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

Photos/social media can be so deceiving. This trip to the park was not as enjoyable as it looks. I say this because (generally speaking) people only share the good stuff. Which is fine but often causes this false sense of perfection. So, I'm just putting it out there.. our trip to the park wasn't so great; to sum it up, these boys were awful at listening. This momma is so happy that they're both in bed and tomorrow is a new day! đŸ€— #parenthooduncut #itsnotalwaysrainbowsandbutterflies

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. đŸ˜ŠđŸ‘»đŸŽƒ @flash0628 @retta_williams1 @williams.retta #halloween2016 #totalchaos #lifewithababyandtoddler #parenthooduncut #failedselfiesarethebestselfies

It doesn't get more Swedish than this!
Yesterday we celebrated Midsummer's Eve. I would say it's the one day when we Swedes go all in on being Swedish: we eat smörgÄsbord; have schnaps (read: practice an eight hour minimum intake of alcoholic beverages); raise and dance around the maypole (see video for proof); enjoy folk dancing, wear floral crowns... Personally, I think it's a great tradition for families and small children, whereas for the average Swede between the age of 15 and 30, the tradition of heavy drinking throughout the whole day always seem to trigger dramatic scenes and olympic size hangovers the day after. Nevertheless, I am really into traditions in general and yesterday we went all in Sweden-style and celebrated Midsummer's with my dad in my home town where my first memories of Midsummer was born. It was actually kind of lovely.
After that we went home and had Spanish tapas with friends.

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 anywayđŸ â€ïž. #onlytwomonthsleft

The move is done! The ribbon is cut, the champagne is downed, the boxes stored, the kids settled (with some freak outs here and there), the friends and the family visited (well many of them, it's only been two weeks), the first waves caught, the jungle garden groomed and the first post-move-we-need-to-release-some-stress fight taken place. I'm totally exhausted now and my head feels like a watermelon, but we made it!

I just want to write something about leaving stuff behind and starting new: It's not easy. The decision we made to move an hour north was pretty frightening at first. We have so much of our social life as well as our professional lives in- and around Malmö. There were many mental hurdles. Gradually we solved all logistic issues but the heart has its own way of holding on to things. Moving day started with my partner in crime/ neighbor @anjagatu came to wave us off. It made it all very real and definitive. We were ready to leave the town, our house - everything except the good friends we've had the luxury of spending time with on a weekly and daily basis. This goes out especially to you, the best neighbors and friends: @linabarucija @gustavgatu @madamow @umnaja @rasmii @mikbjo
BUT...the silver lining is that we've had so many people drop by our new house since we've moved that we are no longer scared that we won't stay in touch! Thanks for the great days that has given us a kick-start and helped us feeling at home @elinapetronella @muggskott @jayne_helmersson @philip.girdo @arkitektenstradgard @dbkalle @berithyvonne @fam.cederek @jejjegirdo @tinggrenolsson @styggadittin

July 16th. Day and night, packing our belongings into big, white boxes. We are moving to the new house in a WEEK, and I am SO glad that our organizational skills as well as my own physical condition has improved since the last time we moved, three years ago. I was 8 weeks pregnant, we had no movers and I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown running after a 1,5 year old while trying not to vomit on him. This time around it's easier and we have planned it better. Nevertheless - trying to pack with two cute midgets on speed hanging around is NOT a walk in the park:
.
*Packing thing into a box*
- Mom, can I have a snack?
- Yes of course, sweetie.
*Getting snack for kid. Continuing putting same thing into box*
- Mom, Lusse hit me!
- That wasn't nice Lusse, you know you should never hit anyone. Now say you're sorry to Hubert.
- I'm sorry
*Grateful. That went surprisingly well? Trying to collect my brain again and focus on what to put in the box*
- Mom?
- Yes, baby?
- I want some Mommy time with you.
- But sweetie, mommy needs to pack right now, you know? Go watch something on your iPad, ok?
*Kid walks off, pouting. Putting second thing into box. Where was I? This pitcher is ugly but practical. Hmm...I bet...*
- Mooom! I need to go to the bathroom!
- Ok, I'm coming to help.
*Helps toddler. Getting back to box. Can't remember if I'm categorizing kitchen utensils or underwear anymore. Head feels blurry.*
- Aooouch!
- But what the actual f...?!
*Packing aborted, running to the rescue. Toddler fallen while using doll stroller as a kick bike*
.
...AND SO ON. All day, every day. The End.

Conclusion: our intake of coffee has tripled and our night shifts are LONG, but we're going to make it. I think.

"Mom, can you cut my hair short? It's too warm".
I don't blame him. Our little guy - no exaggeration - is blessed with hair dense as the fur of a Newfoundland dog. It is crazy thick and heavy. So yesterday I made an attempt to cut it short (I always cut his hair but only sort of grooming it) and OMG. I cut and cut and cut - there was no end to the amount of hair! Two hours later, a new haircut, done by yours truly. Looks good in the front, but sketchy in the back so I'm about to call the hairdresser to get it fixed. Lucky he is cute!

Have you gotten a letter or card in your mailbox lately? I mean an ACTUAL letter, delivered to your REAL mailbox, the kind that's in front of your house? Well neither have I, but I got one today - an awesome one. An old friend had cleaned out his house and found these pictures of me from the year...2001? He mailed (not scanned) them to me together with a - *drumroll* - handwritten card. So nice! (Note to self: gotta start sending more handwritten things). And those photos...I'm not saying I remember it as it was yesterday but I was certainly thrown back in time. To who I was. What my problems were then. Who I hung out with - people who I no longer have contact with. Some of them I still think about on a regular basis and wish I could talk to more often. You're always going to be one of them, @ehsanologi . Thanks for the best throwback on a Thursday ever 😘💛🙏. Now let's all go write some real letters! ✍✉đŸ’Ș.
