Me and Seb, we love to eat! 😀 We love to cook (well Seb does, I just bake), we love to go out for a delicious dinner and when choosing a travel destination, good food is a must.

Compared to other parents who I hear are complaining that they haven’t been able to eat out Continue reading

Five months as a mother

This little one is 5 months today! photoSamuel is so fun these days – smiling, laughing, he is enjoying toys and books, it is great to be around him! And he wants you to be around him too. In fact – all the time! He also screams bloody murder as soon as you leave the room! 😀

If you have even been to IMG_3670Stockholm and wondered why the city is full of male babysitters walking around with strollers, here is an answer for you – those are actually dads 🙂

Apparently, there is even a term for this phenomenon – “latte papas” :-). Continue reading
