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 ...

Tuesday Tips: a pretty plaster for every little pain
Since having children I've developed a fun little interest: I pick up cool Band-Aids wherever I find them. Especially when I travel I tend to be on the lookout for new designs. It's a fun little present to bring back to the kids and they are always so happy with them! I like to keep them everywhere. In the kitchen drawer (mostly ...

Our little bath time zoo
It must have been over four years ago that I got cute animal towels for Sara and Pim, and we've been using them ever since, day after day. Sara the elephant and Pim the lion -- it quickly became a tradition after each bath. So when Ava started to walk, we got her the zebra towel, ...

My #1 was born in London, and on discharge from the hospital I was told to bathe the baby regularly and that the stump would fall off pretty soon. That's it, simple and practical. Then the midwife who came to our home a couple of times checked on it. #2 was born last week in Milan, and stumps ...

How do you make getting out of the door with all the kids dressed and all the backpacks easy? fun? stress-free? (and some days shout free?) ... @estherbabyccino ‘s adopted 3 minute music trick! At 8AM their Sonos music system automatically starts playing a song. When that happens, all family members know it’s drill time: they have exactly 3 minutes (or however long the song lasts) to make sure they are ready in the hallway, coats on, shoes on, school and gym bags ready, etc. How clever (and fun!) is that? Imagine their family, dancing and singing and happily getting ready in the morning, laughing while making sure to be ready before the song ends! All family members get to choose their favourite song one day of the week. Apparently it is possible to program specific music at specific times in the Sonos system, so for instance on Monday at 8AM dad’s song of choice sounds through the house, on Tuesday it’s the daughter’s favourite song, etc. More in our bio. #babyccinokids #parenthacks

What are your thoughts on this archive post... “boredom spawns creativity and self-sufficiency, and that it’s important for children to accept that life isn’t always a ‘parade of amusements’. Sometimes it’s boring, and the sooner children accept that, the better off they’ll be.” More in our bio from @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids #bored
