Kids love the pumpkins and related activities, like carving your own pumpkin, seeing how apple cider is produced, picking their own pumpkin to take home, walking through the apple maze, feeding and petting the goats. If you go on the weekends, make sure you…

We are making sure to soak up the last late summer moments, hours and – if we’re lucky – days. I have a post prepared about our month away in Provence. Kind of like our summer diary. But first, let…

By | Mamalife, Parenting, Various | No Comments

Not that we need a euphemism for “breastfeeding”. But E calling her beloved mama milk “Mimi”, in her raspy-but-soft voice, is the cutest thing ever, really. And right upfront – because I can literally hear you all think “but… how oooold is E again…?” when I write about “breastfeeding: E ist currently 18 months plus a couple of days old….

Who knew I was going to be the outdoorsy mama… The mama who always chases the sun, always prefers going for a spin in fresh air to being stuck inside. Well, go figure.

Even before mamahood, gift giving was kind of my biggest hobby. And nowadays with baby (pardon me, toddler of course) I’m kind of in non-stop gift giving frenzy…! The explanation being: little one simply „needs“ so much stuff… From everyday basic clothes to functional wear like rain boots to books, toys, tablewear and snack boxes… Endless. With a toddler, shopping…

Hi folks, I’m back, and hasn’t it been ages, again… Sure couldn’t have planned for a better return than this, though. Having a toddler means getting to indulge in things that we, as grown-ups, tend to forget to enjoy. Immersing ourselves in play, simple, infinite play. I never thought I was going to be the mama who fills the home…
