• Teach them

    Cherish them. Cherish every single minute…and make sure you let them know you cherish the time you spend with them and their person. Respect them. And let them know that you respect them. Show them what love is and make sure that they know how much you LOVE them.   And don’t forget HUG them all the time! Everything you show them how to do they will learn and replicate A LOT!    

  • My daughter’s sadness

    This past week was full of mixed feelings. I am talking about myself mainly here…but I am also talking about my eldest that gets really sad when talking to her daddy sometimes. Well…she usually gets sad when she knows her daddy’s time to arrive is coming…You might say that she should be happy instead but I think that she’s is a bit too much like her mummy. No matter what plans we have for when daddy is here I always think about the time when he will have to go away again. What can I do to make my almost 6 years old feel better? Give her even more attention…

  • Sisters – Dressing up

    My girls…my beautiful lovely girls..they are so funny and is nice to be around them when they are having fun. Of course not only…I love them so much and the love I have for them is growing every single day. One of the activities they both love very much is dressing up – I guess all girls do but mine could play all day long like this. They do each other hair , they dance and pretend like they are the real princesses. Kara is really into posing in pictures – what can I say she has the experience while Anastasia started to hide away her face. So hard to take pictures…

  • My 26 month old baby – Living Arrows #6

    Anastasia is not a baby anymore but I still feel like she is because she is my youngest. It feels really hard to let go actually…and without realising I am more protective with her than I am with my eldest…to which I probably expect a tiny bit too much…but its not something I can help myself with. Even only a week passed since I was telling you about my youngest oh my it feels she changed so much since then. Her language is more developed and she is more aware of her surroundings. Nobody can fool her anymore and she is very strong-minded. If she hears us (Kara and I)…

  • Living Arrows #5

    There’s no day passing at the moment without taking pictures of my girls. I want to have as many pictures as possible with my girls and document their growing up and evolution. Last week I was showing you lots of pictures with my eldest attending her zumba classes. Today I want to tell you more about my youngest, my baby that is no longer a baby…Anastasia. I feel so nostalgic just watching her…I realise how much I miss the time when she was still a baby. Now nothing can stop her…not even me. She is funny and witty…there is no day passing without my house being filled with her giggle.…

  • Living Arrows #4

    This last week both girls have been kind of ill so unlike the other week we spent quite a lot of time indoors. The weather is kind of nasty anyway…cold…and rainy…not really the kind of day you would take your kids out really… But it didn’t matter. We had fun. The only place I took my eldest during the week was her Zumba classes. I know I did mention them before but I never show you pictures from her class did I?   Although she can’t really follow all the steps her teacher does she loves doing zumba and I am happy to see her smiling and enjoying herself. And…

  • Sisters 3/52

    This last week I started using more and more my husband camera. You see he left here for me to use and snap pictures but it is a lot heavier and newer than my Canon 450D so it took a while for me to grab and start using. The pictures it takes and the lens is a 85mm prime and appropriate for close ups and portraits. When I witness at Christmas what it can do…I decided that I will use it a lot more so here it is…the pics I took in the last couple of days. I do confess I did play a bit with picmonkey on the original 🙂 Anastasia’s pictures…
