• Life as a family of four

    We are finally a family of four – living together under the same roof here in Romania. Daddy is now a work at home daddy. And everyone is really happy about it! Mummy is continuing to work from home. And now the girls are on their summer holidays. The house is a tiny bit crowded and we are still getting used to it but we are finally whole and it is finally wonderful. The girls broke for holiday on 15th of June and they will get back on 9th of September. Summers are really hot here and we have 40C in the afternoon sometimes so this is why kids have…

  • Sisters – January

    A couple of years ago I was taking part in a photography blog meme along with other mummy bloggers. Unfortunately last year I stopped doing it and now looking back I really regret it as with it I also stopped taking pictures with my girls.  I looked it up to see if this project is still going on the other blogs but I was sad to see that it doesn’t… I mean the project was actually called “Siblings” but all 2016 and a couple of months in 2017 I recalled it “Sisters” in order to reflect our family better. After all I have two girls so…why not call it Sisters?…

  • My baby girl is not longer a baby

      You! You are an amazing little lady! Today you officially finished Year 1 here in Romania! You make me feel so proud! And like your teacher was saying a couple of months ago you are a spectacle! Although I had doubts about you handling school here after spending only one year in Romania two years ago you just proved that you are an amazing, clever child! You’ve done better than just handling school. You have amazing grades for a child that did’t even know how to speak properly in Romanian because she was still only thinking in English. You even have better grades than some of your colleagues that…

  • Sisters {March}

    Sisters {march}

    There are truly no words to describe my love for my two girls. They are my world and the reason why I go on. Like any person suffering of depression my days are sometimes harder to get through but because of my two girls I continue to fight surviving it and go on.   I am considering myself very lucky that I can work from home and be here for my girls 24/7 – it’s what the joy of blogging brings to me. My girls are now 7 and 3 and the bond between them grows more and more. Although their characters are so different – my eldest is rather…

  • Stay Still

    As my girls continue to grow and flourish the days seem to get busier and busier and also shorter and shorter. Both girls learn new things every day at school and at nursery so our conversations and the questions they ask change. From simple questions like “Mummy why some people are smaller and others taller?” to more deep questions like “Did God really make the whole planet in only six days? I mean…how can one person do so much in such a short time?”. Their questions, especially the questions my 6 years old is asking become harder and harder to answer and sometimes I wish their father was living with…

  • A new beginning

    The new school year officially started today in Romania. This day also marked the beginning of new things for my girls. While Kara is starting Year 1,  Anastasia is also starting her 1st year in Nursery. For Kara the start of Year 1 means that she will start to have homework and to be graded. I think it will be difficult for her and it will take a while for her to get used to be graded with Insufficient, Sufficient, Good or Very Good. It is a big step! I am sorry I didn’t take a picture so I can show you her face when she was told that tomorrow and the…

  • My little, my world/ Romanian Mum Blog

    My little,my world…

    Life doesn’t give any moment of respiro these days. My girls are both very active and when I take them out at the park I never have a moment when I just can sit down and watch them playing. You see my youngest is a very active little lady so I can’t really let her run around like I used to leave my eldest when she was her age. Even my eldest is way more active now…you see her one moment and then…you don’t! Well is the same about both of them really! Only that with my eldest as she is 6 I am not always afraid that she will…
