Dear Readers! Just like last year, this winter was also a very hard time for us. Those from you who have small children, especially preschoolers, they know what I mean. Our “winter sleep” lasted for almost three months … But all our last year’s winter and Easter posts (skiing, winter holidays, Easter, pastries, etc.) are always actual and despite a break on our blog, we recorded a lot of entries to those topics, which makes us very happy. Now, we slowly awake and welcome the Spring. Despite our break, we did not idle, and so today we can present the best Dictionary of English for children.
Many parents think up how to encourage their child do eat anything (except of sweets of course), not to mention full five valuable meals during the day. I admit that we also experienced this with our son. It required from us doubled efforts in the kitchen and resulted in the fact that today, he eats many dishes, among of which there are many his favorite. How, then, encourage our child to eat? How to show that cooking can be fun and useful?
Summer is ending, so sunny and carefree time too. Kids come back to kindergarten, teenagers – to school, adults – to work. All of them full of impressions and holiday adventures. These days, parenting blogs were presenting lot of different layettes to kindergarten /school, etc. At work, people fall into the wave of new projects. Time goes on, it is no longer as colorful, routine is returning in our days. But how to see something unique or create this uniqueness in an ordinary day? It turns out that very little is needed to do something special or even ponder over the miracle of ordinary days. Everything depends on ourselves.
Living in a run, in the throes of work and duties it is rather hard to remember of a moment of relaxduring the day. Mummys know best something about it 🙂 But we finally have Summer. Time of holidays, carefree moments, relaxation and fun … Only which mother can say that she has just started holidays? Until you really plan it, pack up and leave it is rather hard for relaxation. So it is with the moments of relax during the busy day – it’s worth to plan them in advance and implement them, otherwise our days after day passes, and our fatigue and frustration is growing. But do not worry – with the prize, which is to win in our lottery today – a moment of relaxation is guaranteed! And for even longer than you expect 😉 We invite you to participate! Continue reading
I must admit that me and my husband – we are big movie fans. Although, when it comes to television, I can count on my fingers the number of times it was turned on for the past 10 years in our home. However, our projector and screen are very often in use. We also try to go to the cinema, whenever we have the opportunity (our nanny or grandmother takes care of our son). Then it is just a moviegoer feast! Today, we recommend a few films that we have seen in recent months, and which will relax you, or in some way make you reborn again … Continue reading

The book New York in Pyjamarama, which recently joined our Smart Kid Library, and which we will present today, is not an ordinary book. This are magical moving pictures, which certainly will attract attention of any toddler for a longer time. In this book, there was used a very old technique of animation – “ombro cinema” – based on an optical illusion. You just put a striated foil (attached to the book) on the pictures and very slowly move from one edge side to the other, and the pictures come alive! We recommend it and wish you a lot of fun.
