Subjects Which Should Be Taught At School - Romanian Mum Blog

School is one of the most important experiences of our lives. From the age of 3 until 18, we are put through our paces learning about science, maths and the english language. There are a lot of subjects which are taught in school which are very useful and help us develop as people in our early years – but there are also a lot of things we aren’t taught about which could impact our lives as we grow into adulthood. Today I want to take a look at some of the top subjects which should be taught…

My first experience with DoTerra - Romanian Mum Blog

Today I would like to talk to you about my first experience with DoTerra. I was very skeptical about this whole thing because I really didn’t think that some oils can help with pains and colds. I mean I am all for natural treatments but it sounded a bit too unreal to me. However, last september I met Brindusa at a course in Constanta and fell in love with the smell of the “Lemon Oil”. But that wasn’t the first time I heard about DoTerra. The first time I heard about DoTerra was when I was on…

Brilliant Ways to Manage Your Debt - Romanian Mum Blog

Saving money in this day and age is quite difficult. Everything is really expensive – so it has become really hard to built or ha to buy a house because salaries remained small. If one wants to take his family on holiday as well he really needs to save or use the help of a credit card. I really don’t like using money I don’t really have because this is what credit card money or loans are in the end anyway. But what can you do? Always live in a small rented place or never take your family and…

How not to be the perfect parent - Romanian Mum Blog

When hubby and I decided to have kids we didn’t actually wondered if we will be good at it or not. Ok that’s a lie. Hubby always said that I will make a great mother. But I always disagree. Nobody can be good always. Everybody makes mistakes in life and we make lots with our kids.Our grandparents made mistakes with our parents. And our parents (although they might try to deny it) made mistakes with us.So for sure we are prone to make mistakes with our kids even though they will be different…

I want to be a REAL princess - Romanian Mum Blog

I said it many times on this blog already that my 4 year old is a very girly girl. This was proven to me even more over the holidays period, Because she knew she didn’t have to go to nursery every single morning started with the same question: “Mummy mummy can I please please wear a dress today?” with her eyes still half closed. And she didn’t give up until she got the wanted answer: “Yes!” I mean seriously. The only thing I wanted was to sleep and lounge in my pj’s. She was over the moon…
