The Creation of Smiles #WeeklySmile

I have been smiling a lot this week, and that even though it has not always been easy to stay positive. As I have mentioned before, I smile a lot, I am almost constantly smiling. So I want to share a few moments that made me smile more.

post-milestone-200-2xJust before midnight on Wednesday I published my 200th post! I have been struggling a bit this week to find time to write. Initially I wanted it to go live on Tuesday, but it was only ready a very few minutes before Thursday started… That’s worth a smile isn’t it?

Another smile stemming from the blogging world is the very positive way in which my post Who am I? has been received. I am so happy that many people have used it as a prompt to ask themselves the same question and have been linking back. I do hope that more people will join in this exercise of self-discovery.

But these two aren’t even the principal smiles that I wanted to share…

And as a mom, I have to share some toddler moments. I told my daughter that I would have to do some work, “Ich muss arbeiten” and she started saying “Arbeit” (work) over and over again, and started crying, I guess she believed that I was off to work out of the house, but all that was going on was that I had to do some work, I guess I can no longer use “Arbeit” when I want to tell her that I need to well work…

On Monday while I was working (yes I sometimes work) my parents were babysitting my little one, and well they must have had a blast. My dad took her to the park on her scooter and she was allowed to ride the carrousel (a special grandparent treat). A photo made it’S rounds on Facebook of the two being more than happy, from what I’ve heard (I am not on Facebook) it’s received a ton of likes in a very short time. I guess many people smiled when they saw the happiness on their faces. Little one was not too happy that my mother did not join them on the excursion, she did bring her her shoes and cried a bit to convince her Oma, or “Ama” as she says to join them. I am smiling about how much love there is between the three of them, little one is showing her grandparents every day that she loves them and that they are important for her. She is even showing this to her grandparents who live far away, she just loves family and happy people, people who smile!

  1. I loved this post, as I have spent endless hours taking my grandchildren to the park in Paris on their scooters and letting them ride the carousel! Good times. Now they are in school in Greece so we do other stuff (like go to the beach in January!)

  2. How wonderful that your little one loves her grandparents so much and that they are getting to enjoy the thrill of being a part of her life. I like how you said “it’s a grandparent thing”. My children alway had special things they did only with their grandparent too! I think that makes the best memories, those traditions.

    1. I think those grandparents only activities are great. And that way I can justify not taking her to the carousel and avoid ruining myself at the same time… 🙂

  3. Great smiles! I don’t know how you feel about posting photos of your daughter (I know some people don’t for privacy reasons), but I’d like to see that picture. It sounds like it caused a lot of smiles, both the photo and in real life at the park. I guess your smiling nature is inherited and also passed down to the next generation! Thanks for this week’s smile 🙂

    1. I have so far restrained myself from posting her pictures, my parents already do that a lot… but maybe one day. I guess that I want her to decide on her own if she wants to be seen by the public or not (I do suppose she’d love to, she loves being photographed…).
      Oh she has inherited my smile, which I must probably have from my mom. 🙂


    1. Well one of those 200 is yours so, you have participated to 0.5% in my blog’s posts 🙂
      I think doing A to Z right in the beginning and then Nanopoblano in November helped, and all those guest posts…

    1. I must try that. Well I was actually referring to writing emails to people who were interested in my lessons, so it was more work than writing related (ok I want to make writing part of my work).

    1. I will have to have a look at yours. I will be a bit quiet over the next few days (no coffee with me today) but maybe I will squeeze in some reading time here and there 😉


I won't bite, seriously!
