My name is Kris de Guzman. I am a wife, a mom to 2 girls and a mompreneur born and bred in Manila, Philippines. The title of my blog may mislead you to think I am an alpha mom who is the epitome of Desperate Housewife Bree Van de Kamp. Let me stop you right there. First of all, I am 20 pounds away from her body (in a bad way). Second, I cannot cook. Third, anything I touch in the garden turns to mulch. As you can see, I am far from perfect.
I admit, though, that I do TEND to be O.C. in some aspects of my life …
… OK, a lot of aspects in my life.
I am not sure when it started though — maybe from my mother, who could be Martha Stewart‘s clone; or the nuns in my school who measured our skirt lengths and the whites of our nails with a ruler; or my pre-mom career, where I managed disinfectant brands for home and personal care; or the birth of my first child in 2007.
Whatever it was, it doesn’t matter (actually, it does as I may need to identify it on the psychiatrist’s couch down the road). I’m pretty sure all moms have had their own O.C. moments. With this blog, I hope to chronicle my own O.C. mom experiences, my friends’ O.C. mom habits and hopefully, get stories from our O.C. mom readers out there (if by some miracle this blog gets any readers at all).
If you have any stories, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
