It's the small things..

Like finding a banana peel in your pocket. I hate bananas. I hate banana peels. I hate the touch of bananas and have a really hard time watching kids (other than mine) eating bananas just because bananas are so gross

But here I am, with a banana peel in my pocket. I have never feel more like a mom. And like a freaking great mom! It is the small things right? In all seriousness, I have to celebrate my overcoming a ridiculous fear of bananas. I never was in to fashion anyway and I am very far from being a mom in high heels. I am not a great mom. I constantly feel like I am not doing enough, so having a banana peel in my pocket was todays win. 

I would love to hear about your victory today! What made you awesome?

Why did we start a blog?

Between the Darlene and I we have 4 kids, 2 husbands, 3 dogs, 4 jobs, and a million hobbies and so so many things on our to-do lists. But still, so much of our time goes to read and write blogs. I have blogged since 2008. We really should not do this. But we want to!

I started to blog when I first left Sweden to go on a year abroad from Sweden to Macon, Georgia, of all places in the world. Blogging kinda stuck with me. I love it. I love feeling like I am surrounded by friends from all over the world. I love the support and the often well deserved critic that comes with it. 

I hope this blog will become the way I, we, envision it. A place where I can ask questions to get answers, where I can give answers with no questions asked.. I kid. No, but a true place. Where the days can be filled with awesomeness and joy, but that there is also room for the not so awesome everyday. Where I can share my passion about bringing up my baby to be come a world citizen. The ups and downs of cross cultural families, travels and clean eating.
