Advice from Christina:
1. Do you have a special recipe?
Yes I do! I’m often lazy to cook in the mornings, I always want to hang out in bed with Milly a bit longer instead of jumping up and cooking an elaborate breakfast of three dishes. A couple of years ago I found a recipe of ‘lazy dumplings’, they require just as much time as any porridge and, unlike the porridge, don’t feel as boring. You can make the dough in advance, and all you will have to do in the morning is just put them in the boiling water. You can serve them with some fresh fruit, which is my favourite, may be some sour cream, honey or some grandma’s jam! Amazing taste and amazing colours!
2. Do you have any motherhood tricks?
I think every young parent knows how hard it is to give medicine to your child. Usually it causes a lot of screaming. And no wonder! Sometimes medicine can be really bitter or simply really disgusting to the taste, especially for the little ones. I learned a really useful trick from my girlfriend mothers, that I will gladly share with you! If the medicine is in the form of a syrup, you can make a little hole in the soother, put the syrup inside and give it to your toddler. This little lifehack saved me a lot of times!
3. Tell us about how you spend your weekends with family.
We do different things every time! But always with a lot of fun and productivity! We can hardly ever afford to spend a weekend laying in bed at home. Sometimes we go out for some events for moms and kids or visit our friends, but mostly we go for walks around the city or to parks. However it got a bit more difficult in winter. You can’t really stay out for too long because of the cold, so we are now on the search for a pool for kids with a good coach.
4. What items would you pick from our store?
For Milly we picked out the stylish leopard print Golden Goose sneakers, a Bang Bang dress with a bow tie and a comfy playsuit Macarons with a beautiful colour combination. For me, as for a mother of a girl, style is just as important as comfort because I’m convinced that you should bring the taste up from an early age!
