Welcome to Motherhood in NYC
I'm Marinka and I'm a mom to an eight year old son and an eleven year old daughter. We also have a cat, Nicki. Oh yeah, and I'm married. I immigrated from Russia when I was nine years old. I've been exhausted ever since.
Things that I am bad at: Small talk, especially discussing the weather, riding the elevator.
Things that I am good at: Watching Real Housewives of New York, eating ice cream, opening bottles of wine.
Motherhood in NYC is a collection of my reflections about my family, life in NYC and society in general.
I am now writing a book about living in Russia as a young child. Does anyone know how long a nonfiction book is supposed to be? Because I'm certain that once I overcome that stumbling block, the book will really come together.
I also blog at Secret Spineless Whine and NYC Moms and The Mouthy Housewives.
