About Jarmila

I’m a mom of three (8, 6, 4). For me, having kids means my biggest dream coming true. It’s blessing from God to have them. Although, it still applies, that children are best when they’re asleep. And on photos, too. Every night when they’re all 3 fast asleep, I go to check on them and I watch them with a smile on my face.

I just smile and enjoy the moment and the quiet in the house :)

My children. Number one, two and three.

Someone once told me that mums are only as good as they can be, not as good as they want to be. I’m not a perfect mum. But I hope my kids will read this article some day and they will appreciate that I’ve tried to understand them and I’ve always loved them for who […]

Most people love to travel. In fact, it’s getting more and more popular. Everyone wants to “see the world” before they settle down. If you’re one of the travel addicts, you certainly wouldn’t want to give it up just because you had a baby. The good news is: you don’t have to! In case you […]

Cooperation with a child

Cooperation with a child is an everyday struggle for many of us. Parents often feel frustrated when they need their children to do something and they, instead of doing it, are playing deaf.
