French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

Gone but Not Forgotten

Weekly photo challenge: Show us something that is lost, but not forgotten


Long gone, the privilege of sleeping late all those lazy Sundays..

Crawling under a big blanket and reading a fascinating book, while sipping my perfect Genmaicha… Falling asleep again, waking up only to plunge deeper into the story. Long gone those mornings, but not (yet )forgotten, as I now have a sleeping disorder: it’s called children 😉

    And what a lovely sleeping disorder…your kids are so gorgeous.
    When I hear parents saying that I am grateful to be a stepmom as I have the fun and not the obligations; ate least the not the whole time…
    Very good idea for this post. Thanks.

      Hehehe, they are indeed the best sleeping disorder!

      Well, at least your step daughter does not wake you up for her bottle of milk in the wee hours, I hope…just kidding, when one can use her phone while cycling, guess she can find her way to the fridge by now 😉

    I was just thinking about this last Saturday as I drug my half awake self up for ballet and soccer. It’s okay though–pretty soon we will be the ones trying to drag our teenagers out of bed at noon! 😉
