Estelea's Blog

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.

Parenthood is saying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Oddly enough, this is the definition of insanity.

Coincidence? I think not.
