Vegetable Lasagne
We have spent the summer enjoying ourselves and indulging in saucisson, paté, sausages, cheese and bread -- as you would if you are on holiday in France. But I am now craving vegetables so badly! I have spent bit of time browsing the internet for new recipes (as I am a little bit bored of ...

How to draw a penguin - by Oliver Jeffers
Oliver Jeffers must be one of my favourite illustrators, so I got a little bit excited about this tutorial (via the Guardian) on how to draw a penguin. It is so simple, so funny and so charming that it even makes me want to start getting out the crayons! I know nothing about drawing, so ...

How to bake bread
This is yet again a post that is not strictly related to children -- but I saw this video on the Guardian website and I just had to blog about it. I love baking and have been attempting to do some baking with yeast, but I truly had no idea about how it is done ...

Kids in restaurants -- do or don't?
I love eating out and, of course, I love kids... but sometimes the two don't mix.  I do still get annoyed, even after having my own kids, when there are children in a restaurant creating havoc. For me, eating out is a moment to relax, talk and enjoy good food, and a screaming kid can ...

I had it all
I just read this article by the former political editor of the Observer Magazine, Gaby Hinsliff, who recently gave up her career to bring up her son. I have been obsessed ever since my first daughter came along about how to "have it all", and to be honest, I am still looking for the perfect ...

Choice of buggies
At the moment I am really enjoying cutting corners, recycling and making do with what we have, embracing a simple lifestyle. However, there are a few things that are not worth skimping on and children's security is one of them, but being security conscious does not mean breaking the bank. I found this article in ...

We will teach you to make love again
I read this article in the Guardian by Janine di Giovanni called "We will teach you to make love again" and I could not resist mentioning it on Babyccino. For me it reflects a lot my experiences of being a mother in France. The article is definitely written with a big pinch of irony and ...

Barbie
I was never allowed a Barbie. My mother  was a student of the 68 era, so Barbie went against all of her principles. I was even taught at the tender age of four why Barbie was so wrong. I think I must have been a little know-it-all, as I would consequently lecture my little girl ...

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids

This gym bag is such a fun and easy project, also for beginners this is a nice sewing project. Esther, Emilie and the kids had so much fun going to the market choosing all the supplies. The fabrics from Little Cube are the cutest!
