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

    When my hubby extended himself by spending some time on Amazon.com and ordering us a book on attachment parenting, far into our pregnancy, I reacted as any swollen, hormonal, hemorrhoid toting, carpel tunnel syndromed, sleep deprived, way-too-old-to- be-pregnant wife would: READ MORE

    La Dolce Vita

    Italians love their sweets. For breakfast it’s always, always dolce. You cannot find a plain croissant in Rome. Most are stuffed with jam or custard, and if you ask for a plain one it’s been glazed with sugar—because why would you eat it otherwise? And for treats throughout the day? Well, of course, more dolce. READ MORE

    A Bathroom Break In Peace? Maybe When She Goes Off To College.

    Whenever I try to do anything, I can always trust that my 4-year-old daughter will be there to ask tons of questions. Most of the questions seem unrelated to me, but I’m sure in her mind it all makes sense.

    Her: Mommy? MOMMY??
