Get to know me

 

Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Kari and I am the mother of Isaya. Or actually, I am one of her mothers. Because a couple of years ago I married the love of my life, who also happened to be a woman. So probably not your average mom blog as we are two mamas and a baby. But we went and go through all the same stuff (new) parents and families go through. And then we went and go through some other stuff, a little less ordinary. And that’s what I share with you on my website: our journey as parents and our journey as two gay mothers. I would love to take you along.

We live in the Netherlands, but I grew up on an Island in the Caribbean. I started this blog in September 2016 and mainly write baby related blogs; everything from pregnancy, to birth, to (co-) sleeping, breastfeeding, baby wearing, weaning, children’s play and toys and all the happiness, fears, exhaustion and love that comes with being a mother. I will also share with you the obstacles we have overcome, as a gay couple, to get pregnant. There is so much joy in motherhood! You will definitely find your fair share of joyous moments on my blog. But I would also love for this to be a place where other mothers can find understanding and share their struggles, because it is not always easy, this parenting thing!

But of course there is more to motherhood than the perfect diaper cream and sleepless
nights. There is you! As a mother I know how hard it can be to find the time to take care of yourself. That’s why my website is also a source of inspiration to incorporate a healthy lifestyle into your busy life as a parent. If you are searching for ways to stay fit and eat healthy, while taking care of your babies or children; this is the place for you.

And because taking care of yourself, for me, includes not only the inside, but also the outside of your body, I love to write about make-up, skincare, clothes, bags and shoes. In a three-girl-household you bet there is a lot of that going on!
