Finally this mum can enjoy a descent cup of coffee

I never thought I would manage to see that day. A cool coffee place has opened in our little town. Don’t get me wrong, I have come to really love and appreciate little Värnamo especially after I became a parent. It’s small, compact, convenient, safe, perfect for families. Before that, I liked the quietness (it helped a lot to calm down my nerves after 30 years of living in chaotic Athens) but it was a boring city (maybe still is a bit) with a few coffee places but noone really knew how to make a coffee. I mean why do you have to burn the milk when you are trying to make microfoam? That’s right, this is not microfoam, or not even foam. This is just burned milked.

But finally one of the big franchises has opened here. Now when you hear franchise you immediately doubt the quality. But trust me, it’s nothing like the shitty Starbucks coffee, they actually do make an effort and the coffee is amazing. I have worked as a barista in a local coffee shop years ago, and my employers were (still are) what you call coffee snobs. I’m greateful cause they taught me everything about coffee.

So now that we have a nice modern coffee place in town I cannot hide my enthusiasm. I mean I am actually typing this sitting here enjoying my flat white. #happiness

 

The story so far…sunny days with a boy and a sick eye

The story so far…sunny days with a boy and a sick eye

Sooo…. My eyes vision is almost back to normal but the virus is still there and the doctor said it will take 6 months or so to fully heal. The good thing is that I feel/see almost 100% like before so that’s something.

Finally some sun! I mean at last Sweden you owed it to us. The past few days have been fantastic so I have been outside almost all day with my little one. Perfect.

Speaking of my little one, he still doesn’t eat solids. I mean that’s cool and everything, he will eat food eventually but it seems so weird. He showed lots of interest a couple of months ago but then nothing. And he is a big baby, chubby and tall and you would think that he eats two portions in each meal. Nope. Just formula and välling, which is a Swedish thing, drinkable oatmeal. That’s it. But since he is growing and developing fine then no worries.

I have bought him a feeder thingy so that he can experiment himself and eat as much as he wants and it kind of works. We’ll see how far it will take us.

How long did it take your babies to start eating solids? Any tricks or tips to share?
