My heart is filled with joy being the mother of a two-year-old. From the moment Mia wakes up in the morning, hearing her little footsteps as she sneaks into our room, until I lay her down in her bed at night, she brings me unspeakable...

I spent this month laughing about all the cute things Mia came up with. Her two-word sentences are priceless and I love how her vocabulary has expanded to describe this amazing world she is discovering. Every time she opens her mouth, I am amazed at...

I can only describe this month as one of pure joy, having actual conversations with Mia and mostly wondering how extraordinary blessed I am to have such a cute little girl. She absolutely has the cuteness factor at this age; melting hearts wherever she goes.   Even...

Mia has a hero, and it is her five-year-old brother, Janno! Wherever he goes, Mia follows. Janno’s room is her favourite place in the whole house. When Janno plays outside, Mia is there. When Janno drinks water, Mia wants the same. At 14 months of age,...

I’ve come to the shocking realisation that my little Mia is exactly like me in so many ways. I suddenly have a very deep level of understanding and compassion for my own parents and have been wondering this week how they ever managed to cope...
