Welcome everyone and anyone!

We've reinvented ourselves (or rather changed the name, we're still the same ) so if you find yourself unfulfilled in the friendship department, whatever the reason, or just want to chat, COME ON IN!:

Help me out MittensKittens!

Wow. DD peed the bed. Then the other side of the (huge) bed got all wet from milk. Then I had a diaper leak this morning. Guess who is going to be scrubbing the mattress this morning? :

I love baking cakes too! What are you making? Carrot or zucchini cake are my favorites but I will go for pretty much any cake.

I finished cleaning the mattress, and am drinking coffee. Now we are all going to have a bath, and I am cooking, cleaning... bla bla. How boring. I really have to find myself something exciting to do. I keep planning to go to these LLL type meetings but they are only once a month and a bit out of my way.

Hey, did you get a free sub to the digital version of mothering?

Oh I meant to ask you, mimi, how your family does language. Is Emi bilingual? Kaya has reached the stage where she messes up two languages constantly, and we haven't really started doing English yet either. Her preferred language is the local language where we live.

ummm, in german it's called Bienenstich. it's one layer of cake, then really thick vanilla pudding, then cake, & on top it's little bits of butter & roasted+candied almonds.

I'd never seen a copy of mothering before. I have read one article, which is OK. I was struck by the huge amount of advertising to be honest. About half of it seems to be advertising.

That cake sounds delicious... may I have the recipe? Please?

no, but they can choose not to renew our contract in a year.
or she says she wants to sell her house, in that case we have one month to find somewhere else.

my children are clean, dressed & fed,
my carpets are cleaned & hoovered, our home is tidy & smells nice, all the washing up is done, looks like i might be making cake after all today.


[ i'll translate the recipe in just a moment, then i'll post it ]

i have never seen one, i read the articles online , but mostly i'm just here in the community.
that's a shame with the advertising. doesn't seem like mothering, i would have thought.

Well, the ads are mostly for baby carriers and cloth diapers, but that's still advertising
