I am a woman. I am a wife. I am a mom. I am a blogger. My name is Barbara.
I’m a mom of five children and wife to my love who is business analyst. Before children my passion was writing. I studied History and Egyptology at the Eötvös Lorand University. After I graduated I worked as a foreign affairs journalist at the Hungarian News Agency. I enjoyed my work and it gave me the opportunity to visit many European countries from Northern Finland to Southern Italy. After the birth of our first child, my husband and I decided I should be the primary caregiver for our family. In 2015, I discovered a new hobby – blogging and started a blog Mom With Five. I write about my parenting experiences and failures too. I want to show having kids is not a fairy tale. It’s challenging work but worth the effort.
I like reading, watching movies, cooking healthy and delicious food and baking cookies.
I can make my kids laugh every moment, even in hard times. I believe in the power of laughing, it can give you strength in your everyday life. I think if you can laugh even at yourself, you can get over any difficulties.
Every motherhood is unique and unrepeatable. This is not a profession, where if you learn the tricks, you’ll have no further problems to do your job because routine and experience will help you get through everything.
I’ve learnt from my children to let my strict principles of parenting go. If you are capable of having flexible principles while being a responsible parent, you can make your life easier, which might be quite an important thing if you have more than one child.
