ABOUT ME

Hi there! I’m Tani De Gregorio. The one behind this little blog. ‘Our big Dubai adventure’ started about two years ago when I quit my job in a multinational in Switzerland to follow my husband to sunny Dubai where we are living now with our two little munchkins, Luca (3) and Maëva (15 months).

This blog is not about the glamorous life of an expat wife. There’s just too many baby wipes and too few high heels in my life for that.

Instead, it’s about our daily adventures in the sandpit. About motherhood away from home. It’s about the kids. About fun things for them to do. Things you might not have heard of otherwise. It’s about workshops. And cool places to explore. In this amazing city we call home. At least for a little while…

You have spoken directly to my heart?
I am so glad I have come across your blog. For me, the struggle is real from the corporate world to mum of two…but as I said you spoke directly to my heart. Thank you for giving me a new perspective to this. I love my boys beyond anything, so expat mum of two will have fun making this work.

I love the workshop idea for mums and their precious ones.

Been on the SAHM position for 8 years now and it has been a challenging ride.

Very well written, Tani! Motherhood is the most taxing yet unpaid job in the world!

I guess once you’re worked in the corporate field, you can’t stop thinking about your CV! My LI profile says Blogger, so at least we have that. But of course, nothing is more fulfilling than being with them when they’re little.

So true women never stop working whether they earn or not. And our experience is superior than any other job title.

Tani this is just BRILLIANT – I am cheering out loud as I read your post. I have been a SAHM for 8.5 years and I definitely have had a lifetime of experience thrown at me during that time. The thing with this role of Motherhood is you learn-on-the-job, never was there a more important time to develop new skills both quickly and efficiently. Maybe I need to look at setting up a LinkedIn account and we’ll stand proud in our bio together… X

Thank you for this. A few days back, I wouldn’t sleep, worrying how I could get back to work when I haven’t done “anything” in a year and plus aside from taking care of our son. But in reflection, I have actually become a better person by being sahm – more patient, less frustrated, more motivated, driven. I hope more companies will see less of an employment gap, and more of the person that has gotten better.

Awesome u just loved it the way your said why can’t you write Mom in linked in. For me it’s been five years since marriage and has been two years since I’ve been trying to find a job in dubai. All I hear from all sides is you had a break in your career.

I feel light and happy after reading your blog.
