Streicheleinheiten

Ich erinnere mich gut: als E noch ein Baby war habe ich gefühlt Stunden damit verbracht, sie liebevoll und ausdauernd zu wickeln, zu hegen und zu pflegen, genüsslich zu baden, all ihre Babyspeck- und Pirelli-Rillen zu putzen und sie anschliessend von Kopf bis Fuss verwöhnend einzuölen. Mit einer richtigen, geübten Baby-Massage selbstverständlich (man will als...

Mama’s Guide to Inner Balance

Mama’s Guide to Inner Balance

Jetzt bin ich also eine “Mama von zwei Kids”. Und ich geb’s zu: ich platze fast vor Stolz! Mama zu sein ist einfach das Beste auf der Welt. Nun ja, aber mit so einem Neugeborenen zu Hause (schon vier Wochen ist unsere süsse, süsse Baby R nun alt, die Zeit vergeht viel zu schnell, ich...

Family of Four

Family of Four

Remember how Baby E changed our lives for good, at the eleventh hour in 2016..? Well, our family has since expanded, and we’re counting our blessings. Our beautiful Rosa Marigold – or “Baby Rosa”, as E lovingly calls her – joined our family already four weeks ago. After our “fruit salad” (Elma means “apple” in...

Scones & Tea (for me)

Scones & Tea (for me)

39 weeks. It can’t be negated, I’m now really in the final spurt of this pregnancy. Due date: any minute. Apart from a brief stint to the hospital this week – false alarm (I was experiencing contractions – and the pain didn’t leave for a couple of hours until it completely vanished again) – I...

Hausgemachte Gemüsebouillon

Auf Englisch fällt mir das Schreiben fast leichter… Dennoch dachte ich heute spontan, hach, ein Wechsel auf (meine Muttersprache) Deutsch macht doch eigentlich viel mehr Sinn? Ich hoffe, dir machen meine Inhalte nach wie vor Spass. Danke, dass du hier bist! Schon als Kind war ich kein so grosser Suppentiger (wie ich es eigentlich gerne...

Love your nappies

Love your nappies

Or: our journey to NOT potty training You would have thought that having a 2.5 years old toddler at home, you‘re „out of the worst“ (as we say in German). E can walk (in fact, she’s pretty much running everywhere, all the time), talk full sentences, work her charm when she wants something, eats like...

Pregnancy 2.0

Pregnancy 2.0

Being pregnant the second time around – I am currently in week 30, eep! How time flies… – I’m yet again humbled. Humbled by this miracle and incredible honor that is creating and carrying a new life. Amazed by the changes my body is going through. Pregnancy truly is a blessing and, also the second...

Summer. A simple word, filled with so much meaning. And now that we’ve had a taste of it, we want more! We’re waiting in the wings to tick things off our summer bucket list. On the very top: picnics for every meal! Of course, a nice home-made iced tea is the star of every al...

Chocolatey Bliss Balls

Chocolatey Bliss Balls

A healthy, vegan treat even your kids will love I loooove bliss balls – or energy balls – aka the healthy, sugar free, nutty snack! But truth time: bliss balls are basically bastards, because, duh! They are hard af to make, IMHO. How can anyone pretend they’re easy to make at home, from scratch? I...
