Yesterday we decided to try and create our own dandelions, using simple kitchen utensils like ...

My name is...
When we moved back to the US, one of the most important things for our 3½-year-old was her new room -- what would it look like?  In order to keep some consistency (the poor thing had to deal with an international move AND a new baby sister at the same time), I made sure to ...

Before we finish our week dedicated to back to school, we wanted to highlight an interesting post about how schools differ drastically around the world and why Switzerland had it so right! “School in Zurich is idyllic. From walking to school alone to days in the forest, kids are taught independence from an early age. Instead of helicopter parenting, kids are self sufficient, self reliant, and find their own way.” more from @mominzurich, link in bio.
