Bedtime struggles are getting worse and worse.

Bedtime struggles are getting worse and worse..every night we have a couple of crying concerts, so sleeping deprivation forced me to seek among my friends, the magic recipe for ensuring that babies stay asleep in their cribs... and i got some interesting advices...
The most popular tips were the sleeping schedule, basically a regime for their sleeping hours, putting them to sleep in the right moment, or introducing a comforting bedtime ritual...well, i must admit that lately we became very inconsistent with the sleeping schedule. Before the holidays the girls used to have a strict sleeping routine and indeed were sleeping through the night, at least for 8-10 hours without waking up.. some friends just told me that it s a phase and will pass away, but my impatient character can't accept this i started searching in the web for experts advice..i was surprised of how many sites and blogs are exclusively dedicated to this issue...too many moms are suffering?!

Good morning! i did the operation and now I am at home, safe and sound!

I am still overwhelmed from this fantastic emotion when you feel that all the people you love are close to you! even if they are far away physically...thank you what's up, face time, viber & skype!

I don't know if this is a random coincidence or the universe responds, but a couple of days after my first post, i broke my leg! While I was going down the stairs with one of my angels on my arms, I stumbled and put my foot on the staircase to prevent us from falling down and having my baby hurt...and I fractured my shinbone...complicated fractures...for which i need operations, rehabilitation bla bla bla... Anyhow, since i am a positive thinking dude, i won't be here crying over spilt milk; on the contrary, trying to see the glass half full, I realised that now i have more time to dedicate myself to this blog!

At the moment i am in Haifa at my husband's family. This post is inspired from Israel...

If you read the headlines, Israel sounds as a non safe place to visit; Often people asks me if I am afraid to come here..(it also occurred being asked if i have to wear a burka, or if we move with camels, but i won't comment on it). Well, on the contrary, you will be surprised how peaceful life rolls along -well at least, at the majority part of the country. Even two weeks ago when the rumours about Syria's attack with chemicals to Israel, were speculating, I did't feel any panic here...I won't speak about politics, that's not the purpose of my blog.

About me and the blog

Αρκετό καιρό σκεφτόμουν να ξεκινήσω ένα blog για να μοιραστώ τις εμπειρίες και τις σκέψεις μου ως πολίτης του κόσμου..ζω και εργάζομαι στην Ιταλία, παντρεμένη με Ισραηλινό με ρώσσικη καταγωγή και μητέρα δύο υπέροχων διδύμων κοριτσιών τα ονόματα των οποίων εκφέρει ο τίτλος του συγκεκριμένου blog.. Maya (=generous) και Zoe(=life). Η ζωή μας ως οικογένεια multicultural διαδραματίζεται σε 4 χώρες: Ιταλία,Ελλάδα, ισράηλ και πρόσφατα Γερμανία ..στο σπίτι μιλάμε τουλάχιστον 4 γλώσσες καθημερινά και μας αρέσουν πολύ τα ταξίδια, και η ιδιαιτερότητα είναι η βασική μας αρχή σε ό,τι και αν κάνουμε..Στο blog αυτό θα προσπαθήσω να μοιραστώ την ιδιαιτερότητά μας αυτή αγγίζοντας θέματα που με απασχολόυν καθημερινά: μητρότητα, ταξίδια, lifestyle,internet, μαγειρική, βιβλία, αγορές και ότιδηποτε μου κεντρίζει το ενδιαφέρον κάθε εβδομάδα στο διαδίκτιο...

There's been a while that i was seriously thinking of starting a blog in order to share my experience and thought..i am Greek, i live and work in Italy, i am married to a Russian Israeli and we have two lovely twin girls. This blog is entitled after the meaning of their names, Maya(=generous) & Zoe(=life), after my friend Sruthi 's suggestion. I will write in english (i pardon myself for any mistakes) and in greek. Our life as a multicultural family takes place among 4 countries: Italy, Greece, Israel and recently Germany..we speak at least 4 different languages daily at home, and the originality is the key principle of our life..this originality i will try to share in this blog that features recipes, motherhood issues, lifestyle, travelling, shopping online and whatever Peaks my interest when browsing the web...stay tuned!!!!
