About

Nicole is outspoken, a mother of 3 and a bit of a nerd. Pushing 40, passionate about family, she lives in Trinidad & Tobago with her husband, pre-school daughter and 2 tween sons. Trying to master this parenting thing, this rebel has found her cause.

Thanks for visiting “When did I become my Mom”.

This blog started in 2009 as a place for me to process my thoughts and indulge in a little creative writing here and there. A place that is all my own to express my creative side, quite apart from my very logical career persona as an IT Strategic Consultant.

Over the past 3 years, this space has evolved as I’ve evolved as a Family Advocate, parent, wife and career woman. I “think aloud” here on family, relationships, and the parenting.

As for the name… Well, haven’t we all been there? :)

You wake up one day and you start hearing phrases coming out of your mouth that you swore you’d never let pass your lips when you had your own kids… And you gain a sudden new appreciation for your Mother’s perspective on life and raising children… And you ask yourself…

“When did I become my Mom?”
