”MY CHILDREN ARE VERY MUCH ”ROUTINE CHILDREN””

”MY CHILDREN ARE VERY MUCH ”ROUTINE CHILDREN””

Mum of three, Katya, goes bananas with Christmas decorations, but at the same time she thinks that the holiday season with three small children, can be a bit hard!

WHO: Katya, @katyasinka
AGE: 33
OCCUPATION: Photographer and creative director at @mushie_co
CHILDREN: Twins Leo and Olivia, soon to be 5, and Ella, 18 months
HOME: Helsingborg, South of Sweden  

Q What about Christmas has changed for you, after having children?

A Well, I never used to celebrate Christmas before. I am orthodox, so we celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January, and we celebrate it in a different way. So, I learnt all the Scandinavian Xmas traditions, and a way of doing it together with my children.

 Q Name one Christmas tradition that is special for you and your children.

A Baking. We do it every Sunday... each Advent! It makes a mess in the kitchen, but I love it! 

Q What is the most difficult part about having children in the middle of a festive season?

 A Night-time. My children are very much "routine children" so they go to bed at 07.00 pm, and they actually go like, "mummy we want to sleep". So, celebrations in the evenings are a bit hard on them.

Q Name your favourite Nofred product.

 A The Mouse Chair Junior for the twins! It fits perfectly with our Nordic home décor.

Q What is your ultimate Christmas-wish, if you could pick one Nofred product?

 A A Mouse Bench!

 Q What is your children's favourite Christmas treat?

 A PEPPARKAKOR (ginger bread hard cookies) ha ha.

Q Do you love buying presents, or do you just want to be done with it?

 A I LOVE IT!! It is so much fun! 

 Q Christmas ornaments: Do you go crazy, or do you hand pick a few?

 A I go BANANAS!
