There's just love

Mar 18, 2015 • Mums, dads & kids

Oliver was supposed to come today. Instead, he was in a rush to come get all that love I always told him about. So he came on Sunday and—oh my!—he found so much love!

It’s unbelievable and insanely amazing the love you feel the moment you meet your child for the first time. And it keeps growing and growing and growing.

Even now, after three exhausting, overwhelming and emotionally challenging days, roller-coastering through hormones and emotions, starting what might potentially be another sleepless night… there’s just love.

We’re parents.

New to La Tela?

I’ve prepared collections on various topics that I’ve written over the years. Perhaps you’ll find one that interests you.

The blog

Latest from the blog

I write mostly about gentle parenting, Montessori, multilingualism, sustainability and traveling with kids (we do it full-time).

Mums, dads & kids

We don't know how to be parents, we learn it everyday as we go. This is my way of motherhood, the small victories and the bitter defeats, my inconvenient truths and the endless life lessons. And also all the baby products and toys we love the most.

Montessori

One day a few years ago my husband came home and said, "Why don't we put a mattress on the floor in the baby room? It'd be much more natural". "Never" was my reply. That's how our Montessori journey started. Since then we've been living, breathing and applying the philosophy at home day in and day out, starting from ourselves. Because educating children starts from the parents.

Living sustainably

Living sustainably for me doesn’t only mean to have a more eco-friendly lifestyle. It means to make decisions that are sustainable for our planet, the people on it, but also for our life, our lifestyle, and our happiness. It means to take any daily chance to evolve and be happier, healthier, kinder, more responsible and more caring human beings—the only sustainable way for a meaningful future.
