Recommended Read: Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman

In the weeks since its release, Bringing Up Bébé has been a topic of debate on both sides of the Atlantic. While some have been quick to label it as a parenting manual, or an affront against American parents everywhere, Bringing Up Bébé is really one mother’s account of navigating the new and mysterious world of parenthood, and having to do it in another country, proposing a culture shock all its own.  Bringing Up Bébé is an amusing, touching, and adventurous account of life as a new parent and the choices one must make in the best interest of one’s own child, family, and life.  Bringing Up Bébé highlights the  inner struggles we all face as parents, on both sides of the Atlantic. Through the author’s light and humor-filled look at her own trials and tribulations, we just might find a bit of ourselves – who we are today and who we’d like to be.

Who am I today?

Welcome to my blog! Rarely do our lives travel in the straight line we envisioned when we were, oh, let’s say…. much younger and just a tad more naive. After many twists and turns, and some interestingly unexpected life and professional experiences, I find myself asking “Who am I today?” on a regular basis. At any given moment, I can be any of the following: writer, editor, academic, researcher, educator, program developer, policy consultant, linguist, traveler, mother, wife and more.

Life comes with twists, turns and lots of unexpected events! Just who am I today? Join me as I figure it out. ~Nicole
