Bedhead〰️Chickenpox 〰️3 nights in a row crying and co-sleeping〰️Massive 🍦 ‘cos she felt like it. The end 💗 〰️

It looks like this little cutie has got chickenpox. Just a few days before we go on vacation. Fingers crossed that it goes away quickly 😓

Yeah, she’s wearing slippers. No, it wasn’t intentional. Yes, I am tired. I can’t keep my s%#!t together all the time🤦🏻‍♀️
I am one of those people who makes lists, organises things by colours, folds clothes religiously, rarely forgets stuff. But I am also human and I get overwhelmed. I am rather forgiving of others but when it cones to myself, I beat myself up big time. Today, it’s a funny anecdote. If I had forgotten to turn off the fire that’d be worrying. 😮Laia didn’t care one bit she was wearing her ‘home shoes’. I was mortified and worried of what others might think. ‘What a bad mother, what the heck was she thinking!?’ - Turns out, no one was looking at her slippers but at the bigger-than-life🍦I got her while saying ‘lekker!’ as they passed her by... #momlife

My two favourite humans in the 🌎

Deep in thought. That’s how I often find Laia, a 22 month old wise beyond her years. ➰But I am not going to lie to you. At this very moment, her thoughts were probably about how to eat her veggie #lumpia without losing any tiny bit along the way... Her greasy hands and focused look are proof🌱😀

#tbt Seeing children play makes me believe the 🌍 really can be a better place 💗

I used to be a city girl. I thought I needed the hustle and bustle to feel alive, to feel productive. Being in downtown Barcelona made me feel energised. I didn’t hear the noise. I didn’t smell the smoke coming out of the cars. I thought running from one place to another trying not to crash into people was the way it should be. 🌃 But then I moved to Holland. Then I had a burnout. Then my mum got sick. Then she passed away. Then my priorities changed, not overnight, but through a slow and life-changing process that turned me into the person, the mum, I am today. 💫I no longer liked cities. I no longer needed the noise, the traffic, the crowds. I wanted to hear my own voice. To listen to my own thoughts. To reflect and to reconnect with myself. I started longing to be in nature, something I didn’t feel I needed or wanted to do before 🌱 I now look forward to spending time in the woods, hearing the soothing noise of 💦, seeing Laia run after all the 🦆 and 🐶 she sees. I long to sleep in a simple cabin with the bare essentials, to quiet the noise in my head, to smell the flowers and marvel at something bigger than us: Mother Earth. 🌿If someone had told me that this would be me now, I wouldn’t have believed it. Yet here I am, happier and more content than I ever was, when I was a ‘city girl’.

If we had this weather in the Netherlands 🇳🇱 more often, it’d be one of the best places to live in Europe 🌍

This little one cracks me up with her sassy attitude. Her mix of Dutch, Spanish and English is hilarious. Her sweet nature and goodness is as big as the universe. And her cuteness is hard to beat. We 💜 you little Laia
