Swan Mothers

Discovering Ourselves through Parenting

About Natalia

I am an evolving hueman, transformed mother, novice (indoor, so far) rock climber, ardent reader, and a writer of books.

It’s been quite the journey to get here. I lived my first twenty-nine years in beautiful and secure ordinariness, enjoying a pleasant childhood (circle of friends, family camping trips, community), school and job success (BA Chemistry, MS Hazardous Waste Management, cancer research, environmental site cleanup, hazardous waste disposal), easy friendships, and a happy marriage (going strong).

Motherhood landed me in a new land. I started parenthood with expectations that all would proceed as most of my life had until then, according to my plan. I read, researched, created spreadsheets, and scheduled every minute to create perfect children. Then, my children arrived.  From day three, nothing went according to plan.

I did all that (I thought) I was supposed to do. I did everything (in my mind) right. And my parenting was not working. I yelled, I cried, I yelled more. I felt like a failure. I was a failure.

Turns out I did not have average kids. Each of my children arrived with a clear mission and unique way of being. None developed in accordance with timelines or charts. Life as I knew and envisioned it, ended.

Today, I know there is no such thing as normal. Back then, not-normal surprised me, made me sad, angry, and confused.

Slowly, over the course of fourteen years, I figured out a few things.

  • The correct homeopathic remedy can stop a tantrum in its tracks.
  • There are better ways to feed a resistant eater than pushing food into his mouth and holding it closed while praying that he’ll swallow and proceed eat willingly.
  • Meridian Tapping can make me feel better fast, and I can do it anywhere.
  • Cell Salts really are Nature’s Magic Healers.
  • Working on myself shifts the energy in my family.  It’s true: “When Mama’s happy, everybody’s happy.”  Or, at least, when Mama’s happy, she can cope with whatever’s going on. And that’s something.
