Why I started my blog?

Iva 's Not-So-Secret Diary

Long before I started my blog, I enjoyed reading other people’s blogs about things they did that day, or whatever was on their mind. And that got me thinking. I should start my blog too. I figured out my life is as exciting as theirs, so why not blog about it.

So on the first of January, as my New Year resolution, I started my blog. It took me quite some time to find inspiration, but when I did, I found out that blogging is so much fun. I love sharing about my day to day life as much as I love reading about other people’s lives.

Starting a blog was simple, what came after that was hard, there were the days I wanted to quit, I couldn’t find the motivation to get started, but once I did, I remembered how much I love it, and that love is what’s…

Age-appropriate chores for kids

Iva 's Not-So-Secret Diary

Recently I started to think about age-appropriate jobs for kids and how it would make my life so much easier. To be honest, I was so used to do everything my self that I didn’t even think about assigning some jobs to my kids. It doesn’t mean that I never asked them to do something, I did, and they tried so hard to ignore me, or they would wine so much that in the end, I would do it my self, and it would make me angry. So I decided to look online, and I found a list of age-appropriate jobs that I would love to share with you. And hopefully, it will help us make our life a bit easier.

For kids ages 2-3:

-put toys away

-put away books

-put away dirty laundry in the hamper

-put trash in the garbage

-grab diapers and wipes

-wipe up spills

10 Tips for travelling with kids

Iva 's Not-So-Secret Diary

Traveling with kids can sometimes be overwhelming. These are some tips and tricks you can do to make packing and traveling little easyer.

1.Don’t overpack

When we travel with kids, we always think that we need to bring lots of things with us. But we don’t. It’s easier to plan in advance, and just plan their outfits that they are gonna wear and stick to that plan.

2.Let kids bring their toys

Just let them choose their favourite things that will keep them company. That way they have something to play with during the trip. But keep in minde to limite the number of toys they bring with them. You don’t won’t to carry to much things with you.

3.Snacks , snacks, snacks…
