Today Karin and I celebrate ten years as a couple! We have had our ups and downs, challenges and joys, but first and foremost we have had each other! One peak moment in our relationship was of course seeing our son come to life, Mika. Soon three years ago! We also has seen Nadine grow up, now eleven years strong. We lost Karin’s father Hans 2010, and dear old cat Wendy 2012, and has seen our cats Uchi and Deshi arrive 2013, and Soto 2015. Sometimes lyricists grasps a feeling. I borrow some lines from Depeche Mode, from.Shake the Disease,…
Fifty years ago, exactly today, The Beatles released their 7″ single, “All you need is Love” in the UK. I wish their universal message gets to be understood and lived by, in the end the whole Family of Humanity. But, to reach there, begin with yourself. The song was tonight’s lullaby. Now, my turn to get to bed. Good Night!
Yeah! This, I strive for! And this attitude, strive to have it transferred to my family – especially my kids #MikaTheHero and #NadineTheHeroine! The most secure way to get a better world in the future, that is. To learn your kids all that you have, and thus can give.
Today, we celebrated Mika, turning two years of age! We had Hedwig, Jippii and Hanna to visit, so it was great! It doubled as a Mother’s Day, so great to have two gen’s of mothers here. I love this boy like crazy. Thank you Hanna and Hedwig for the gifts!
Mika training with his new shoes! And Spring Première at Halvars Ice Cream!| #MikaTheHero #PhotoStory
Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!
End of message.
I love this guy. (Photo by Karin.)
Yesterday, Mika took his first determined strong independent steps! He has taken small cautious steps before, but this was the real thing! Captured on video, here are some still frames from that vid! You can see an Insta-edited version over at @relovetheworld! Proud parents, we are!
Today we were at Folkparken (“People’s Park”), where they at the moment take away some trees that are ill. Fascinating to see the big trucks, right Mika? Then we went to the playground part of the park, in the summerish-feeling spring. Wonderful!
Today we went to a clothing and toy swap for babies and kids. We found a decent bunch of clothes for seasons to come – and a new fav toy for Mika! He has spent a great deal of time with it, already. It was a DIY piece, so it feels great. Oh my, is he focused when he is ‘in the zone’, yes! Photo by Karin.
Look how happy we could be! Grocery shopping made fun! Photo by Karin.
