Ein Pfirsich zu Ostern

Oh ja.. unsere klitzekleine Obstschale bekommt Zuwachs! Arbeitstitel: Peach 🍑😉

Ausgerechnet ist der April und ich muss sagen, bis jetzt ist diese Schwangerschaft anders als die Erste vor 7 Jahren. Ich bin oft sehr müde, mir ist ab und zu schwindelig und ich seh jetzt schon aus wie ich damals bei 9 Monaten mit der Limette aussah (obwohl das eher der Mocha ist, den ich im Moment auch gar nicht mag). 

August 2010, 9 Monate, Schlank und 7 Jahre jünger

Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden.. wenn nicht hier, dann bei Instagram 🙄


Then + Now: Lime & London

Es ist mal wieder Zeit für ein Wachstumsupdate 😉


Der Pinguin gehört mir, hat der Herr mir damals geschenkt ^_^

A wise woman once said…

I have been reading quite a few debates and blogs about spanking recently. There is so much to say about this subject and I’d love to write a thorough post about it, for now I’d rather let this quote speak:

Astrid Lindgren – Source: Astridlindgren.se

„When I was about twenty years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time.
„But one day when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking — the first in his life. And she told him he would have to go outside and find a switch for her to hit him with. The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying.
„He said to her, ‚Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock you can throw at me.‘ All of the sudden a mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.
„The mother took the boy onto her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. Because violence begins in the nursery — one can raise children into becoming violent.“

~ Astrid Lindgren, author of „Pippi Longstocking“ (From a peace prize acceptance speech)
