UIT TIP PARIJS: Regen? Ga naar het Art Centre | UrbanMoms.nl

GOING OUT IN PARIS: Rain? Go artistic, but urban!

Let me introduce myself; my name is Liz and I live with Lou and our son Flip (2014). We live in Amsterdam but love to travel around the world. We are always looking for new local hotspots, young designers and trendy gadgets. Cities we’ve been to we re-discover with the little one and a pram ;-) Situated in the 19th district is CENTQUATRE (104). A cultural centre for local residents, artists in all their forms and regular people like us. For this tip we take the subway from downtown Paris. Flip loves it. (more…)

WITH THE KIDS TO A PERFORMANCE OF WONDERLAND by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). 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 noise, 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”! A few weeks ago, I went to a play of Wonderland with the boys and the two daughters of a good friend. This play was in the Buiksloterkerk (North), a real cool spot to go to a play some time! But the makers of Wonderland have plays in several spots. (more…)

THE FOREST GNOME TRAIL IN THE AMSTERDAM FOREST by guestblogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). 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 noise, 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”! Fall is my favorite time of year to go into the forest. Fresh breeze, beautiful colors and often a lovely sun. The boys love it too; a lot of space and sticks to play with everywhere and tree-trunks to climb. Getting dirty and warming up with a hot chocolate at home, love it! (more…)

[EVENT REPORT] CINEKID FESTIVAL AMSTERDAM tried & tested

Today, I went with Flint to the Cinekid festival at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. A film, TV and media festival for kids from 11 till 18 October 2014. Without expectations, I went there. Also a bit with the thought; if Flint doesn't like it, then I'll be home soon. After all he's not even 4yo. And is this festival suitable for him? But my answer is a resounding yes :). (more…)

BLIJBURG: IBIZA VIBES IN AMSTERDAM by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). 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 noise, 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”! If it's so hot as last week, you have to look for a little refreshment with kids. As an Amsterdam (urban) mom, you have a few options; the park (with small swimming pools), the beach (which you are -without a car- soon sentenced to overcrowded trains to Scheveningen) and... Blijburg! (more…)
