Did it today. The annual together-with-my-kids Birthday Photo at the playground terrace at the kiddie hospital in Linköping, with Mika undergoing investigation. Not the regular place to celebrate. But – love is everywhere! Thanks for a loveful b-day, family!
At the hospital. Investigation continues. Here – a little pizza break.
Today, we took a walk on town, and had a break at a hamburger restaurant. Mika was eating ketchup by straw! Then we got a call from the doctor since we wondered about why Mika gets many bruises. We were recommended to do a checkup at the hospital. We did so, and did some testing. Investigating further, and will share what is going on when we get definite results.
Nadine is here! Got her today! All fine! (And yes … She does not want her face to be shown …)
What started out as a journey at 06.32 this morning, ended just some minutes ago. Just stepped over threshold. Nadine walking over the bridge in her home town Eidsvoll. I followed her all the way home. She did not have the patience with daddy photo’ing the sceneries. Thank you for this time, darling! See you soon again!
Today Mika turned four years! Celebrated by mom, dad, big sister Nadine and grandma Hedwig, he got so happy with all the presents and all the love and attention! Great cake, great food. Live long and prosper, my dear son!
After a night bus to Norway, picked up Nadine this morning! Arrived back this afternoon. She is here to celebrate Mika’s birthday, which is tomorrow!
A little Throwback Thursday. Nadine at Centralbadet, 2014. And soon she’s back just for a few days to celebrate Mika’s birthday!
Things happen all the time. Good thing some stuff remains as-we-can-experience-as … “STATIC”. For me, this experienced “CONSTANT” is – as you might know by now, if you’ve followed me through the years: PEACE. LOVE. HARMONY. UNDERSTANDING. Fifty years ago today, a Bed-In For Peace was taking place. Yoko Ono. John Ono Lennon. In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Our World. In the same spirit – here we are. Mika. Nadine. Me. And my beloved Karin behind the camera. In our sofa, at Sandgatan 12B, Norrköping, Sweden, Our World. Not at all with the same magnitude of “followers”. Far from that “reach”….
Mika loves music. Mika loves singing. Mika loves dancing. At the moment, these three songs. He adds new meaning. As with Torn, where Lisa Ajax sings “…pieces”, Mika sings “…pizza”. Just. So. Lovely! And! Cute! Our parental hearts are melting. Our smiles spread as he sings for all of us! A common favourite of both Nadine and Mika is the radiant brilliance of Laleh, singing “Bara få va mig själv” (“Only To Be Myself”). Spot on! Be yourself, Mika. Remind us to be ourselves, Mika. Just. Be! Mohombi with “Hello”, now also added with a sweatshirt we found the past…
Period. Enuff said. Now on to some domestic work (cat litter boxes to get new sand), then getting The Mika from preschool. All, at the same time as Karin is with Hanna and her little big baby Luna in Linköping for an All Grrl Power Day! A special thought to my daughter Nadine and her mom too! KEEP STRONG, ALL WOMEN OUT THERE! AND ALL MEN AT THEIR SIDES! YOU HEAR? __ Img src: Viber
Three playlists from the Winter Holiday week. One week soundtrack of three hours, from the days Nadine was here. One flashback by Karin with grungy nineties – Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains and Mad Season. So far! And from today – a tribute to all mothers out there – especially Karin!
