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 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 ...

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 ...

“This is an oldie but a goodie. As a child I used to make conker spiderwebs in school and with my mum. And so do my children. It’s an easy autumn craft, manageable for little hands but also extremely entertaining for bigger ones.” More from @estherbabyccino on today’s blog post! Tap on link. #babyccinocrafts #babyccinokids

As parents, do you occasionally argue in front of your children? Courtney has written about this on today’s blog post (tap on link).... “But then, as I tried my hardest to regain my composure, I realised that it’s actually probably healthy for them to witness an argument and to know that not everything is always picture-perfect, and that we are human and we sometimes fight, but that we will eventually make-up and learn from this and things will be better because of it.” @courtneyadamo What are your thoughts? 🤐 or ? #babyccinokids #teachingchildren #growingasparents
