Tips for curly hair
I have the most boring hair in the world -- straight and, especially since having children, super thin. So I am a wee bit jealous of my daughter Coco's lovely, mop of curly hair, ringlets and all. I am, however, not jealous of all the knots she gets in her hair. Many a tear has ...

A pretty, poetic new collection from Louise Misha
Louise Misha needs no introduction here. We've shared our love for this brand a few times over the years (see last year's post and notice how much Marlow has grown! Oh my gosh!). Louise Misha has become well-known and loved for its pretty, bohemian-style clothing for girls and women, and it is now stocked in more ...

Shopping for a toddler boy
Wilkie, who turns two next week !!, is officially potty-trained. Hooray! It gives me such pleasure knowing I will never have to do that again! Five babies down.... no more to go...! Haha. (Of course there are plenty more parenting challenges to face, but potty-training thankfully isn't one of them.) Anyway, I had forgotten what ...

THURSDAY THOUGHTS
At what age do you leave your kids home alone at night?
I had a revelation the other day when my youngest daughter told me that she had spent the evening entertaining the guest. The guest in this case was the 19-year-old babysitter whom I was paying good money to! This is when I realized that my kids were probably fine at staying home alone and very ...

Carmen Sandiego - finally a strong female cartoon lead
I will let you in on a secret -- we do watch TV ;). In fact, I really like watching television with the kids, especially now that they are older and we can enjoy shows together. (It goes without saying that this is of course in moderation). Some great content has been made lately, with ...

The Sock Solution
So I have given up! With the pairing of matching socks that is. The lost sock is a problem that I am sure has existed since the beginning of time and no one has ever found a satisfactory solution. No matter how much we catch up with our washing, at any given time there is ...

Swifty Scooters -- a fun and safe way to explore and travel
In my ever continuing search to find the ideal transport to cross Paris easily and quickly -- I have come to the conclusion that travelling independently, i.e. with wheels or by foot, is the best way to get from A to B. First and foremost it lets us enjoy the beautiful city we live in. ...

A vibrant new Autumn/Winter collection at Louise Misha
Okay, okay... I will admit straight away that these photos are not very Autumn/Wintery with the beach as our backdrop, and with barefoot children as my little models.  : )  But, this is exactly what I love about the Louise Misha brand: the pieces are beautiful and cheerful, despite the season. This is the new ...

Mrs Wordsmith
I find teaching kids how to read and expanding their vocabulary such an interesting subject. There are so many different theories and there are so many different methods out there, which makes it hard to figure out what works. Children are also so very different. One of my kids picked up a book at age ...

Smock dresses for special occasions, by Charlotte Sy Dimby
Remember when we were kids and had a special outfit for special occasions? Maybe it's a European thing, but kids over here hardly seem to dress up anymore! I love being casual and relaxed, but part of me misses the excitement of dressing up and making an effort. Even I don't have a special outfit ...

‘Poaching a whole chicken is actually one of the most straightforward and hands-off processes and, for some reason, feels particularly rewarding and holistic. The chicken is so succulent and flavoursome that really you need very little with it!’ Read the how-to on our blog today — shredded poached chicken is delicious in salads and sandwiches or served with rice or noodles for a quick Asian-inspired meal. (Added bonus, of course, is the beautiful broth you are left with! ) #babyccinoeats #poachedchicken #familycooking @ieatmypeas
