in {her} shoes...varya

Pin It
Hi! I’m Varya and I am a stay-home mom to 2 beautiful girls (4 years old and 4 months old) and a wife to an amazing husband. I blog at The Creative World of Varya about encouraging creativity in our children. Being an early education expert and a mom, I enjoy working with my own children and families with children aged birth to 3 years old. I'm excited to participate in the "in {her} shoes" project!

I love being barefoot or move around in flip-flops. I used to be a high-heels-gal but at the end of the day flip-flops were my most favorite. They help me feel closer to Mother Earth. No wonder both of my girls don't like wearing shoes or socks!

My inspiration lays in my family and my Faith. I am a Baha'i and we believe that everyone is born with talents and capacities and should be treated from the time of conception as an intelligent human being. We also believe that education on all levels is necessary and required to help these talents to manifest.

When my first daughter born it was one of the greatest joys I felt. I knew that I had progressed from being just an educator to being a mother - first educator ever a child gets. Now that our second daughter is here, I love that I am able to discover more of my own talents as a mother.

I guess the most challenging part of being a mother is to remember that everyone makes mistakes and we were children once upon a time. The learning process never ends and as parents we are also learning through making mistakes.
The most rewarding part is to see the progress of your child, the smiles, the words: "I love you, mama!" uttered, the little hands grabbing your face or embracing you.
I hope my children can learn the value of life, respect towards others, be honest and hardworking. I encourage my children to be independent and creative, not to afraid to speak their mind and always tell me what really happens in their daily life.
Three words to describe me? I am sure my daughter would say: "Mommy, you are a princess!"
I should add a few words about my husband: he is the love of my life and my best friend. He manages to connect with our children in a special way that makes both girls move up and down (yes, even our infant girl!) when they hear his voice!

I'd like to share this beautiful quotation with you which inspires me the most when I feel challenged as a mom and as an educator:

Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education alone can unravel its treasures.
- Baha'u'llah.
