How can we celebrate motherhood on a single day? 


As a mother I sense genuine gratitude from my kids during unexpected and fleeting moments of pure joy.  They express it unknowingly how happy it makes me.
Therefore, no flower, no card and no craft (which no child will be making at school these days by the way) will ever come close to show the gratitude needed for a mamma to feel understood and appreciated, nor should it.  Having said this, jewelry comes close, and a day alone for self-care comes closer.  
Until however, until my children become parents they cannot come close to understanding how much we are sacrificing, and that’s ok, I couldn’t either.

How to Host the BEST Virtual Birthday Party!


This day, that day, the other day, someday, yesterday, today… I no longer know what day of the week it is. This may be the case for us parents, but I assure you that your child knows exactly what day their birthday is, despite all the chaos around.
So how can you make their day special during the lock down, when you cannot physically see family and friends to celebrate? While you could wait to reschedule a party when all of this is over, virtual parties are awesome and can even be more exciting than a conventional event. They are practically free, almost no clean-up after, zero exhaustion from hosting and you can still socialise within a virtual yet real time environment.

Within a few weeks nevertheless, normal life will look totally different, especially regarding education. Schools will open their doors to students once more but changes will have to be made for safety.
Parents are wondering whether they should make their children wear masks since it is challenging to convince a young child to keep something on their face for so long. So should children wear masks?
