    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…

    Happy 3rd Birthday Anastasia!

    Last week – on the 2nd to be more exact – we celebrated my youngest 3rd birthday! I know! For all of you who remember my traumatic afterbirth probably wonder like I do where the time pass? And as one parent does I tried to spoiled her as much as I could especially because her daddy was still away! I bought juices and mini cakes for her to take to nursery and celebrate her birthday with her friends there and I also baked a cake with chocolate like she wanted and had a couple of friends over. It was simple but she enjoy it lots! Just look at the pictures…

    Siblings – The Summer Edition

    It’s been a really busy summer and I really can’t believe how fast it flown by, We spent almost a month in UK and since we’ve been home we had so much fun. We spent most of our time going to the beach, visiting friends and going out at the park and…let’s not forget we had lots of parties. I guess time spent like this with a couple kids will never be boring. I took lots of pictures while we were out and about in UK – lots of memories to look at. My favourite two pictures are the below:   I love how happy both girls look in both…

    Tips for a stress free journey with kids

    This year was the first time I experienced travelling by plane with two kids. Back in March we flew to Paris but my husband was with me so supposedly things were a little bit easier. This june I done it all by myself – just me and two kids: a 31 month old and a 6 years old. I must confess that both time I was really worried but it end up being a lot better than I expected. And believe me it was pretty hard especially on the way back from UK as my youngest was full of an eczema from a penicillin allergy. Things are a little bit…

    Life challenges

    We are back in England after a bit over two years now. Not to stay. Just to visit. Unfortunately our money situation still doesn’t allow us to live here as a family. Plus the fact that we have no family support is another thing that keeps our family apart. I guess is one of those things that we have to go through. Other families have their own challenges so really…I should not complain. I know that s very important for the family to be together but sometimes the things are not as easy as that. We’ve been here three days already and my girls already suffer in a way. I…

    Enjoying Outdoors

    I am so happy that my daughters get to spend so much time outside and so close to their grandparents. A couple of days ago my mother was cutting the grass in the garden and my two were all over her! They loved to help their grandmother, touch the grass and smell its freshness of course. There is not a lot to say just watch them! Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. -Albert Einstein I Love Kara’s face in the picture below she has the same cute face she had when she was just a baby. These days she acts more like a little lady.…

    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…
