THE ‘PEPERNOTENWINKEL’ 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”! Amsterdam is a store richer and what is more fun than a store full of pepernoten (a Dutch treat, which is something like a gingernut cookie). (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…)

IN THE ‘KINDERKOOKKAFE’ CHILDREN ARE THE BOSS by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (3) and Quinten (1,5). 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”! It’s not Amsterdam’s best kept secret, so you gotta be in the mood for a crowd, but the Kinderkookkafe (means something like childscookingcafe) is absolutely worth a visit. It’s in the Vondelpark, at the Overtoom, just past the Melkhuis and opposite the Tennisclub. In the Kinderkookkafe the kids are cooks and the parents are customers and how Just loved it! (more…)

And for those who have never been there with kids: GO! (more…)
