“Sometimes I have no idea what to do!”
Alongside being a young city mum to two school-aged kids, Carl (9) and Rebecca (6), Amalie Nebelong (35) has written for some of Denmark’s biggest fashion magazines. And even though her children’s many collections don’t always mesh with Amalie’s love of order and simplicity, she’s an advocate for meditating your way out of the biggest frustrations!
We believe everything should have its place, and that we should only have things we actually use. That means we don’t have especially many things, but the things we have are of high quality. But my kids, like other kids, are little collectors. And that should be allowed. But by the evening, all the toys need to be out of the living room and back in place in the children’s rooms. By that time, I’ve got a toe in the mean-mummy zone!
Routines and lots of family-only time, which I would say has given us confident, well-balanced, happy children. Not to suggest that they aren’t hopeless once in a while!
The funny things they say, the hugs, and seeing them slowly becoming their own people.
