The product that changed my nights

I will jump straight in to it.

This product has simply changed my life.
And changed it for the better

Before this I was tired all the time.

I fell asleep during bus rides to work.

I fell asleep during those really important meetings at work.

And of course I fell asleep during those important sport matches.

And this all had one simple reason.

Not enough sleep.

Not enough sleep makes a man tired.

Not enough sleep makes a man want to sleep.

The fact that I didn’t have enough sleep had one simple (and small) reason.

Cake Baking Time With Dad

Cake Baking introduction

It is Saturday afternoon. But it could be any day. This doesn’t really matter to the rest of the story.
It doesn’t even affect the story in any way.

But it is Saturday afternoon and I am at home with the 4 year old. I am busy with some work that needs to be done and he isn’t really doing anything.

Those two do not go well together.

Rush Hour : Dad delivering the kids

6.15 a.m.

The sound of my mobile phone plays a funky tune.
My eyes start to open.
They don’t want to open all the way.
My mind goes: ‘ I need to shave today… ‘
My hand makes an almost automatic movement and changes the time of my alarm clock on my mobile phone.

Weightscale with Karma

So this just happened to me. It might have had something to do with karma or something like that.

A couple of weeks ago I was in the clean up mood. Just throwing things away, Marie Kondo-ing the place. And offcourse I also threw away our scale.
I thought the thing was broken. It showed crazy numbers. It changed a couple of kilograms every time I went on it to check my weight.

I just threw the damn thing out of the house.

Free Baby Feeding Schedule

Thankfully our smallest one is now more than one year old.
Or more then 12 months old, for those counting in months (as is normal with babies).

And thankfully we do not have to write up what his food intake is during the day.

Offcourse we stopped with that before the boy was 12 months old.

But I can still remember those first couple (11 or so) months that we had to keep notes on how much he had eaten during the day. We used a true Baby Feeding Schedule. (yes, we where a little bit crazy, but it also helped us).

The Abacus

‘Oh no’, is what I thought.
‘We forgot The Abacus.’
‘Oh no, not The Abacus.’
‘Yes, The Abacus.’

Although I never heard of the word before. I like it. Abracadabacus.

But when did we forget about it?

A day at the Moco Museum Amsterdam

There are a couple of fun things to do when it Is daddyday. Number one on my sons list is going to an indoor playground.

Well. Not on this day.

Today it is time for some learning.

‘You gonna learn today son.’

Today it is time to go to a museum. For both of our sakes, not one of those dusty old ones. We are going to a modern art museum. The Moco Museum in Amsterdam.

It has an exhibition on Banksy, which I just have to see. And there are also some works from masters like Warhol, Basquiat, Haring, Koons, Kusama, Hirst & Dali. (yeah, I copied that from their website).

We are back

Well, it has been quite a while.

But I guess that we are back.

Some things have changed during the latest blogpost.

For instance. The boy got older and is now 4 years old.

On top of that, we now got two boys.

The youngest one is now 16 months.

Both of them give and consume loads of energy.

Like, right now.

The four year old keeps coming back and also wants to type a message.

So, here is your commercial break for today:

Time goes so fast

Remember when you were a kid and you were counting the days down to your birthday, holiday or any other fun day.
Days seemed to go by so slow.

It took ages for you to grow even a centimeter.

School days went even by slower.

So, what has changed this.
