Parenting Adventures

Anul acesta am hotarat sa mergem in vacanta in Romania, intr-un soi de tur al unor zone nevizitate pana acum.  Prima oprire: Viscri. Am ajuns la Viscri ca la pomul laudat. :) Cred ca ar trebui sa ii ridice o...
Dupa ce s-a nascut Erica, am inteles ca va trece mult timp pana cand viata noastra va semana cu ce traisem inainte sa raman insarcinata. :) Am fost intotdeauna un cuplu activ, genul acela care atunci cand nu munceam...
Am nascut prin cezariana si nu, nici nu imi pare rau si nici nu ma simt vinovata. La finalul unei sarcini dificile care m-a epuizat fizic si psihic, nu mai aveam puterea sa incerc nasterea naturala. Stiu ca natural...
Fiica mea are 4 ani si jumatate, adica fix varsta la care copiii spun lucruri trasnite si adultii se distreaza copios. Viata alaturi de ea a devenit din ce in ce mai interesanta, iar eu invat zi de zi...
Anul trecut prin vara, pe cand fiica mea avea 3 ani si jumatate, treceam impreuna prin perioada de “criza”. Adica ea facea crizele si eu le suportam. :) Cumva, habar n-am cum, canalele comunicarii dintre noi erau tare intortochiate,...
N-am mai scris de ceva timp in seria Urban Mom - Untold story of motherhood, si azi m-am gandit ca nu ar fi rau sa o continui, mai ales ca de-a lungul timpului uiti tot felul de detalii si...
When your child is sick and you stand by his side powerless, that’s when being a mom becomes  hard. When you know you’ve given her the right treatment and there’s no positive effect, that’s when being a mom becomes...
You know that feeling of butterflies in your stomach when you fall in love? When you see him and feel like melting? When you realise you have a stupid smile on your face while daydreaming? When your heartbeat is...

Parenting frustrations

Last week was a hard one. What am I saying?…. This whole month was exhausting. Our daughter prepared for us a special autumn menu that consisted in 3 weeks of coughing, sleepless nights, followed by a very special week...
When I was pregnant, I haven’t really thought about what kind of parent will I be. I only knew what kind of parent I wasn’t going to be, I knew what mistakes I didn’t want to do, and I...

Game On

I remember a time when playing was the only thing on my to do list. I remember spending all summer days with my friends outside running around, playing all sorts of stupid games, riding my bicycle or just playing...

Surprise, surprise

(I was 5 and a half months pregnant in the photo above. ) Back to motherhood today. :) As I was telling you in the previous articles of “Untold story of motherhood”, my pregnancy wasn’t like a walk in the park. First trimester...
This June we went on vacation to 2 super locations right here in Romania…Erica included. First stop - Acacia Village We spent 3 amazing days near Bucharest, at Acacia Village. This place is paradise, both for children and parents, and it’s...

I wish I was my daughter

…Because I wasn’t as smart as she is when I was her age, I didn’t know as many things as she knows and I didn’t go to as many interesting places as she goes, experiencing so many things at...
This Wednesday we had our dinner at a restaurant in Bucharest called “La Conac”, the one on Pache Protopopescu. We forgot to take pictures but this is less important right now, you can discover it on your own. We...
Cooking with my child means a lot more than cooking. It’s an opportunity for both of us to create beautiful memories, an opportunity for her to have fun and get dirty and an ‘opportunity’ for me to clean a...
You know those days when you don’t feel like cooking? This happens a lot on weekends so we usually get out, all 3 of us. I thought it would be a good idea to show you the places we...
Yesterday I started the chapter on my pregnancy, so today I want to tell you the rest of the first trimester story, a true adventure for me and my family. :) So, with my blood test normal again, we could...
In the previous chapter I was telling you about my adventures until I got pregnant. This chapter will be about my pregnancy, how I felt physically and emotionally, my story exactly as it was. I wanted so much to get...
September 2012 When we talk about motherhood, we always say it is so wonderful to be a parent, there’s no grater gift in life than the birth of your child, his/her hug is the most precious in the world, the...
