Stories about Moms
Let’s all admit it without feeling guilty: summer when you have a child doesn’t feel like freedom and relaxation anymore. Nurseries and summer camps close down, and we find ourselves having to cope with work (and the heat!), chores (and the heat!) and our kids (and the heat!) for almost two months, without having a moment to ourselves to relax.
Dear parents, the time has come to talk about a topic that is dear to us all: going on holidays with small kids.
Summer is here at last and people are getting ready to go on holiday to many different locations, but the family holiday favourite is still the seaside. Going to the seaside with small kids can be more stressful than fun.
Who has not heard their kids say at least once “Mommy, I’m not eating this, I don’t like it!” We don’t think there’s a parent in the world who hasn’t worried about a toddler who refuses to eat or even taste food.
Sometimes getting your kids to eat is a battle of wills: they wiggle, kick, throw the cutlery on the floor and spit food. Most of the time, it’s just your child throwing a tantrum about food he doesn’t want to eat or even taste for lots of different reasons.
“What a mess!” If that is what you say every time you walk into your kid’s bedroom, then carry on reading!
Don’t worry, it’s not just you. Every day parents brave the challenge (more or less without fussing) of toys scattered all over the carpet, crumpled clothes thrown here and there, pacifiers hidden under the bed and building blocks waiting for them to step on (barefoot!).
Dear parents, let's admit it. From the day your child was born, even the simplest things seem impossible. Take for example going out to a restaurant for lunch or dinner: if you have young children, it can be a harrowing experience.
Dear Mums and Dads,
Do you still remember those wonderful mornings when the only sound to wake you up was the alarm clock? And all you had to decide was whether you could lie in bed for another 5 minutes before starting your workday? Now the two of you are no longer alone, and every morning you have to deal with a problem takes a whole lot of courage to face in the mornings.
I'm Marta, mother of sweet three-year old Claudia.
For the first time this year I took her to a a fancy-dress party and I really must tell you what happened!
My name is Rossella and I want to tell what happened a couple of days ago while I was at a mountain resort with my little Andrea.
My lively playful little son has just turned 2, and he is always on the go! This winter we took him on a mountain holiday for the first time and right away he wanted to learn how to ski. But what I want to tell you is not about his sports skills, but about what happened on New Year’s Eve.
My name is Roberta, mother of Giulio, a sweet little boy who is almost one.
Giulio has always a very sociable happy little boy, with friends and relatives alike Whenever I took him out for a walk in his stroller and we met friends, he always smiled and seemed to be relax and happy. Some time ago however, I notice a change in him.
