” IN THAT MOMENT, ALL EXHAUSTION DISAPPEARS!”
Q&A with Copenhagen based mom of two boys @stephaniebachh.
Q: The perfect Sunday scenario with two small children?
A: Both boys sleep until 7:30. My husband has been at the bakery with Walter and made a breakfast table. The rest of the morning is spent on the playground. Lunch and afternoon nap for Holger in the garden with the family, followed by a Sunday roast.
Q: The hardest part about having two children?
A: The lack of sleep and nights with the kids, when they wake up several times. You are available 24/7, and we have learned, that the fact that the boys are born close to each other doesn’t make it easier. It’s been damn hard for the first two years!
Q: What is the best thing about having two children?
A: Watching them interact. For example, when Walter asks Holger “do you wanna hold hands?” And then they grab each other’s tiny hands. In that moment, all exhaustion disappears!
Q: Is it demanding making all the kiddie-thingamajigs part of the home décor?
A: I try, as far as possible, to integrate their things in our home décor. But I don’t always compromise. If it is something that cannot be put away, then I want to be able to enjoy looking at it.
Q: What is your favourite Nofred product?
A: Mouse Bench in Oak. That was the first piece of furniture I bought, when I found out we were having a little brother. I couldn’t resist the thought of both of my boys sitting there, next to each other.
Q: Do you clean up every night, or do you embrace the children’s mess?
A: The boys drag cars, animals, and all sorts of things around with them inside the entire apartment, so we have to tidy up every evening! But I still think it’s messy.
