one of us


it was a tough weeks on many levels. 

one of bright spots was that we got mini's best friend back, this little pink bear known as "bom".

we worked hard all week to get him back after my daughter dropped him through the gap and onto the tracks below the underground train.

it was a traumatic experience as he is somewhat part of our family and we are so happy to have him back at home (and properly bathed)!

back to school

i'm usually ahead of the game when it comes to shopping for fall.

finding the things anna needs and likes (or she'll refuse to wear them) is a fun challenge.

she's opinionated and she's been picking what she wants to wear indipendently since she was 2: no jeans, only leggings; she finally loves skirts and dresses; plain tops won't cut it, there must be a cat/dog/bunny on it; jackets and coats must be more pretty than utilitarian and last but not least, shoes must be sparkly.

these are the rules at 3 years old.

i just want everything to go together easily so she doesn't look like a total clown so my rule is anything goes from the waist up but from the waist down it's solid colors only. and i also don't want to spend much more than100 euro on everything because it will last 6 months tops.

 here is our shopping for fall...
