Hi there! Welcome to my tiny space in the blogosphere. You may have stumbled here by accident or probably something led you here, nevertheless, I am so glad that you’re here. 🙂
Before anything else, I’m Liz Aquino – a career woman, a single mom, a nocturnal person. I am also known to be a workaholic (though I think I am learning how to slow down now) and a control-freak. And because of that, this blog was born.
Diaries of a Control-freak Mom started out in late 2013 as a journal chronicling my journey as a first-time mom and a career woman. The name was coined during my son’s second hospital confinement at 3 weeks old, after realizing that despite my being a control-freak, I could not control – or even dictate, for that matter – the events that my son will go through in life.
I have I have been blogging since the early 2000s but this is the very first blog that I had the courage to publish and promote by creating its own Facebook page. You can read more about it here.
In this blog, I share a lot of my thoughts and realizations, a few mishaps here and there, my son’s developmental milestones… I basically share a little piece of my life. I have blogged about my reviews on several products that my son used and still using as well as learnings and my take-aways from events I have attended.
This blog is already 3 years old but it is still a work in progress. I have been trying quite a few things here over the past few years, trying to explore more of what the blogging world is all about. There’s been a lot of learning experience and with that said, I now have a clearer direction to what I would like this blog to be. Plans for revamp are already in the pipeline so watch out for it. 🙂
Read up, laugh, cry… come join me in my journey to this chaotic and uncontrollable but wonderful and very fulfilling world of mommyhood!
