 Friends and family members who already had more than one child described the transition from one to two children as pretty “crazy and a lot of work” … but what did that exactly mean ? Well, in the past eight months I had plenty of time to face various situations and challenges, some of which I…

About Taking Time

I hope you don’t mind that it’s been a little bit silently here on the blog. Settling in as a family of four and enjoying these precious moments has taken all my time…well, and then there was also our move to Panama; but that is another story (more to come soon)! Although I love writing…

Carry Them Close: About Babywearing

The January Cocktail

There is a reason why it’s been a bit quiet here. This Januray, I have been drinking a cocktail. A very strong cocktail full of flavours that made me feel: 1. Sweet: Yes, I am about to go back into work life! This will mean that I will be able to go to the bathroom…

A Happy Thank You!

Last year on New Year’s Eve, I went to bed at 11pm. I had just become a mom and had a hard time sitting comfortably. I was not in the mood for chatting… nor was drinking an option. All I wanted was to lay down and sleep. I did not sleep a lot in 2014.…
