Parental Amnesia

My children are no longer toddlers, or preschoolers.  I’m solidly in the teen and tween years here.  I remember my children being younger, or at least I think I do but the reality is there’s a lot of amnesia that happens once your children outgrow a phase.

I remember someone telling me that we can only relate to the phase our children are in now, and the one they’re approaching.  Everything else is a blur we vaguely remember some details about.  I didn’t believe it at the time (I had a baby at the time!) but now I totally get it!

    Tips For Traveling With Toddlers And Babies

    Similar to the difference of getting sick pre- and post-baby, there are striking differences when traveling pre- and post-baby. Of course, no one enjoys the long lines and inevitable delays that come with airport travel, especially around the holidays, but there is nothing quite like adding young children to the mix.

    Leaving My Country To Raise My Baby

    My country is beautiful; it is one of the most biodiversified countries in the world; it produces amazing coffee and breathtaking emeralds. It does not get any seasons, being so close to the Equator, but it is blessed to have all the climates and weather the whole time, from the snowy Andes Mountains, to the always-hot Caribbean coast. And it is a developing country. READ MORE

    Baby Box

    Watching American TV shows was one of the only things my husband and I had in common about our childhoods. We grew up in very different neighborhoods, were interested in different things and didn’t speak each other’s languages until our early twenties.
    While we’re both Europeans, he is French and I am Finnish, and there’s about 1500 miles and a big change of mentality in between. READ MORE
