I half-apologize for the silence on my blog lately. Not really, though, because things haven’t been all that silent in our home…
Two weeks ago our little girl surprised us with her arrival!

For the past 3 weeks I have been enjoying time with my niece, who is currently visiting us from America (thus the lack of posts lately; we’ve been out and about quite a bit, and I am enjoying being a ”tourist” once again in the country I now consider home).
Our most recent getaway was […]
Whenever my husband is home on the weekends and putters around the house, our 11-month old is DESPERATE to be near him, watch him as he does odd jobs, and of course help handle the tools 🙂
One weekend our doorbell had to be fixed, so […]
Earlier today I was spoon-feeding my 8-month-old son one of his favorite snacks: applesauce. Since he is used to feeding himself finger-foods, he didn’t quite understand the concept of Mama refilling his spoon. Every time I tried to take it away to dip it back in the jar, he threw a little fit.
We have all likely seen (or been) that parent who, in an attempt to get their fussy, distracted baby to eat something, tried sneakily coaxing their little one, ”Open up wide, the airplane’s coming in for a landing!”
Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. Babies kinda have a mind of their own.
Today, October 15th, is a day of remembrance.
Two days ago, Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving with friends, family and great food. But today is different.
It’s a day I wouldn’t have paid much attention to if it weren’t for an event that happened in my life just over a year ago.
I never imagined having […]
My son was wailing, and it was my fault.
He was over-tired, since I had passed him around to people eager to hold a sweet baby instead of getting him to sleep. I had pushed back his nursing time, then on top of that, I accidentally dropped something on his foot, which made him […]
I learned an amusing new German phrase the other day. The ‘Deutsch’ love their complicated compound words, and this new expression I heard basically means, ‘everything.’
When a product promises a lot or when you refer to someone as a ‘jack of all trades’, you call it an ‘eierlegende-wollmilchsau.’
Our little one isn’t even born yet, but I did something today that I think I want to turn into a tradition and do every year with my kids at Easter: baking with a purpose! (What can I say…I’m a teacher at heart and if I can combine a meaningful lesson with fun and food, […]
