Day 27: family dreams

This is the card my husband got for his 30th birthday. Kind of “plan” of what we will be in 5 years from now (currently we’re building our own house, hopefully in 5 years we’ll be living there happily).

Day 5: life and love

    Today we haven’t tried anything extraordinary with my kid, just the usual daily exploration and play… Like checking out various objects in the kitchen, talking to dog or re-organizing mom’s stationery.   In the meanwhile mom keeps reading

Today we are learning colors, for example, trying to sort our toys… Also I printed out special cards, pictures have holes to be filled with appropriate background color…. Don’t think Ksenia got the point of this game, but she really

Thing #9: me!
