigantic question mark placed on my head.

Plus, the fact that I lived in different countries gives me many perspectives of how people see things. This is good because I can write about life under different point of views.

What do you view as the challenges of raising a child in today’s world?

Well, I think it will be hard. Everything goes by so fast. Before I got pregnant, I hardly found time for my work and family. Now, adding a child to all this, makes me wonder: HOW AM I GOING TO DO IT ALL?! No answers at all at the moment.

How did you find World Moms Blog?

Through the internet. I was surfing around, and it looked like the perfect place for me!
