Furthermore, with gastrointestinal problems and fever the consumption of quince can help. In addition, the yellow fruit tastes delicious. 🙂 Weiterlesen
Sitting in front of the fireplace and discovering in the flames faces and stories, cuddling on the couch and enjoying a performance of the snowball ballet or diving under into a Christmas story the blanket – Christmas time is story time. Weiterlesen
Saturday night – why not wait for the snowflakes in the garden with a steaming cup of mulled wine (or grape juice)? Tell each other stories by the fire? If necessary, the hot delicacy can also be brewed on the stove and sip by sip be enjoyed along with a Christmas thriller… 😊
1l red wine or grape juice
2 cinnamon sticks
5 cardamon capsules
Sweetness (eg cane sugar, honey, agave syrup …)
Mix all the ingredients and heat them in a pot on the fire or in a pan on the stove. Let it rest for a few minutes and then enjoy it. Bottom up! 🙂
Samstagabend – warum nicht mit einer dampfenden Tasse Glühwein im Garten auf die Schneeflocken warten? In guter Gesellschaft am Feuer Geschichten erzählen? Zur Not lässt sich die heisse Köstlichkeit auch auf dem Herd brauen und bei einem Weihnachtskrimi Schluck für Schluck geniessen… 😊
1l Rotwein oder Traubensaft
Süsse (z.B. Rohrzucker, Honig, Agavendicksaft…)
Alle Zutaten mischen und in einem Topf auf dem Feuer oder in einer Pfanne auf dem Herd erhitzen. Einige Minuten ziehen lassen und dann geniessen. Prost! 🙂

Drinking from baby bottle? Our tiny daughter with the enormous need for sucking gives me a contemptuous look. The pacifier makes her choke. And the pap meal – so cherished by many small children – are despised by her. Better fasting than a baby meal. Just do not be treated like a baby. Finally, she is a full-fledged family member, that Akeera makes us clear in the very first days of her earthly life. With a pronounced own will.
Akeera knows exactly what she wants. She pursues her own way, tries out and discovers her inclinations and aversions. We are watching her, interested, fascinated, and sometimes a little exhausted, because of her single-mindness that does not always matches with our minds. Weiterlesen
Midnight. Twelve times the bells ring through the darkness, bring in my birthday. I’m awake. All three of us are awake. Not because we’re celebrating, oh no! On the contrary, Akeera’s (still invisible) can keep us on their toes. I dandle the small, warm body, humming in her ear, bury my face in the soft baby hair. Bravely I ignore the creeping lameness in my arms, the pulling in the cross. Think positively, I tell myself. After all, it’s my birthday. I am grateful that Akeera is such a light child. I am grateful that I have joint her afternoon sleep. I am grateful that I do not have to work tomorrow. Weiterlesen
A new-born baby – especially when it is a firstborn – is usually overloaded with time, love and attention. We parents are searching for the ‚better than best‘ in the huge offer of baby goods, we are heading through the literary jungle of educational counsellors, and sometimes we even venture into new territory of arts and crafts. Everything to ensure the best possible start to life for our little darlings.
In doing so, we frequently overestimate the actual necessity of certain consume products, get blinded by advertising and sponsored contributions on the Internet. And suddenly we find ourselves in an apartment full of hardly or completely unused shopping trip souvenirs. In the desire to do everything right, we can easily flood our children with products, even overwhelm them. At least we personally have already been tapped into this trap several times … This is normal, we guess.
But where do these products come from? Who created it? Under which conditions? Who tested Akeera’s baby’s shampoo for extra soft baby hair? Weiterlesen
