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.

It was a DIY piece, so it feels great. Oh my, is he focused when he is ‘in the zone’, yes! Photo by Karin.

Karin was on a roundtrip to Tyresö (Stockholm) to say hello to some kitteh at Suzanne Fors / Pinkalicious breeder. Check her Insta at @akrogirl! We spent our Saturday chilling. As seen!
Today we take notice of all the women of the world. International Women’s Day. We still have a long way to go to get a society where Equal Opportunities exist, and where universal human rights are respected in practice. My contribution is to foster my kids, so they can carry the message and live the spirit – a work I do together with my beloved woman, Karin. Another sphere of influence is through my Aikido. In our club, right now, we have two active women. One more senior, who have been practicing Aikido since she was a little kid. And…
