Both of us love traveling and we have both traveled quite a bit already. From living in many different countries before settling in Spain to discovering new places on trips each year, no matter how strong our love our travel rhythm has slowed down quite a bit since we became parents. We are traveling a lot to the Netherlands so we have had our fair share of flights with a young child and both of us are still traveling a bit through work (C gets to travel A LOT for field hockey, I have an occasional trip for work) or for fun, we make sure to visit at least one new place each year. I have South Africa coming up in a month with my sisters, so excited!
I received a watch from JORD in exchange for my honest opinion. As always, all thoughts are completely my own.
How often do you grab your phone to see what time it is, start checking something on social media or your messages, only to realize after you put your phone away that you have no clue what time it is? Story of my life several times a day. In the post about my goals for 2017 I mentioned that one of my big goals for this year was to be less on my phone. So I installed an app to monitor my phone usage and let me tell you, it was quite depressing!
Momlife…… you could write a book about it! Luckily some awesome small shops did write all the craziness that we encounter on a daily base on clothes. There are so many awesome tees out there for us moms. Check out my favorite finds from small shops (mostly owned by moms!) and treat yo self! (Or, with mothers day coming up, treat one of your mom friends!)
As I shared in earlier posts, after some time where bedtime was always a struggle, we did a very light version of sleep training and it worked miracles for us. However, although bedtime was much better and without any crying, the bichin kept waking up really early and after some 5am waking we were a bit done with it. During the same week as we had those 5am morning, I did some bingewatching of one of my obsessions on Netflix and in this series, quite some sleep problems with toddlers were discussed as well. And that´s when I realized the two mistakes we had been making here.
Netflix…. The enemy of many mom´s productivity and to-do list. We were kinda late guests to the Netflix party but since we arrived I am hooked. Apart from starting some old-time favorites from scratch (Gossip Girl, don´t judge!), I recently re-discovered an obsession I have always had with a tv show, Nanny on Tour with Jo Frost.
