I am a mother of two young children. The first is 4 years 4 months, and the youngest almost 14 months. I can honestly say I haven’t had a full night with uninterrupted sleep since 2013, first pregnancy, a time when I had to get up often at night and visit the toilet or simply […]

My son is 4 years 4 months. Within 1 year and 4 months he has been bullied twice. Or rather he felt attacked, and scared, and my interpretation of the events was ‘being bullied’. But young kids do not think and act in the same way as adults do. A toddler that acts out is […]

If you bought the Times of Malta last Sunday, chances are you’ve read the interview I gave to PINK magazine, and know that a beautiful baby girl called Nelly has been welcomed to our family. It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post on my website, and I had not mentioned anything so […]

The last few days Roy was away in Bangkok for a conference and I was alone with Erik in Koh Lanta. I must admit I didn’t feel particularly comfortable being alone here, but nevertheless it had to be done.
