New hair.

As I posted on facebook, I shaved part of my head.
I know, I know, I'm cool.
My daughter is cooler than me though.

My baby taking care of a doll.

Miko is two years old. He's a handful BIG TIME, but if I play alone with him, he can be such a cutie. He was taking care of this doll, serving it some tea, giving it the bottle and putting it to sleep. It was so cute. I had to share this with you because I feel that maybe someday he won't be this little terrible two that drives everyone nuts, but this sweet little boy playing nicely. I love these moments.

My best friend is turning 27 years old this week, so we decided to have a little surprise party with lots of family and old friends. She had no idea that we had this organised for her ! She started crying 2 seconds after we yelled "surprise" ! ; )
We laughed, danced and ate yummy food that her mom and mother-in-law made... Mmmm!
Here's a couple pictures of our evening :

 I didn't get any group pictures, but at least I have some dancing pictures! ; )
Happy birthday Maude !

Have a great week xox

Cilia's home

This week we spent part of our day (on monday) with Cilia and her family. She has a beautiful house that her man built with old and new wood.
She loves to garden, but she has trouble finding the time working in it since she has 3 young kids.
We talked about mommy life and we ate some yummy lunch while the kids played outside.
Here are a couple of picture of her lovely house.

lovely old floors.



Her garden and there she is with her little man.

Kids playing.

Having fun.

I love her house! I wanna move there... ;)

Bits and pieces of my sisters apartment.

My sister has the cutest apartment and I really wanted to take some pictures. I'm not really satisfied of the quality of the pictures that I took, but it gives you the feel of the place.

Tips from (and for) a stay-at-home mama and pictures from last week and this weekend !

As you probably know, I am a stay at home mama. Some days, I can't take it anymore. Some days everything is good. But I realised alot of things over the years that I would really like too share  with you. I know that sometimes we feel alone, but we're not and it's always fun reading about other mama's ways of surviving with three young kids 24/7.


1.  Be yourself and do what you think is best for your children.

2. Cook easy meals : cheese, bread, raw vegetables, eggs etc... Kids don't really like fancy food that takes forever to make and cook. Less stress = happy kids.

3. Keep busy : Bike, play at the park, invite friends over and dance !

4. When you feel overwhelmed and frustrated, clean or cut your hair.

5. When the kids fight, stop what your doing and just go play with them.

6. Make friends : talk with other moms at the park, they probably feel the same way as you !

7.  Do some volunteer work and bring your kids with you : it changes the routine and it's good for the soul.

8. Your house will not always be clean, but you can still hide toys under the couch and  fill your closets with your stuff. It makes you think that your house it clean, even if it's not. ;)

9.  Read : Buddhism for mothers by Sarah Napthali. Very interesting book for mothers searching for inner peace.

10.  Put your kids to bed early and have sex : Yep. Light some candles, put some music on and just have fun with your partner, it keeps the relationship strong and true. ;)

Voilà ! Have fun with your family even if it's not always perfect as we want it too be.

 We have been pretty busy spending time with old and new friends + family last week and this weekend. We enjoy having fun with people that we love.

Here are some pictures from last week and this weekend :

Alot of kid action going on here.
