Uitwaaien aan de Schelde | UrbanMoms.nl

STROLLING ALONG THE SCHELDE by guest blogger Anaïs

Let me introduce myself: my name is Anaïs (30), Lou’s mom (2) and I work at the sales department of fashion company Hop Agenturen. I have been living in beautiful Brabant for five years now, with Han. But as a true Antwerp girl, my heart still skips a beat for this beautiful city along the Schelde. That’s why you can find me there almost every week, cause it feels like coming home every time! Time to teach Lou a little bit about our Belgium culture :) Since he was born in Antwerp, it feels like my duty to show him his 2nd city, city by the Schelde. The Schelde has always been an ideal place to get out and let the wind blow through your hear and think about nothing. (more…)

PARTY TIME FOR THE LITTLE ONES: MINI DISCO AMSTERDAM by guestblogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (almost 4) and Quinten (2). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids. Regularly I go out with the boys on friday, my day off. Of course my boys are super sweet ;) but also real boys who make a lot of noice, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”! Since visiting the disco dropped to the zero point for me, I had registered the kids for mini disco at the community center on the Roelofhartplein. Very hip Amsterdam actually, with strict guest list for which you must supply about a month in advance.And if you're not on time, you may even be placed on a real reserve list. (more…)

Hotspot: breakfast or lunch at Omelegg Amsterdam | UrbanMoms.nl

HOTSPOT: EAT YOUR DELICIOUS OMELETTES AT OMELEGG IN THE PIJP by guest blogger Jessica

Let me introduce myself: I’m Jessica, e-commerce Buyer & Merchandise Manager at Scotch & Soda and mother of 2 sons: Pelle (3) and Morrison (1). I live together with my boyfriend and the kids on the second floor in Amsterdam, right on the border of the brimming Pijp and the fancy Museumkwartier. Dinner with the kids can be a real challenge sometimes in Amsterdam. So I made it my personal challenge to spot these restaurants. Especially the ones you also love to go to without kids are my favorites. Recently, we discovered a lovely place in our neighbourhood. I regularly cycled by and noticed that there were a lot of people inside, but the name didn’t really ring a bell; ‘mel egg’. Probably something with eggs, so maybe a breakfast/brunch place? There was only one way to find out… (more…)

Shop hotspot: Bambooz in Eindhoven | UrbanMoms.nl

[SHOP] HOTSPOT: BAMBOOZ IS THE NEWEST KIDS SHOP IN EINDHOVEN by guest blogger Lonneke

Hi, I’m Lonneke and I live in Eindhoven with husband and 2 kids. I’m self-employed and I blog on Bubblemint.nl too. I love design, citytrips (Stockholm, NY, Berlin, London… but cities in Holland as well!) and I love to go out with the kids! In Eindhoven a lot has changed the last few years and that’s a very good thing! There is a lot of creativity and especially the trending area Strijp-S (old Philipsterrain) is a good example of that. I can truly enjoy it, online browse through the latest collections of hip kidsbrands. But despite the fact that I run into the most beautiful and unique items, I don’t buy a lot online. (more…)
