A rare star is born

On the 2nd of March of 2010, at 10.10 in the morning a very very special girl came to the world, my daughter Sofia. They say that when you have children your life can never be the same again - I say: good! Your life should't…

Not the last dance

Great loss for the music world today  - David Bowie has died at the age of 69. I frankly believe that his death has saddened most of us if not all, each for their own reasons. I am not familiar with his life,  all his achievements,…

The most beautiful ballerina

It might seem like any other regular video where a child dances and sings. Well, it is. The only difference is that like every other proud mom who sees her little baby growing into a beautiful little girl - I, too, am full of a little…

The happiness people fake

What could make  people happy? Hmm... let's see... Money, spending money, buying things, owing a house, an expensive car, showing off their 'fancy' career, feeling important, having a 'high' status in their social circle, being very popular, having many friends, wearing expensive clothes, wining and dining…

Emilia and Baymax…

Spice up your bag

Since 2010 my bag was made out of nappies, milk bottles, wipes, nappy cream, pacifiers, little plastic containers filled with all sort of things, little towels, extra baby suits, extra everything really. Around 2012 my bag content situation changed status. Now it was full of biscuits, little…

Stay-at-home moms have it harder

I have been a member of quite a few mom groups on Facebook for some time now. Most of them are really nice, informative, a place to meet other moms like you, exchange ideas, have some fun and laugh/obsess/get angry about stuff than only other…

Are ‘shouting’ moms just unhappy?

I recently traveled to London for a few days and shopping around Regent street I came across a very common - from what it seems - phenomenon,  - moms being exasperated, frustrated, tired and aggressive. I am totally against shouting at children or displaying any…

Hello!
