Day 294 – Spring is officially here!

D

I love the first day of March. It’s a special day for me ever since I was a kid. In my country, traditionally, everyone gives out a particular gift today, especially to girls. The gift consists in a small brooch, tied with a red and white string that you have to wear the entire¬†month. Ten years ago I started taking off the brooch, but never stopped wearing the string on my wrist. This is...

Day 282 – Toddlers and their ways

D

Today my daughter decided that it’s pointless to take a nap. My first thought: “There goes my work schedule.” as I always use those two hours to try and get things done. Instead of panicking, I took her out of bed and took her into mine. I figured if she doesn’t want to do something it’s fine as long as she plays quietly in my bed while I work. Toddlers have their...

Day 277 – Aimless

D

Not in the mood, tired, empty, feeling purposeless… Shower, early morning, overslept, motherly duties… Desperate for fresh air, coffee break, planning, smiling… Lots of hugs, lunch, leaving, teaching… Children, beauty, satisfaction, buss stop… Home, dinner, lots of hugs, smiles, sadness. This is how my day would look like without using any verbs. I was supposed to...

Day 263 – Warm cuddles needed

D

This morning we woke up to see beautiful snowflakes knocking on our windows. We got dressed in a flash and chased them all the way to the park and back home. Today I was supposed to write a happy post about snow and fun, but just like the rain spoiled our snowy fairy tale, that’s also how my state of mind changed. I’ve been fighting a cold for two weeks now and just as I was getting...

Day 262 – Motherly thoughts

D

I always go on and on about children being individuals and not our property. But today isn’t about that, it’s about respect. The new theories about parenting say you should not punish your child in any way, but in the same time they talk about discipline. I must say I am against any kind of punishment, but I do believe in time-outs. Sometimes we need a break from each other, the same...

Day 260 – Statements

D

The circle of life is as wonderful as it is terrible. There is no beginning as there is no end. It just goes round and round again. The age differences between some of us sometimes become too obvious, they can either destroy relationships or bring people closer together, or there are those situations in which there is no age difference but a growth one. What am I talking about? I have no idea...

Day 214 – Another year, another story

D

Last year I was telling you the story about how I’ve met my daughter and tried to shape an image of¬†our first year together. That was the year when I had to reinvent myself and recreate beauty out of nothing. This year the paths have been paved, beauty has been seeded and Ephia became one of my rocks, you know, the kind of rock you keep safely in your pocket and polish it until it grows...
