During the holiday time, I had a chance to go to shopping with Maya. It was rare to go out just two of us, without Hanna. So I had a great daughter-mother time with her.  Recently, she is interested in borrowing my scarf and some clothes and she is big enou...

My cat, Flip
One of my cats, Flip, passed away yesterday. He was 15-year-old, but acted like a 5-year-old kid. He has truly believed that he is one of my children. So he would compete to get my attention with Maya and Hanna. He would get upset if I don't serve his dinne...
