Expat Mom

I am a 1 and-a-quarter Mom from the US living in Germany. I say "Quarter" Mom because I am not only the mom to a 15-month-old son, but also a Stepmother to an 8 year-old daughter. (The "Quarter" part will be explained at a later time.) My husband is German, which makes us in a cross-cultural relationship, and my stepdaughter is also German. I moved here with ZERO German language skills and did I mention that my stepdaughter only started learning English when I first moved here? But we'll get to language barriers also later. I moved to Germany 2 years ago, and the plan is to stay and raise the children here. So no turning back for this Expat.

Of antipodean origin, currently living in Germany with the "Ger-Man", little "Caspi-Man" and four-legged "Olli". Dream is to have a permanent place in both hemispheres and the means to travel betweeen. Am lucky to have family & friends in far-flung corners of the globe but, where ever I am, I'm missing someone terribly. Prone to procrastination and to wearing pajamas and animal ears - I often find myself outside my comfort seems to be a vertical learning curve.
