Dear client. I am not a mom

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 18:26:29 +0000

“Are you active or just a MOM?”, emailed one of my clients. This question made me furious. Knowing very well what a “yes” answer would mean: less business. On one hand I am happy that they asked me that question. I know now what he thinks, and maybe what more people think about me. Obviously I […](image)

Letting go of our baby daughter

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 22:32:06 +0000

“Mom, can you move the diaper bag?” asks my 11yo. The diaper bag is where it’s always at. Behind the couch, close to the kitchen. So we can easily restock it in case we need to leave the house with our baby daughter. I answer that I just can’t yet, and add “…but you can […](image)

The most unlucky people in the world

Wed, 22 Jan 2014 19:00:06 +0000

“We’re the most unlucky people in the world,” says my 10yo. “Not only did we loose a child once, we lost children TWICE!” I cry. But we are not unlucky, and we are no victims. Although what have these potential adoptions turned out unfortunate for us. Last year we were in the process of adopting […](image)

Ik raak mijn baby kwijt – I am loosing my baby (written in Dutch)

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 06:34:22 +0000

Because of privacy reasons, this blog post is written in a non-english language. “Je gaat bij je tante wonen,” bereid ik mijn dochter Elise voor. Ze is nu zes maanden, en kruipt inmiddels achteruit, maar nog niet vooruit. Elise begrijpt er zelf nog niets van, maar bij mij komt het hard aan. De tranen schieten […](image)

Op Reis – Back to writing in Dutch

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 21:50:31 +0000

Daar zit ik dan in mijn hotel kamer in Chicago. Twee slapende jongens naast me. De een ligt op een rollaway bed, de andere op een chaise-longue. Zelf heb ik het Kingsize bed bemachtigt nadat ik Krijn eruit heb gejaagd. “Dat bed is voor mama.” De ambulances gieren hier door de straten. Net zoals ik […](image)

This is who I really am…

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 08:48:47 +0000

It’s been 6 years now since I last updated my About page on this blog. It’s not like nothing happened in the past 6 years. I would love to share with you what has made me to who I am today. Here it goes: I’m a risk taker, a challenger and a hard working idealist. […](image)

Don’t follow the American Dream, it’s a myth

What a journey! in 2007 we arrived in the United States for what we thought was a 3 month family vacation. Now, more than 5 years later, we have build a living for ourselves. Rutger (my husbands) web hosting company celebrates 10 years. Run from 3 different continents. Branding Personality celebrated 5 years in the […](image)

Why the pressure to perform at school is not healthy for your child

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 01:52:50 +0000

The kids in todays world are pressured to perform, not pressured to learn. Achievements, achievements, achievements. It looks like it’s all about the end results. And it shouldn’t. Especially for kids. Suicides happen more often nowadays. Cheating is happening everywhere. It doesn’t matter what your kids think or what they care about, it’s all about […](image)

Why my kids are not in school anymore

Sun, 11 Nov 2012 09:07:52 +0000

This summer I took my kids out of school. Forever. It wasn’t an easy choice when I though of the convenience of having free daycare. But it was an easy and obvious choice when I thought about what is good for my kids. Ask many kids and they will tell you they don’t like to […](image)
