    Parenthood – a historic timeline

    Being a parent is one of the hardest and most beautiful jobs in the whole world.  Plus very rewarding let’s not forget. Seeing your child smile and thrive is what we all work for let’s face it. However, ever since you tell people about your good news “We are going to have a baby!” the questions start pouring! “Did you decide what you going to do? Are you going to try and give birth naturally or just book for a caesarean?” “Home birth, water birth or hospital?” “Are you going to breastfeed or bottle-feed?” “What type of nappies you want to use disposable or not?” You don’t even have time…

  • #PlaytheHero Hangout: Children’s Imagination

    Drum rolls please…YUP you guessed! I am one of the bloggers taking part in Britmums hangout about helping our children’s imagination! I know you don’t see me often in pictures and a video with me talking is even more rare. I don’t like talking in front of people in my own language…so when I hear my voice in English I think…”What?!?!? What was I thinking?” But then I comeback with my feet on earth and think…hm…why not try talk in front of the camera&people even more? Like Becky said I should try and not be as hard with myself. So here is me and six other fantastic bloggers and mums…

  • Routine always works

    Routine always works

    I believe strongly that making sure you are establishing a good routine for your kids at a very early age it will help you and them greatly. I am not one of the most organised people when it comes to other things but regarding my kids and their nap times and bedtime I am. I had Kara on a routine from the beginning and when Anastasia was born I knew that I will need to do the same. Of course in the first couple of days and weeks you can’t expect a new born to just follow it. But then later after 6-8 it will be different. Babies and kids…

  • Every little {parenting} advice helps – CANparent classes

    Before I became a mother I knew very little about how to care about children. God knows I am still learning how to parent. Parenting it’s something you learn with time. There are no set rules because every child is different so what might work for one might make the other really upset. I have two girls but while babies for example I looked after them in a different way. When I became pregnant the first time the advices from the people I knew all my life and from people I didn’t know too started to pour over me. Some of the things i was told were very good advice…

  • Solo parenting – how do you do it?

    So yeh although i am married most of the time I feel like a single parent.   99.99% of the time i am the one taking all the decisions regarding my girls. Simple decisions but time consuming ones.   When do we eat? What do we eat? Anastasia can’t eat the same thing as Kara…   Aw…wait Kara can’t go to nursery today as she is snotty and she is coughing so i need to figure out a plan and activities for the whole day…   At some point one of them will cry or scream because they are not happy…   The weather changed as well so is not…

  • How not to be the perfect parent

    How not to be the perfect parent

    When hubby and I decided to have kids we didn’t actually wondered if we will be good at it or not. Ok that’s a lie. Hubby always said that I will make a great mother. But I always disagree. Nobody can be good always. Everybody makes mistakes in life and we make lots with our kids.Our grandparents made mistakes with our parents. And our parents (although they might try to deny it) made mistakes with us.So for sure we are prone to make mistakes with our kids even though they will be different mistakes and not the ones that our parents made with us.But do we need to be perfect…

  • How to baby proof your home

    My Baby Anastasia is now 6 months old! I just can’t believe it! I know I keep saying here quite a lot but time it’s passing way too fast! In the last 3-4 weeks Anastasia passed quite a few milestones. She started solids, she now sits up on her bum properly (well for about 5-10 min at the time so I still need to make sure I put pillows around her), rolling from front to back and from back to front and even crawling. Well it’s not a perfect crawling but she’s getting around more or less which makes me worry about the environment she lives in. In our apartment…
