Anticlimax today when I scraped my tired self off the couch (both kids slept very unsettlingly last night) and dolled up a little extra to go get my expired passport renewed (I looked like a drug abusing plumber struggling with jaundice in my old one, I wanted to make an attempt to do better this time). Turns out, one has to make an appointment to get a new passport nowadays. Hmm...can't recall anyone sending me that memo. Nevertheless, I must say I got a good reminder that an extreme mom makeover now and then can really do miracles to ones' state of mind. Hence:
Conclusion #1 : Those annoying douche people who always says things like "Dress the way you want to feel" really weren't fucking around after all.
Conclusion #2: Constant lack of makeup and daily use of sweat pants and soft shirts is not the only look one can sport as a parent of small children.

One parent tends to be the agent of order, the other the agent of chaos. Can you guess which one I am? #chaosftw #greensleevesremix #parenthooduncut

It's starting feel a lot like Christmas ▪

Our many failed attempts when taking our family selfie on Halloween. These images are the perfect representation of our lives currently... total chaos! Lol oh well, there's always next year I suppose. 😊👻🎃 @flash0628 @retta_williams1 @williams.retta #halloween2016 #totalchaos #lifewithababyandtoddler #parenthooduncut #failedselfiesarethebestselfies

Tuesday and a great new way of dividing tasks in the family: the girls put on makeup and the guys clean👌. This little girl is currently obsessed with putting makeup on. In general, she is very into copying everything we do. She happily changes tires, helps to make a slammin ratatouille or insists on singing along to the chorus of @zaralarsson's "I Would Like".
Ahhh...nothing like hearing a 2,5 year old loudly singing the words: "I would like to get, under your sexy body" 😂😭😱

Made a visit to see our new, wonderful, quirky and gigantonourmous house which really needs some smart heads and some builders to make it come together. The floor plan is like the Rubik's cube: if you change one thing, you will have to change ten other things too. Nevertheless, just like that guy in school that you had a crush on although you knew it was probably not the best idea and going to be a bit tricky: we can't help ourselves, we love it anyway🏠❤️. #onlytwomonthsleft

This is my dad and his sister eating Christmas dinner sometime in the early 60ies.
During World War II, in 1944, they fled Latvia to Sweden together with their parents. My grandfather, who was a railway engineer back in Latvia, had gotten an order to report himself to the Russian authorities, and since the word had gotten around that more and more people were disappearing, he knew that it meant he was going to be transported to Siberia and the camps there. My grandparents made a decision, paid off a fisherman, and in the middle of the night they made their escape over to Sweden. My father was only 10 months old. My great uncle who was a physicist wasn't so lucky - he got transported and was forced to stay in Siberia for over twenty years.
.
I am definitely shaped by my father's story and his family's strength. They worked hard and they always got back on their feet. Being a mother today, I many times think of the struggles his parents had to go through while starting new in Sweden. I close my eyes and imagine how my aunt (pic) as a five year old, took care of her two year old little brother while their parents had to work long hours for low wages to get by. How that must have been. My kids are that age now... Unimaginable.
.
Anyway, my dad and his sister turned out to be very successful in their life and they are both remarkable people. My dad looks pretty dapper in this picture, doesn't he? Other people just think he looks like Putin 😂. #savefamilyphotos #tbt

Auntie Jo was here yesterday to cheer things up. Man oh man, that boy loves her. Look at his eyes ❤️.

PS. It's interesting how a short visit can make you "hungover" when you're sick. I've literarily slept all day. #zzzz

I call this piece:
"The nine phases of killer bacterias attacking your body".

Finally home after four days on heavy antibiotics in the hospital, feeling a bit better but still in pain. Oh man, the weird shit that can happen to you... Thank God for free healthcare and bless the people who have chosen a job taking care of others ❤️.

So this was me both yesterday and the day before yesterday. It hasn't been pretty. I have cried, slept and moaned myself through it. My body has ached EVERYWHERE. Today I'm a little better but seriously, having this high fever as an adult - really?! What's crossed my mind even more during this near-death-experience is all of you single parents out there who does not have the luxury of partner or a family member who can take care of you or your kids while you're sick. I don't know how you do it, but I have cried for you too. Extra love and respect to you❤️. To all grown up people with a fever of 104 - I am on your side: this fever crap is just WRONG!
