kids don't need you to be a superhero, they just need you to be available

Hi, I'm Karin, a globetrotting working mum enjoying the challenge of parenthood in this digital age.
I grew up on cheese and chocolate sprinkles in the Netherlands, feasted on tapas in Barcelona before moving to the Middle East, where I've been sliding down sand dunes for over a decade.
I've travelled the world for business and pleasure, and since 2012 as a family. Exploring new places together is a powerful way to create strong family bonds and to get to know yourself. I guess you could say I'm hooked.
I know how to use a drill. My husband and I built our holiday home in Africa and we're still married! We often build stuff with the kids, it's a fun way to boost their confidence and skill. I'm totally addicted to their proud little faces.
I've met too many amazing parents who lack confidence in their parenting skills, feeling guilty and inadequate. And to me, that's a real shame. Kids don't expect us to be super mummies and daddies, they just want our undivided attention. Some dedicated family time.
This site aims to take the hassle out of planning your precious family time, be it your kids' birthday party, a DIY project or a family holiday. Guides and templates all available for you to download and implement, so you can spend less time planning and more time playing, building and bonding.
Because we could all use a little help.
